Security need of the hour
The 67 years old Spaniard believes that other banks and large companies will follow suit with the Standard Chartered move and jump into the crypto market. He is also concerned about the security of the investors and for this, he suggests that companies offering digital assets services will have to give maximum security to the investors. Financial stability is very important for the investors and the companies have to adhere to this feature.
