This collaboration marks a significant stride towards a future where secure, diverse, and compliant crypto investments are the norm.”

Arthit Sriumporn, Founder and CEO of Rakkar Digital, echoed the sentiment, saying, “As institutional adoption continues to grow as with the recent spot Bitcoin ETF approvals, clarity in regulations and tighter asset security requirements are expected to come. Rakkar Digital, as a trusted and qualified digital asset custodian, envisions to be a strategic growth partner for institutions such as Maxbit to achieve compliance, security, and agility.”

This appointment came shortly after the recent announcement of Rakkar Digital’s appointment by InnovestX Securities as custodian.
