We are pleased to add Ethereum, Litecoin and Bitcoin Cash to our services just a month after introducing blockchain asset  management solutions with Bitcoin. The first reactions to our Bitcoin services have been very encouraging and we are convinced that by adding three new blockchain assets we will fulfil our clients’ future needs.
