As the blockchain and cryptocurrency ecosystem has grown since the inception of Bitcoin more than a decade ago we have seen multiple attempts to create viable trading and custody platforms. Wild West exchanges like Mt. Gox with loose security and poor infrastructure are regularly hacked leading to constant negative news. These hacks continue, leaving the door open for enterprise and major financial institutions to tackle the issues plaguing the industry.
