OAX Foundation and Blockpass have announced today an agreement that will see the firms join forces to promote advanced compliance controls in the digital asset industry. The agreement reflects the shared goal of the firms to create an industry that is open, transparent and committed to the highest governance standards.
Together, OAX Foundation and Blockpass will promote each other’s products and services, leading to improved adoption of the standards needed for a secure and sustainable industry.
Blockpass has developed a RegTech platform that offers shared regulatory and compliance services for individuals, companies, and devices. Blockpass is a digital identity application and service which brings control back to the user. Blockpass provides a streamlined and cost-effective user onboarding process for regulated industries and any kind of online service. From the Blockpass application, users can create, store, and manage a data-secure digital identity that can be used for an entire ecosystem of services or token purchases.
OAX Foundation is developing and promoting digital asset technologies for the mainstream. It is working with several leading organizations to integrate digital assets into the mainstream of the financial system. Strong compliance controls, particularly for Know Your Customer (KYC) screening, are a critical part of this process.
The emergence of securities token offerings (STOs) has given policy, legal and regulatory compliance issues renewed prominence. Security tokens are regulated investment contracts that represent legal ownership of physical or digital assets such as real estate, ETFs or corporate stocks. Educating the industry and the wider financial community about these and other developments is critical to helping digital assets achieve mainstream adoption.
