METACO, a provider of security-critical infrastructure to the blockchain asset ecosystem, today has launched METACO Harmonize, an end-to-end digital asset orchestration system for institutions.
The launch of METACO Harmonize, a robust and scalable orchestration system for digital asset applications, caters to the growing demand for institutional-grade infrastructure to manage a range of end-to-end digital asset use cases from decentralized finance (DeFi), to tokenization, cryptocurrency custody, and smart contract management.
“The launch of METACO Harmonize is driven by the exponential growth of the digital asset economy, from an increase in the number and types of assets which are being tokenized, an increase in the number of counterparties trading those assets, and an increase in the relevance of decentralized finance applications. As a result, our customers are faced with progressively complex needs regarding the storage, trading, tokenization, and staking, but also regarding advanced DeFi use cases and growing regulatory requirements; orchestration of these many new capabilities and interactions has become an inevitable need. METACO Harmonize was developed together with our customers and provides institutions with a platform which will enable them to scale their digital asset operations with the requisite flexibility.”
– Adrien Treccani, CEO and Founder of METACO
