To Prash Puspanathan, founder and CEO at Caleb and Brown, an Australian-based boutique consultancy firm providing cryptocurrency services, the two primary barriers that impede greater institutional investment are a lack of regulatory oversight and trust. It is the latter of these factors, trust, where technology can play a huge part in cementing.

And it is being addressed, he says. This is through the development of innovative solutions for secure custody from multi-signature wallets, to sharded private keys, to analog thumb-printing of hardware wallets, combined with secure vault storage. However, it is only when we achieve dependable underwriting of these assets that we will be able to justifiably state that a custodial solution worthy of institutional reputational risk exists, Prash says. The lack of a comprehensive, secure and trusted custodial solution for digital assets needs to be addressed. And it is being addressed.
