June 10, 2021 – London, United Kingdom
Nexo, the leading regulated institution for digital assets, has commissioned Armanino LLP, one of the largest accounting firms in the US and a global leader in digital asset solutions, to provide real-time attestations over the company’s custodial holdings.
Through Armanino’s TrustExplorer attest platform, Nexo will offer investors, customers and regulators the highest level of trust available in the market by means of uninterrupted access to industry standard attest reporting and a snapshot of Nexo’s total assets and liabilitiesupdated daily.
The attestation procedures performed are in accordance with the standards set by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, with the results to be communicated in due course across Nexo’s channels. Full information expressed in US dollars, including an open dashboard of assets and liabilities, on-demand reporting and other information, will be publicly accessible once the attestation engagement is complete.
Antoni Trenchev, co-founder and managing partner at Nexo, said,
“Because a self-regulated space means more, not less transparency, offering accurate public reserves information is an absolute requisite for crypto-native companies. We are happy to have opened our books to allow Armanino, an expert accounting firm with an impressive digital assets practice, to verify that our company’s assets exceed liabilities at all times and demonstrate how seriously we treat Nexo’s commitments to our customers.”
Noah Buxton, practice leader of Armanino’s digital assets practice, said,
“We are delighted to be working closely with the team at Nexo to continue their strident commitment to offering the most trustworthy crypto lending product for global customers. The Nexo team’s ethos impressed us from day one, and we continue to be aligned in our belief that crypto assets allow for more trust and transparency to customers and markets than traditional financial products. Innovation and self-regulation are the path forward.”
Ensuring a high level of public accountability is a decisive step towards realizing the auditability potential of the digital assets space. This is why Nexo has undertaken a year-round transparency and governance initiative, including monthly ask-me-anything sessions, a governance proposal and a public licenses and registrations page.
While regulators accommodate the cryptocurrency ecosystem within existing legal frameworks, Nexo is proud to be leading the wayto not only meeting the highest industry standards, but also exceeding them to set the bar higher for the entire space.
Nexo is the world’s leading regulated digital assets institution. The company’s mission is to maximize the value and utility of cryptocurrencies by offering tax-efficient instant crypto credit lines, a high-yield earn on crypto and fiat suite, an instant exchange service and sophisticated trading and OTC capabilities, while providing the top-tier custodial insurance and military-grade security of the Nexo wallet.
