Liechtenstein Bank Frick opens shop for crypto investment

29. December 2018

Liechtensteiner Bank Frick intends to open up its business segment to investment in crypto currencies. In the future, it should be possible for customers of the bank to invest in one of the five leading digital currencies. The family-run bank announced this on its homepage last week. Thus the bank joins a currently still manageable group of financial institutions that venture the step into digital investment with crypto currencies.

Bank-guided investment in the five world market leaders Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin, Ripple and Ether – all this will be possible for international customers at Liechtensteiner Bank Frick in the future. Last week the bank, which also has a seat in the European financial heart of London, published a corresponding press release on its homepage.

This one says about the Bitcoin news:

“Our services are demanded by Bitcoin news companies from all over Europe. Because they know that we offer trustworthy support in the implementation of their business models and not a Bitcoin news scam with crypto currencies and blockchain applications in accordance with the legal framework,

Hubert Büchel, the leading client advisor, explains the requirements of the new offer.

“We aim to place crypto-banking at least at the same quality level as traditional banking.”

Cold storage wallets are intended to offer security as a way of storing purchased coins offline. This should also take away the concerns of investors with conventional backgrounds and more conservative investment practices about possible hacker attacks and thus open up markets. At the same time, however, customers have to put up with background checks on their own money.

In the past, multi-digit million amounts have already been captured several times in attacks on investors. At the same time the legislator of these days drives the concern of criminal potentials in the haze circle of crypto currencies, approximately as money laundering possibility, over. Possible suspicions one seems to want to exclude on the part of the bank Frick resident in the tax haven Liechtenstein.

The turnaround confirms the quite friendly course towards crypto currencies and blockchain applications in the Alpine region. Last year, the Swiss private bank Falcon Group also opened its doors to crypto investors. Meanwhile, the Swiss canton of Zug is presenting itself as a model pupil and is advertising with the title Crypto-Valley.

Finance and Bitcoin formula still hesitant at present

Although the Bitcoin formula made its way through the international stock exchanges to Wall Street and thus into the sacred halls of finance, especially at the end of last year, the Bitcoin was able to make its way unerringly: In addition to the American one, the Russian and German digital stock exchanges EUREX, for example, had announced a future Bitcoin IPO.

In addition to individual investment banks and hedge funds, however, most financial service providers remain hesitant, especially in the wake of the ultimately strong price volatility of recent months – despite seemingly initial enthusiasm in the course of the pre-Christmas price sprint.

The American investment giant Goldman Sachs, for example, had caused quite a stir at the end of last year with its announcement that it might open a crypto-currency division in the future. A short time later, however, the bank denied this and referred in its monthly report in January to a currently prevailing “crypto-currency mania”. Also the annual outlook as well as the annual reports of several competitors considered Bitcoin in the past month for instance as investment risk.

Entering Bitcoin trader Mining will be easier for institutional investors in the future – and in the best case also more lucrative

While a mass media grave is being dug while Bitcoin trader digging for the largest of all crypto currencies, the seemingly beleaguered Bitcoin trader industry will not be further impressed. According to a press release issued by BTC-ECHO, XOLARIS Service KVAG has launched a special AIF for professional investors. The private equity fund invests through a Liechtenstein target company in the infrastructure necessary for the production of Bitcoins. This is intended to financially support an already existing operational mining farm in Sweden.

Private Equity Funds: crypto trader investment opportunities for venture capital companies

Private equity funds are used to invest in promising crypto trader companies in order to promote their development and growth targets and make them achievable as reported here: Once the targets have been achieved, the acquired shares can be sold at a profit or the company can be placed on the stock exchange. Often the support of the companies goes beyond financial support and is complemented by entrepreneurial advice.

Private investors benefit both during the investment period and after the final profit from the sale of shares or the stock exchange placement. As this is an investment form for investors with comparatively high capital, it is particularly attractive for institutional investors. The focus is on companies that already go beyond the start-up or development phase.

Private equity or over-the-counter equity capital or private equity capital is thus a form of so-called equity capital in which the investment cannot be traded on regulated markets or stock exchanges. The investors are often capital investment companies, which are also known as private equity companies. In the case of risky young companies, this is referred to as venture capital. The investors are accordingly called venture financing companies or venture capital companies. (Source:
