Dukascopy Bank and Swiss Crypto Exchange (SCX) announce an integration partnership allowing instant trading of Dukascoin (DUK+) against Bitcoin (BTC) and trading of other crypto currencies

Zurich, July 11th 2019 – Dukascopy Bank, a FINMA regulated banking institution in Geneva and the first one to have issued its own crypto payment coin DUK+ for public use will allow its 120’000 clients to opt-in into the Swiss Crypto Exchange and start trading Dukascoin (DUK+) against Bitcoin (BTC) and trade other crypto currencies.

Dukascopy Bank and Swiss Crypto Exchange have implemented a crypto trading integration that will be available from Friday July 12th. Customers with a bank account at Dukascopy will be able to trade Swiss Francs and Euros versus Bitcoin and Ether as well as crypto-to-crypto through SCX instantaneously.

Dukascopy Bank’s clients with an existing Mobile Current Account (“MCA”) and a sub-account will opt-in into crypto trading at Swiss Crypto Exchange, receive a personal crypto wallet hosted by a Swiss crypto-asset custody infrastructure with the highest degree of security and reliability and start trading immediately.

Dukascopy’s and SCX's unique integration model succeeds at solving a major market friction for Swiss bank customers in crypto currency trading. So far clients with a Swiss bank account who wanted to trade on a neutral crypto exchange had to initiate lengthy wirings of funds for every transaction from their bank account to foreign crypto exchanges third-party bank accounts abroad. Now the entire value chain is executed with a Swiss bank account at Dukascopy Bank, through the Swiss Crypto Exchange supporting crypto wallets hosted by a Swiss secure crypto custody infrastructure.

“This seamless integration of fiat accounts and crypto trading in a unique ecosystem is a further step in the right direction for the execution of our strategy towards increased adoption and liquidity for the Dukascoin and we are pleased to have found in SCX a reliable Swiss regulated partner” comments André Duka, founder and Co-CEO Dukascopy Bank.

“Our strategy has always been to offer a seamless on-ramp infrastructure from fiat to crypto and multilateral trading for crypto-to-crypto. With this integration everything happens in a secure and regulated ecosystem in Switzerland: your bank account, your personal wallet and your access to the crypto exchange.” says Francesco Adiliberti, CEO Swiss Crypto Exchange.

Dukascopy Bank und Swiss Crypto Exchange (SCX) kündigen eine Partnerschaft an für den integrierten Handel von Dukascoin (DUK+) gegen Bitcoin (BTC) und den Handel von weiteren Kryptowährungen

Zurich, 11. Juli 2019 – Dukascopy Bank, eine FINMA-regulierte Bank mit Sitz in Genf und die erste Schweizer Bank, die einen eigenen, öffentlich zugänglichen Zahlungstoken DUK+ emittiert hat, wird ihren 120‘000 Kunden ein opting-in zur Swiss Crypto Exchange anbieten, um den Dukascoin (DUK+) gegen Bitcoin (BTC) und andere Kryptowährungen zu handeln.

Dukascopy Bank und Swiss Crypto Exchange haben eine Kryptohandel-Integration erstellt, welche ab Freitag 12. Juli den Kunden zur Verfügung steht. Kunden mit einem Bankkonto bei Dukascopy können Schweizer Franken und Euro gegen Bitcoin und Ether sowie Krypto-zu-Krypto Transaktionen nahtlos handeln.

Dukascopy Bank Kunden mit einem Mobile Current Account („MCA“) und einem Handelskonto machen somit das direkte opting-in zur Swiss Crypto Exchange, erhalten ein persönliches Wallet bei einem Schweizer Krypto-Storage Anbieter mit den höchsten Sicherheitsstandards und können unverzüglich investieren und handeln.

Die Integration von Dukascopy mit SCX löst ein beachtliches Markthindernis im Handel mit Kryptos für Kunden von Schweizer Banken. Bis anhin müssen solche Kunden, welche an einer neutralen Kryptobörse handeln möchten, umständliche Zahlungen an ausländische Banken von Kryptobörsen im Ausland machen. Jetzt kann die gesamte Abwicklung in der Schweiz gemacht werden über ein Konto bei Dukascopy Bank, die direkte Anbindung an Swiss Crypto Exchange sowie einem Wallet, welches in einer sicheren Schweizer Krypto-Storage Infrastruktur angeboten wird.

„Die nahtlose Integration von Fiat-Konten und Krypto-Handel in einem einzigartigen Ökosystem ist ein weiterer Schritt in der Umsetzung unserer Strategie, die Verbreitung und Liquidität des Dukascoins voran zu treiben. Wir freuen uns, dass wir in SCX einen zuverlässigen, regulierten Schweizer Partner gefunden haben“ sagt André Duka, Gründer und Co-CEO von Dukascopy Bank.

„Es ist seit Beginn weg unsere Strategie gewesen, einen automatisierten Zugang für Fiat-zu-Krypto Handel und einen multilateralen Handel für Krypto-zu-Krypto anzubieten. Diese Integration bringt alles in ein reguliertes Ökosystem in der Schweiz: das Bankkonto, das persönliche Wallet und der Zugang zur Kryptobörse“ sagt Francesco Adiliberti, CEO von Swiss Crypto Exchange.

Dukascopy Bank et Swiss Crypto Exchange (SCX) annonce un partenariat permettant la négociation instantanée de Bitcoin (BTC) contre Dukascoin (DUK+) ainsi que d'autres crypto-monnaies

Zurich, le 11 juillet 2019 - Dukascopy Bank, institution bancaire réglementée par la FINMA et la première à avoir émis sa propre pièce de paiement cryptée DUK+ pour un usage public, permettra à ses 120’000 clients de bénéficier des services offerts par Swiss Crypto Exchange et de négocier des Bitcoins (BTC) contre des Dukascoins (DUK +) y compris d’autres crypto-monnaies.

Dukascopy Bank et Swiss Crypto Exchange ont mis en place une solution technologique qui permettra à partir du vendredi 12 juillet, aux clients possédant un compte bancaire auprès de la banque Dukascopy d’échanger des transactions fiat-crypto et inversement.

Les clients de Dukascopy Bank possédant un compte courant mobile (“MCA“) et qui souhaitent souscrire au trading sur crypto offert par SCX, auront la possibilité de créer un “portefeuille crypté“ hébergé par une infrastructure de dépôt de “crypto-assets“ suisse. Ainsi, ils pourront bénéficier du plus haut niveau de sécurité et de commencer à négocier immédiatement.

Ce partenariat d’intégration unique entre Dukascopy Bank et de SCX résout un problème important qui a empêché les clients possédant un compte bancaire suisse d’accéder au trading sur les crypto-monnaies. Jusqu’à présent, les clients disposant d’un compte dans une banque suisse étaient confrontés à des délais de transfert de fonds pour chaque transaction entre leur compte bancaire et les bourses des crypto-monnaies. Désormais, ses dysfonctionnements sont résorbés grâce à cette solution qui intègre un compte bancaire suisse offert par Dukascopy Bank et un portefeuille en crypto-monnaies sécurisé de Swiss Crypto Exchange.

“Cette intégration transparente des comptes fiat et des portefeuilles en crypto-monnaies dans un environnement unique est un pas supplémentaire dans la bonne direction pour la mise en œuvre de notre stratégie visant à accroître l'adoption et la liquidité des Dukascoins. Nous sommes ravis d'avoir trouvé dans SCX un partenaire fiable et régulé en Suisse“ commente André Duka, fondateur et co-directeur général de Dukascopy Bank.

“Notre stratégie a toujours été de proposer une infrastructure de bout en bout transparente pour les transactions fiat-crypto et de mettre en place une négociation multilatérale pour le trading inter-crypto. Avec cette intégration, tout se passe dans un environnement réglementé en Suisse“, dit Francesco Adiliberti, CEO de Swiss Crypto Exchange.

Dukascopy Bank e Swiss Crypto Exchange (SCX) annunciano una cooperazione che permetterà la negoziazione istantanea di Dukascoin (DUK+) contro Bitcoin (BTC) e contro altre criptovalute

Zurigo, 11 Luglio 2019 – Dukascopy Bank, è una banca svizzera regolamentata dall’Autorità federale di vigilanza sui mercati finanziari (FINMA) e la prima ad aver offerto al pubblico la propria criptovaluta DUK+. La banca offrirà ai propri 120’000 clienti la possibilità di registrarsi presso la Swiss Crypto Exchange e di iniziare le negoziazioni del Dukascoin (DUK+) contro Bitcoin (BTC) e contro altre criptovalute.

Dukascopy Bank e Swiss Crypto Exchange hanno lavorato ad un’integrazione che permetterà ai clienti con un conto bancario presso Dukascopy di iniziare le negoziazioni istantanee tra monete fiat e criptovalute e vice versa tanto quanto tra criptovalute e criptovalute. I clienti di Dukascopy Bank con un conto corrente mobile (“MCA”) potranno registrarsi presso la Swiss Crypto Exchange, creare portafogli per criptovalute (“wallet”) supportati da un fornitore di servizi di custodia per criptovalute svizzero con alti livelli di sicurezza e iniziare a trattare immediatamente. 

L’unicità del modello integrato tra Dukascopy e SCX risolve un problema che sinora aveva reso difficile l’accesso a borse di criptovalute. Per acquistare Bitcoin o Ether in franchi o euro, oppure criptovalute contro criptovalute attraverso una borsa cripto, clienti con conto bancario in Svizzera erano obbligati ad affrontare lenti processi di trasferimento di denaro per ogni transazione. Nella fattispecie dal loro conto bancario presso banche terze su conti di borse estere con relazioni bancarie estere. Ora l’intera catena di valore per la negoziazione avviene con una sola relazione bancaria svizzera presso Dukascopy Bank, attraverso la Swiss Crypto Exchange e con wallets supportati da un custode per criptovalute svizzero.

“L’integrazione di conti fiat con piattaforme di contrattazione per criptovalute in un unico ecosistema rappresenta un ulteriore passo avanti per l’esecuzione della nostra strategia ovvero un aumento dell’adozione e della liquidità per il Dukascoin. Siamo soddisfatti di aver trovato nella Swiss Crypto Exchange un partner affidabile regolamentato in Svizzera” ha commentato André Duka, fondatore e co-amministratore delegato di Dukascopy Bank.

“La nostra strategia è sempre stata quella di offrire un’infrastruttura di negoziazione ineccepibile tra valute fiat e cripto oltre che una piattaforma multilaterale non-discrezionale per le contrattazioni cripto verso cripto. Con quest’integrazione l’intera catena di valore avviene in un ecosistema unico e regolato in Svizzera: un conto bancario, un wallet personale e l’accesso ad una borsa per criptovalute” ha commentato Francesco Adiliberti, amministratore delegato di Swiss Crypto Exchange.
