Providing the safest place for the custody of cash and other assets.
Securing the highest level of regulatory compliance.
Koine is an e-money and payment institution, authorised by the FCA as an EMD Agent. Banking license application in process.
We provide full visibility of the same data we share with our regulator, the Financial Conduct Authority (UK). We provide real-time information about our reserves, liquidity and the assets that are backing our issued digital tokens. We will publish regular reports from our internal and external auditors and will publish a quarterly risk statement approved by our independent directors.
We will achieve new levels of compliance based on continuous KYC, active AML monitoring of all digital money flows and dynamic risk management techniques. We are supportive of tax collection by the state and abide by capital controls imposed by monetary authorities. We will freeze any accounts engaged in suspicious activity and report to authorities. We respect our clients' right to privacy and will only share your data where required by law.
Our systems are built and operated by experienced professionals used to running market-critical services. By design, and through using new systems, our services are inherently more secure than existing banking systems. Whilst our clients remain responsible for the management of their account access, we offer solutions to manage loss of access, theft and erroneous transfers.
Utilitarian pricing of money transfers, almost instantly, every hour of every day. We don’t have “banking hours”. FX can be integrated into transactions at wholesale market rates. Interest is paid/charged on a daily basis. For retail clients, we offer automated dispute resolution and recovery for erroneous payments, provided you notify us within a timely manner. Historical transaction records always available, immutable and non-disputable.
Minting digital fiat & synthetics
We issue fixed value digital tokens secured against assets or currency. These digital tokens can be used for payments, trading or settlement for goods, services and financial instruments.
Prime brokerage platform
We offer a prime brokerage platform incorporating custody, transaction execution, settlement and payment for crypto-exchanges. We provide a professional end-to-end service for brokers and institutional investors. We do not offer credit or margin trading facilities directly.
Where our clients are managing payment or trading platforms we offer the option of conducting KYC and AML on your behalf to both avoid duplication and reduce compliance costs.

We provide an integrated custody service for crypto-assets to funds and wealth managers. Minimum of $5m. Our custody service is directly integrated with a number of crypto-exchanges to facilitate safe trading practises with instant settlement. Your assets are never put at risk.
