WHO WE ARE

GENTWO Digital pioneered the concept of crypto securitization, where an individual off-balance sheet, issuance vehicle is established to hold digital assets and to issue conventional securities (Certificate/Note) with a Swiss ISIN to investors. This allows especially institutional investors to easily book crypto on their balance sheets via their normal stock broker. Therefore, they can conduct traditional audits and to use their traditional banking infrastructure - just like for all other of their investments.
