Komainu, a cryptocurrency custody firm co-created by CoinShares, Ledger, and Nomura, has received regulatory approval from the U.K. Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) to register as a custodian wallet provider. This approval allows Komainu to offer crypto custody services in the U.K., including collateral management services through its Komainu Connect platform. The company sees the U.K. as an important hub for financial technology and innovation. This regulatory approval follows Komainu’s operating license from Dubai’s Virtual Asset Regulatory Authority in August 2023 and its regulation by the Jersey Financial Services Commission. Komainu has also made an agreement with U.K. authorities to securely store digital assets seized during investigations.
