Gibraltar-based Valereum Blockchain recently announced the acquisition of Juno Group, a company that provides services in the establishment and administration of trusts, money management and enterprise creation in Gibraltar.
Juno, a member firm of the Gibraltar Stock Exchange is licensed by the Gibraltar Financial Services Commission as a collective investment scheme administrator (fund administrator) and has three areas of licensed operation: the management of trusts and similar entities, the administration of cash for a range of activities, including both fiat and cryptocurrency transactions and the incorporation and management of businesses in Gibraltar and other countries around the world.
The agreement is an important step toward creating a regulated link between fiat and crypto world, which complements Valereum’s work with the Gibraltar Stock Exchange (GSX) in Gibraltar.
