Who We Are.

CoinRegTech is a provider of regulatory technology to the digital asset and virtual currency marketplace.  CoinRegTech offers a digital asset trade repository that records transactions and confirms ownership.  This service is essential to ensure market integrity, which is a crucial element for growth in the digital asset marketplace.

What We Do.

The Problem

A central issue for all financial instruments is the proper, timely and transparent record of ownership.  This is particularly problematic for off-chain transactions in digital assets.  These transactions do not provide a public and immutable record of investor ownership.

Virtual currency was deemed a commodity under the Commodity Exchange Act and digital assets were deemed securities by the Securities and Exchange Commission.  As such, all persons and entities dealing in digital asset securities or virtual currencies are subject to CFTC and/ or SEC oversight.  

Our Solution

CoinRegTech provides necessary market infrastructure for a fair and efficient marketplace.  Our platform verifies the ownership of virtual currency and digital assets.   The platform is designed to meet applicable regulations and support the compliance needs of market participants.

CoinRegTech operates independently from execution platforms, custodians, and market participants.
