Singapore-based Rakkar, a leading digital asset custodian backed by SCB 10X, the venture arm of the Siam Commercial Bank, has announced a strategic partnership with DigiFT, a pioneer in regulated exchanges for real-world assets (RWA) on the blockchain.

DigiFT holds a crucial advantage - a Capital Markets Services (CMS) license and Recognised Market Operator (RMO) designation from the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS). This makes it the first regulated exchange on a public blockchain dedicated to RWAs. By combining Rakkar's top-notch custody services with DigiFT's groundbreaking exchange, the partnership aims to establish a robust ecosystem for institutions to confidently enter the world of digital assets.

Rakkar's secure custody solutions will safeguard tokenized real-world assets like DigiFT's USD treasury bills, bank bonds, and money market funds. This ensures maximum asset security and improves capital efficiency for institutions.
