The U.K. exchange, called Coinfloor, is one of the first to try to prove it is solvent by publishing a list of accounts and balances...encoded in a way that account holders can identify their own accounts.
The company, which launched last year, is partnering with a Financial Conduct Authority-regulated trading firm to help financial institutions meet bulk orders for the digital currency.
Mark Lamb, explains the platform aims to become the first publicly auditable bitcoin exchange and has already taken measures to be compliant with regulations.
As well as accounting know how, these new players will bring real tech expertise, and a desire to play by the rules.
The company is focussed first and foremost on the security of the bitcoins on the platform. It is also employing full electronic AML and KYC procedures and engaging with the UK's Financial Conduct Authority and Europe's Payment Services Regulations.
One of the reasons we were keen to partner with Coinfloor is because from the very start they have been committed to rigorous KYC/AML electronic and manual checks, and would be prepared if the UK FCA and HMRC ever decided to regulate this space.
The firm promises to provide a high-frequency trading platform that uses secure, state-of-the-art technology.
