Solarisbank launches Blockchain Factory to connect the worlds of banking and blockchain
Solarisbank, a Berlin based fintech firm that provides Banking-as-a-Platform services has expanded its services and introduced a new banking service plan known as the ‘solarisBank Blockchain Factory’. solaris Blockchain Factory will assist to build a technological and regulatory bridge that will directly or indirectly connect the worlds of banking and blockchain.
The new offering will pose the full German banking license holder, solarisBank as a specialised infrastructure partner of choice for cryptocurrency and blockchain companies.
What’s the CEO saying?
“For more than two years, solarisBank has made contextual banking possible – modern financial services are integrated via interfaces (APIs) in the existing range of services for companies and made available to customers whenever and wherever they are needed. Services offered by the ‘solarisBank Blockchain Factory’ in the field of blockchain and cryptocurrency are the next strategic step”, said Roland Folz, CEO of solarisBank. “There is high demand from the blockchain world for a licensed partner that forms the technological and regulatory bridge to traditional banking – as a technology company with a banking licence we are the natural partner.”
To ease out the tradings in fiat currencies, services will be made accessible for the global cryptocurrency market. In order to cater its services to international traders, solarisBank is striking a partnership with vPE Bank. Additional services for digital banking and debit cards for blockchain companies are currently being integrated by other corporate customers. Cryptocurrency wallets and bank accounts can therefore, be merged in a unified service offering. Peter Grosskopf, CTO of solarisBank commented: “The fiat world is not about to dissolve. We are moving towards a hybrid future, in which the blockchain world still has to prove itself. However, we see the disruptive power of these business models and we want to help shape the future of this industry.”
“It has always been the role of banks to safeguard customer assets in a trustworthy manner. Even in an age of decentralisation driven by blockchain technology, banks still need to take on this role. We provide the infrastructure which connects traditional banking with modern, digital services,” he added.
