SEBA Bank, a Swiss crypto-focused banking services provider, announced on Thursday that it has added support for Aave (AAVE) and Chainlink (LINK) tokens as part of the expansion of its offering in decentralized finance (DeFi) cryptos. According to the press release, both AAVE and LINK will be managed through SEBA’s entire suite, including investment, custody, and trading.
With the integration of the DeFi tokens, the banking services provider is now offering such cryptos at an institutional-grade level. As of press time, SEBA Bank has listed USD Coin (USDC), Uniswap (UNI), Yearn.finance (YFI), and Synthetix (SNX). “Investor interest in digital assets is growing rapidly, and many want to go beyond Bitcoin. SEBA Bank offers investors bespoke access to the return drivers and diversification benefits of this new asset class. We are pleased to provide our expertise in digital assets to build exposure in this new asset class,” Alistair Heggie, COO of SEBA Bank, stated in the announcement.
The bank also highlighted that these tokens would be secured on cold storage that was expanded to include ERC-20 tokens, as SEBA Bank currently supports Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH).
