Komainu, the cryptocurrency custody joint venture between Nomura, Ledger, and CoinShares, is offering institutional clients a regulated and segregated collateral management product called Komainu Connect. The offering allows clients to deploy their digital assets in collateralization scenarios while remaining in segregated custody and verifiable on chain. Komainu's head of strategy, Sebastian Widmann, said that the focus of Komainu from day one was to stay in the custodial space and not take counterparty risk offering trading or lending services. The collateral management service allows clients to have specific wallets within Komainu with visibility to third-party liquidity providers and exchanges for trading on venue, with Komainu handling the settlement. Komainu has also scaled up its staking service to coincide with the much-anticipated Ethereum Shanghai hard fork on April 12.
