Digital Asset Custody for Institutions: Validator Spotlight on Hex Trust

3 min readMay 11, 2022


hashport is excited to announce Hex Trust as the next validator to be featured in our spotlight series. Hex Trust is a fully licensed institutional digital asset custodian. They have seen incredible growth recently; raising $88M during the Series B funding round co-led by Animoca Brands — one of the hashport validators.

Within the hashport ecosystem, Hex Trust contributes to the success of the network as a validator, running one of the 9 validating nodes alongside other industry-leading organisations Polygon, Animoca Brands, the HBAR Foundation, Calaxy, Worldpay by FIS, MakerDAO, BCW, and LimeChain. Hex Trust represents the security and custodial sector of the DLT industry within our validator swarm. In architecting hashport, great care was taken to ensure that a diverse group of industry-leading organisations was gathered in order to create a high level of functional trust in the platform.

As the blockchain-DLT industry continues to grow at an incredible pace with record numbers in nearly every important category; especially Total Value Locked, the security and custody of digital assets is one of the most foundational pillars to its success. Through Hex Trust’s main platform, Hex Safe, financial institutions and organisations can safeguard their investments, participate in DeFi, and integrate digital assets into their business operations using institutional-grade infrastructure.

From late May to June, hashport and Hex Trust will collaborate on an exclusive video with Alessio Quaglini and, through Q&A segments, give each respective community the opportunity to engage on how NFT custody and DLT interoperability contribute to the growth of Web 3.0.

Stay tuned on our social channels: Twitter and LinkedIn, where more details of these upcoming panel discussions will be announced shortly.
