Geneva and Zug, March 2024: Taurus, the leader in Europe for digital asset infrastructure for banks and regulated players, is delighted to announce a new chapter in its longstanding partnership with AMINA Bank. The crypto bank, a client and partner of Taurus since 2019, has signed an agreement to extend the strategic collaboration with Taurus and move to Taurus-PROTECT v4.

AMINA will be among the first subscribers to the Taurus-PROTECT v4 ecosystem, demonstrating a commitment to providing its clients with secure and advanced crypto product capabilities available on the market, including storage, staking, and NFT.

In 2019, AMINA obtained a banking licence from FINMA, a tier-1 regulator in Switzerland. Five years later, AMINA has successfully deployed its crypto-related services in multiple jurisdictions from its regulated hubs in Abu Dhabi, Hong Kong, and Switzerland. By extending its partnership with Taurus, AMINA can offer some of the most versatile and complete solutions in the digital asset industry.

The innovative Taurus-PROTECT v4 is a comprehensive platform covering many aspects of digital assets. Among others:

We are honoured to strengthen our strategic collaboration with AMINA. Most importantly, this collaboration will support AMINA in scaling high quality crypto-related services and digital asset solutions, while respecting all applicable regulatory requirements, and maintaining the most stringent security.”
