It will be a quiet week for blockchain enthusiasts with no big events going off. That the time to relax and enjoy the improving weather, and rest assured that the Boston Blockchain Association has big plans for upcoming events over the summer. Let’s make it the Summer of Blockchain.
We did have some exciting news in the past week. BankProv is partnering with Anchorage to offer financing for Ethereum-backed lines of credit. This partnership allows Anchorage to deliver quality loan products to their institutional clients backed by Ethereum—the first of its kind in the industry. BankProv and Anchorage have found alignment in their mutual undertaking to safely enable forward-thinking companies and investors to access the value of this new asset class and answer the market’s need for more widely accessible USD financing for crypto-heavy borrowers.
