DeFi Technologies Inc., a crypto native technology company that pioneers the convergence of traditional capital markets with the world of decentralized finance (DeFi), is pleased to announce the collaboration of its subsidiary Valour Inc. and Bitcoin Suisse AG aimed at the issuance of Exchange Traded Products (“ETPs”) backed by physical digital assets.

The collaboration would leverage Valour’s ABS issuance platform, its operational know-how in the ETP domain, and established marketing and sales distribution channels. Simultaneously, it would benefit from Bitcoin Suisse’s well established brand and longstanding experience in the crypto sector within Switzerland and internationally.
“The collaboration signifies an exciting development in the digital assets space,” said Olivier Roussy Newton, CEO of DeFi Technologies & Director of Valour. “The combination of our issuance platform and operational expertise in the ETP market, with Bitcoin Suisse’s impressive track record, high-quality service, and strong brand recognition as our established partner, will contribute to creating more robust and diversified investment opportunities for investors.”
Dr. Dirk Klee, CEO of Bitcoin Suisse, added “We are excited to cooperate with Valour and to provide them with our expertise to create leading crypto investments for professional and institutional partners. Valour is a trusted and established partner with a high-performing team that places equal value on security, reliable access to digital assets and transparency as Bitcoin Suisse does. For us, this partnership represents an important step towards becoming the leading crypto investment partner in Switzerland and other target markets.”
