Guarda Wallet came to this conclusion after installing the online applications developed by ETN and ETCV.

First of all, the Digital Asset Vault service is aimed at providing services to large investors - banks, brokers and financial companies. They will not have to invest in infrastructure, since Vontobel has already created its own Hardware Security Module (HSM) system. The Swiss authorities are quite loyal to cryptocurrencies, and already in 2018 they allowed the functioning of the Bitcoin ETF fund.
