Athena Bitcoin is a pioneering online brokerage platform that combines rigorous ethical and financial standards with the most advanced technologies. The company acts as a custodian for the digital assets of its clients, who trust Athena with their cryptocurrencies and digital financial assets. Athena acts as a fiduciary, safeguarding client funds and protecting client privacy as best it can in an unregulated industry where trust is earned by reputation.
The company is fully compliant with all applicable international and domestic laws and regulations. Athena Bitcoin has never been the target of any regulatory investigations or enforcement actions. An independent accounting firm audits Athena annually to verify that the company has enough capital to cover the value of its customers’ digital assets on its books.
The Athena Bitcoin token (ATB) will be the first “utility” token launched on the Stellar blockchain. A utility token is a digital asset that can be used to obtain a product or service in the real world. Using an asset-backed token is an excellent way to improve liquidity and incentivize early adopter participation in a network. In many ways, this differs from how traditional tokens are issued, which are typically sold for speculative investment.
