Tata hopes the platform can help financial institutions and investment firms offer their clients the ability to send payments in virtual assets and benefit from lower transaction fees and quicker access to liquidity.

The Global Head at Quartz, Vivekanand Ramgopal, says digital assets and stablecoins "are poised to become viable alternate avenues for investments, hedging and portfolio diversification."

"Progressive financial institutions are looking to provide these options to their clientele. We are excited to offer them our robust, secure and scalable solution for trading, storing and transfer of these assets," Vivekanand added.
