Hacken, an ecosystem of white-hat hackers and a bug bounty marketplace with a focus on blockchain security, and Jibrel Network, the first protocol with built-in regulatory compliance that allows anyone to put traditional assets like currencies, bonds and other financial instruments standard ERC-20 tokens on the Ethereum blockchain, announce their cooperation.
Talal Tabbaa, Jibrel’s Co-Founder and Business Development Lead, says: “Digital Financial assets is a sensitive field that requires the highest levels of cyber protection.
