Once authorized, Cardano Foundation will provide unique market access to Lykke to push its products on the Cardano blockchain. 

On the other hand, Lykke Corp is planning to increase its influence in the blockchain space through several initiatives. These include Lykke blockchain business services, LyCI digital assets index and a think tank that serves as a fundraiser for blockchain-based solutions.

Lykke Corp’s Founder and CEO Richard Olsen stated that Cardano has all the “critical attributes” that make it an ideal blockchain choice for banks. These attributes include formal methods, scalability and open-source code.
