What is Protego's view of regulation of cryptocurrencies?

Does Protego trade against its clients?

Protego Trust Bank has spent the last five years working with both state and federal regulators, and building the necessary digital asset custody, trading, lending and core banking systems to enable the bank to operate in a safe and sound manner and meet the extraordinarily high standards of the most demanding institutional clients in the world. We chose to get it done right rather than done quickly.
