In the digital age, as the adoption of cryptocurrency has become rampant, there is a growing need for businesses to understand and efficiently manage their crypto assets on their balance sheet. With the shift towards different types of businesses exploring and integrating digital assets as part of their daily operations, the need for effective crypto treasury management is clearer than ever.

Why is Crypto Treasury Management Critical?

The main challenges in crypto treasury revolve around effectively managing liquidity, funding, various risks, and adapting to new regulations as they evolve. Cryptocurrencies and the industry itself can be notoriously volatile. Thus, businesses need robust mechanisms in place to mitigate potential risks as much as possible. This is emphasized by events like the collapse of Terra, FTX, and Signature Bank, which underscored the significance of treasury and risk management.

Liquidity and Cash Flow

The primary goal of treasury management is to ensure all of the firm’s obligations are met when they are due. Cash flow forecasting and balance sheet asset allocation are crucial keys to maintaining optimal liquidity. It is also important to have sound knowledge of all aspects of fund movements, from crypto/ fiat deposit methods to trade expiries/ redemptions, and banking turnaround times for various currencies.

Funding and Cost Analyses

While maintaining sufficient liquidity, it is vital to focus on ways to monetise and utilize assets effectively with the aim of expanding the balance sheet and working capital. This could include capturing yield via staking or accessing tokenized TradFi products, or leveraging balance sheet assets to help out different parts of the business. At the same time, running operational and trade cost analyses to manage and minimize costs.

Risk Management and Diversification

Counterparty, liquidity, market, compliance, and reputational risks all need to be taken into account when making decisions on when, where, and how balance sheet assets should be allocated and utilized. It is essential to consider both the upside and downside risks during the decision-making process. Thorough research should be done on the counterparties you will be facing for credit risks, assess accessibility to trade in and out of different assets and withdrawal methods, and lastly, diversify your assets where possible to reduce concentration risks and prevent funds from being locked up.
