NEAR Foundation has announced its integration with Binance Custody, an institutional-grade digital asset custody solution.

With the integration, institutional users will be able to secure their NEAR assets and other NEP-141 compatible tokens with Binance Custody. Additionally, the integration makes it possible for Binance Custody to offer future support for any NEP-141-compliant tokens from NEAR-based projects.

Simply put, NEP-141 is a set of guidelines that governs how tokens on NEAR can function. It is an improvement over the previous NEP-21 standard since it is less complicated for users and developers, as well as more affordable and effective.

Binance Custody, launched in December 2021, is an independent, compliant and audited custodial solution that currently supports over 230 digital assets.

As reported by U.Today, Binance Custody announced support for Shiba Inu (SHIB), Audius (AUDIO), Perpetual Protocol (PERP), SKALE Network (SKL) and Injective (INJ) way back in February.
