Our Commitment to Security

  • Guarding Against Misuse of Insider Access

Securing Your Assets Is Our #1 Priority

Your Assets Are in Good Company

We have partnered up with an independent fiduciary and custodian that is licensed to custody your digital assets in trust on your behalf.
Cold Wallet

Our Cold Storage system provides two tiers of offline storage dubbed “cold” and “cryo” (short for “cryogenic”) for improved security and redundancy.

  • We use HSMs that have achieved a rating of FIPS PUB 140-2 Level 3 (or higher).

  • All cold and cryo private keys are generated, stored and managed onboard our HSMs for the lifetime of the key.

  • We use Multi-Signature technology (“Multi-Sig”) to provide both security against attacks and tolerance for losing access to a key or facility, eliminating single points of failure.

  • All HSMs are stored in guarded, monitored and access-controlled facilities that are geographically distributed.

  • All fund transfers require the coordinated actions of multiple employees (i.e., all facilities are “no-lone zones”).

Hot Wallet

Our Cold Storage system provides two tiers of offline storage dubbed “cold” and “cryo” (short for “cryogenic”) for improved security and redundancy.

  • Our Hot Wallet environment is hosted on Amazon Web Services (“AWS”). AWS has a proven track record for physical security and internal controls. More information can be found here.

  • Tiered access-controls are applied to our production environment to restrict access to employees based on role, following the principle of least-privilege.

  • Administrative access to our production environment requires multi-factor authentication.

  • Hot Wallet key management is rooted in hardware security modules (“HSMs”). We use the hosted CloudHSM service provided by AWS, which offers dedicated HSMs within the AWS cloud.

  • The specific hardware used by CloudHSM has been evaluated according to federal information processing standard publication 140-2 (“FIPS PUB 140-2”) and achieved a rating of Level 2.
