Balance Custody

Institutional grade storage for digital assets.

Your digital assets are safe with us. Our reserves and inventory are stored next to yours. We wouldn’t ask you to put your assets where we wouldn’t put ours. Strict internal controls and policies protect your assets against external threats, human error, and misuse of insider access.
Military Grade Security
  • The assets are stored in Deep Cold Storage in secure vaults distributed across multiple locations in North America.
  • We use HSMs that have achieved a rating of FIPS 140-2 Level 3 or higher. True military grade security.
  • Our HSMs are stored in guarded, monitored, and access-controlled facilities that are geographically distributed.
  • All private keys are generated, stored and managed offline, onboard our Hardware Security Modules (HSMs), for the lifetime of the key.
  • All transaction signing happens offline, onboard our HSMs.
  • Hardware is sourced from diverse manufacturers to guard against supply-chain risks.

Transparency is at our core.

We audit our policies and controls at regular intervals and publish the reports. You get access to a set of tools to control and audit each individual asset in realtime on its native chain.
Internal Controls
  • Our co-founders are unable to individually transfer funds out of the Deep Cold Storage.
  • All employees undergo criminal and credit background checks, and are subject to ongoing background checks throughout their employment.
  • Administrative access to our production environment requires multi-factor authentication. No remote access is permitted.
  • Our offices do not store or contain anything of value.
  • All transfers require the coordinated actions of multiple employees and multiple signatories.
  • Tiered access-controls are applied to our production environment, and restrict employee access based on role, following the principle of least-privilege.
  • Our insurance policy protects us from employee negligence or clerical errors.

How can it be both secure and cheap?

It’s in the technology. That’s what we’re good at. Our custody solution is built on top of what we call a Digital Asset Cache™. Think of it as a treasure chest full of digital coins, buried in the blockchain. You have full control of your assets.
A Digital Asset Cache:
  • is a self-managed collection of digital wallets, across multiple blockchains;
  • can be created, transacted, and liquidated as one single unit;
  • is a Layer 2 protocol, similar in that regard to the Lightning Network;
  • is cutting edge proprietary technology.
Let’s work together.
Institutional grade storage for your digital assets is a phone call away.
