Digital Assets in Capital Markets: The Challenge of Safe Custody

Unbound Security & Archax present "Digital Assets in Capital Markets: The Challenge of Safe Custody"

 

Tokenizing traditional assets is fascinating in the post-trade space, as blockchain can remove friction and intermediaries, whilst streamlining processes, improving efficiency and reducing costs – and delivering the potential of real-time, instantaneous settlement.

But with digitization on blockchain comes certain challenges too – particularly around custody, where there have been numerous well-reported security breaches of crypto exchanges, with keys and assets stolen.

At this invite-only event, Professor Yehuda Lindell, CEO & Co-founder of Unbound Security, explored the limitations of current hot and cold wallet custody solutions, as well as explain how the latest revolutionary breakthroughs in mathematics around Multiparty Computation (MPC) can allow keys to be secured without ever being exposed, thus ensuring digital assets are safe – anytime, anywhere.

Used by established players, as well as by innovative start-ups such as Archax, for its forthcoming institutional digital asset exchange – Unbound’s MPC solution frees you from the burden of hardware, whilst delivering better security.

Key areas that covered at this event include:

  • Why safe crypto custody has been such an issue historically
  • The limitations of current hot/warm wallet solutions
  • Cold storage – safe, but impractical
