What is Binance Custody?
While traditional financial institutions are required by law to act as custodians, cryptocurrencies have allowed individuals to act as their own bank and avoid counterparty risk. Institutional investors, on the other hand, often use third-party escrow services to preserve their wealth rather than control their assets themselves, due to the prevalence of crime in the cryptocurrency business. Clients’ private keys are stored by crypto custodians, who typically provide insurance on the crypto assets they manage. Binance Custody plans to complete its independent SOC 2 Type 2 exam by the end of the year to prove its operational security. Binance distributes control over client cash through secure multi-party calculation (MPC). For secure storage, it employs its certified wallet solution.
