Onchain Custodian Delivers Enhanced Wallet Management with the support of IBM

Across the world and across every industry, increasingly more ecosystems are leveraging blockchain to deliver innovative new business models and disrupt traditional approaches as a new era of mainstream adoption approaches. With companies moving from blockchain experimentation to implementation, an award winning fintech and a leading technology platform have come together to deliver optimized digital asset management services.

On March 3, 2020, working with IBM, Onchain Custodian, the Singapore-based absolute safe for digital asset custody, released an optimized version of the latter’s SAFE™ platform. As a digital asset custody platform, SAFE™ integrates the tamper-resistant nature of IBM Cloud™ Hyper Protect Crypto Services to deliver optimized security, operational efficiency, and risk management. Possessing the industry’s first and only FIPS 140-2 Level 4  certified Hardware Security Module (HSM) available in the public cloud, the IBM Cloud™ Hyper Protect Crypto Services ensures that only Onchain Custodian-- responding to an authenticated customer instruction-- can have access to keys. Through its upgraded SAFE™ platform, Onchain Custodian has further bolstered its digital asset management services as well as its position as a leading third-party custodian. 

Da Hongfei, Onchain Custodian's Chair of the Board, noted that, "Since our debut, we have been relentlessly growing our customer base and open finance service offering with our curated partners. With our enhanced custody solution now live, Onchain Custodian is ready to expand further. We are looking for strategical investors to accelerate our scaling."

With mainstream adoption accelerating, independent third-party digital asset custody has become an essential piece of infrastructure that many experts consider critical for the long-term sustainability of digital assets and cryptocurrencies. With its upgrade, Onchain’s SAFE™ platform will allow digital asset exchanges, fund managers, and projects, among others, to outsource partially or fully the safe hosting of their wallets, while securely automating transaction flows based on threshold and other security measures. By offering dedicated Private Key protection for both institutional and retail private investors while also delivering enhanced operational efficiency, Onchain Custodian empowers customers to focus on growing their core businesses.
