The Bitcoin Suisse Vault is the proprietary custody solution for crypto assets of the Bitcoin Suisse Group*. As part of its ongoing commitment to quality and security, the technology and processes involved in the Bitcoin Suisse Vault solution were audited by three renowned audit and technology firms: An ISAE 3402 Type 1 audit, covering key generation and management, transaction and authorization flow as well as change and business continuity management, was carried out by PwC**. An additional ISAE 3402 Type 2 report was issued by Grant Thornton covering key management processes***. A code review was conducted by Zühlke. The Bitcoin Suisse Vault stores crypto assets in excess of $1 billion in a secure, fully redundant cold storage solution.
