Zug, 27 June 2018

ZUG, Switzerland, 27 June 2018 Bitcoin Suisse announces the launch of Swiss Crypto Vault, a joint venture with Swiss Gold Safe. Swiss Crypto Vault, which went live today, offers the best-in-market solution for hyper secure storage of crypto assets to institutions, corporations and high-net-worth individuals (HNWI). The solution features physical protection through deep underground storage, state-of-the-art encryption, multi-signing authorization processes and many more security features. Blockchain technology and the crypto assets market are evolving at a rapid pace. Technological change, new business models and increased asset prices are creating the need for advanced levels of secure storage for crypto assets. To date, most crypto asset holders store their private keys for signing transactions individually or using less-than-ideal set-ups. This exposes them to the risk of loss, theft, destruction or simple negligence when handling storage and transactions. Swiss Crypto Vault addresses these problems with its proprietary, next-generation crypto storage solution, developed and built over the past 18 months. Backed by the expertise of the market leaders Bitcoin Suisse and Swiss Gold Safe, it allows institutional and HNWI investors to store crypto assets in a hyper secure and yet user friendly way, based on banking-grade hardware, located in Swiss military-grade bunkers. The best-in-class solution features the highest physical protection standards, state-of-the-art encryption as well as individualized and customized multi-signing authorization, time delays and other security measures. Users can initiate transactions starting the withdrawal and approval process at any time and from anywhere via the Swiss Crypto Vault web portal. Niklas Nikolajsen, Chairman of Bitcoin Suisse and Chairman of Swiss Crypto Vault, said: “Swiss Crypto Vault addresses the need and demand among existing and future crypto asset holders for audited and banking-grade hyper-secure storage of digital assets, with a unique and customizable solution for even the most demanding investors. The current offering is for Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ether, Litecoin, Bitcoin Gold and all ERC20/223 tokens, but more crypto assets will continue to be added on an ongoing basis.” The hyper-secure storage solution will be reviewed regularly by PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) Switzerland. PwC will also regularly (or on request) compare the amounts of stored crypto assets with the balance on the respective public address. The key generation process was overseen by independent third parties, and a review of the key generation code was performed by Zühlke.
