Bitcoin and other digital assets present serious security challenges, especially within a financial institution. Over $1.7 billion in crypto was stolen in 2018 alone, and there is no “undo button” to recover lost funds. Learn how to implement the security controls necessary to handle digital assets safely.
Base Zero is a cryptocurrency security company helping financial institutions to safely self-custody client crypto assets. The product is a web app combined with a set of handheld signer devices. The devices are custom hardware developed by Base Zero. The web app and the devices are used together to keep crypto assets secure. It’s priced as a monthly service.
