Digital Assets Custody: The Key to Institutional Adoption

digital assets custody icon

The importance of digital asset custody has increased significantly in the evolving digital asset landscape, with the need to instill confidence in various investor groups such as institutional investors, financial institutions, and general investors. Digital asset custodians play a critical role in achieving this goal.

The increasing interest in digital assets has led to the growth of custody options, with various types of custody options emerging in the market. The main utility of cryptocurrency custody solutions lies in the safekeeping of cryptocurrency assets, especially given the sensitivity and importance of the private key and the numerous reported hacks and thefts of coins.

The SEC sets eyes on top crypto custodians

It appears the SEC wishes to regulate crypto exchanges that provide custody services, in particular, clients with high net worth, such as hedge funds managers. This may have a large impact on crypto custody programs or fiat custodians like banks that choose to hold clients’ crypto assets. The amendments do not target crypto companies specifically, but SEC Chair Gary Gensler mentioned in a statement that “not all crypto platforms that claim to custody client assets are qualified custodians.”

Exploring the versatility of the Polkadot blockchain

Polkadot blockchain cryptocurrency

Polkadot is a platform that allows multiple blockchains to operate together as a single network. It accomplishes this through the unique interoperability design, which allows for seamless transfer of data and assets between different blockchains.

Polkadot has a flexible and customizable architecture. It’s built on a modular framework that allows developers to create blockchains that are optimized for specific use cases. This makes Polkadot viable for a wide range of applications, from DeFi to crypto gaming to supply chain management. You may also have heard of RockX, a blockchain API service provider that was built on Polkadot.

Avax VS Ethereum – getting to know the Ethereum rival

Avalanche is a decentralized platform built to enable developers to create and deploy dApps (decentralized applications). Similar to many leading blockchains, including Binance Smart Chain, Avalanche was designed to address the scalability issues and high costs of Ethereum.

Avalanche was created by Ava Labs, a company founded by computer scientist Emin Gün Sirer. Its whitepaper was published in 2018 and the Mainnet officially launched in 2020. The aim was to provide high throughput while maintaining low latency and interoperability for all decentralized applications.

The importance of regulations in choosing a qualified crypto custodian

Regulations come in a variety of measures but are put in place to protect users and ensure safe and secure operations by custodians. When a crypto custodian is regulated, it is subject to specific rules and comply with the law of the region and all regions by whom the regulations are imposed. Some of them may include compliance on conflict of interest and AML (anti-money laundering). It’s helpful to obtain a fair understanding of these regulations before signing up to a company.

Binance Smart Chain – a quick guide to the EVM powerhouse

Binance Smart Chain has EVM compatibility, so developers can use the same programming languages to build decentralized applications on Ethereum, such as Solidity, and tools like Remix and Truffle. This makes dApps migration fast and easy.

As a result, Binance Smart Chain has a thriving ecosystem of dApps. Some of the most popular decentralized applications you may have heard of, such as Pancakeswap, were built on BSC. There’s also a host of wallets, explorers and tools that help users better interact with Binance Smart Chain.

Web3, blockchain and dApps – Understanding the differences

web3, blockchain, dapps

Web3 aims to eliminate the central authority of any platform. Instead, a network of computers share the hosting responsibility. This reduces vulnerability and makes it so data only gets shared to authorized users.

Since there’s no centralized server, users will not face the risk of service denial or censorship. On the flipside of that, however, a lack of moderation also means harmful materials and content can run wild. Free range propaganda or worse could exist without repercussions, but putting a fence around it would defeat the purpose of decentralizing in the first place.

Best Crypto Custodians to Restore the Faith of Crypto Users in 2023

Crypto custodians have been playing a critical role in safeguarding digital assets and their services may have become even more important in today’s financial climate. Utilizing technologies, such as MPC (multiparty computation) and segregated asset storages, custodians keep your property outside the reach of external parties. Unlike centralized platforms, crypto custodians are designed to have no single point of failure, making them extremely difficult to attack.

What are dApps? Everything you need to know


Unlike traditional applications, which rely on a central authority (often called the server), dApps operate on a distributed network of computers, a.k.a the blockchain.

While there are many blockchains that run dApps, a majority of them are Ethereum-based. If you happen to come across a dApp that’s been hyped up in the community, it likely belongs on Ethereum.

3 New Year’s Crypto Resolutions You May Consider for 2023

2022 may have been a wild ride. But you know what’s wilder? Going into 2023 without resolutions.

You may have very specific goals and even plans to achieve them, but resolutions are a broader concept. They can sometimes change our disposition or even help develop a vision. For example, you may resolve to put an end to dip-buying excessively (though we all know you won’t.)

If you’re not sure what your crypto resolutions are, here are some you may consider implementing into your 2023 journey.

Crypto Custody for Corporates – How Corporations Should Protect Digital Assets

The reality is benefits don’t always come without substantial risks. Especially when it comes to something with many inherent variables like crypto.

Security is a major concern. You can store your coins in self custody wallets and crypto exchanges, but they can only do so much. Large scale operations require a much denser layer of protection. This is one of the many reasons crypto custody is essential to securing a company’s digital assets.

What is Polygon and Why is It Important to Ethereum?

Polygon uses the same programming language as Ethereum but it doesn’t duplicate the network. It instead acts as a fast lane to reduce traffic on the mainnet and lower transaction costs. Think of it like a highway connected to the mainstreet by an exit ramp.

The Polygon mainnet is built into your Atato workspace and is always available for quick access. Simply log into your Atato app and select the network.
