Virtuse Enhances Custody Security with Unchain Capital Integration

One of our top priorities has always been to bring bank-level-security security to Virtuse. That is why we’re excited to announce the integration to Unchained Capital.

Collaborative custody benefits

Through Unchain collaborative custody, Virtuse delivers solutions that raise the bar for Bitcoin security.

For the Bitcoin held in cold storage, Virtuse controls 2-of-3 keys, and Unchained holds 1-of-3 keys, with Virtuse able to rely on Unchained as a backup key holder.

Virtuse’s keys are also geographically distributed to improve security and financial controls via Unchained’s private application.

99% of client funds in cold storage

Virtuse holds more than 99% of the assets offline in cold storage. Unchain Capital removes counterparty risk and entirely solves the custody of Bitcoin with its best-in-class multi-signature technology. 

“The US and EU governments are doing everything they can to devalue their currencies and wreck savers’ wealth all over the world. 80% of all US dollars in existence were printed during the last ten years, and fiat currencies will likely lose 90% of their value in the following years. With Unchained custody, we can now accelerate the transition of savers to the Bitcoin monetary system and protect their wealth fiat devaluation,” said Ras Vasilisin, founder and CEO of Virtuse.

Enhanced Wealth and Business Services

Our Wealth Services provides private clients and businesses with an accessible application to secure their private keys with Unchain solutions.

Private clients and businesses now have a custody option that removes counterparty risk, eliminates single points of failure, and allows multiple organization members to collaborate efficiently.
