London, November 27: Copper, the London-based custodian for digital assets, has expanded its Walled Garden infrastructure and is now connected to the top 15 exchanges – including: Coinbase, Deribit, OKEx, Bitstamp, Bitfinex*, Huobi, Binance, Bitmex, Kraken, Bittrex and HitBTC.
This gives Copper’s institutional customers access to a larger liquidity pool as the company’s trade and settlement volumes continue to increase 50% month-on-month.
Copper’s infrastructure creates a unique Walled Garden for each client, connecting crypto funds and major liquidity providers directly to their exchange accounts. Copper’s platform provides a single view of a client’s portfolio, while the inter-exchange custody eliminates the risk of internal fraud. Using APIs, client assets are transferred seamlessly inside the secure environment, supported by Copper’s multi-key cold storage, providing a safe off-exchange depository.
Exchanges must meet a threshold of security conditions before being eligible for integration, including permission-based API keys and whitelisting of wallet addresses, among others.
The news follows Copper announcing it has processed $500m in transactions in Q3 2019.
The company already provides digital asset safeguarding for multiple funds and investors operating a full range of investment strategies.
