Copper’s award-winning custody solution.

Our unique security model rests on four foundational pillars, each working in tandem to eliminate any single point of failure.

Each vault is controlled through three individual entities.

Each vault is controlled through three individual entities.

Shards are created in isolation and managed by three separate entities: Client, Copper and a Trusted Third Party.

Funds are stored in segregated vaults.

Keep your funds in segregated vaults at the blockchain level for 60+ networks and 600+ digital assets.

2 of 3 quorum.

2 of 3 quorum.

A 2 of 3 quorum is required for signing asset transfers from the vaults, adding a natural redundancy layer into the architecture.

No private key is ever created.

At no point is the private key generated or assembled for transaction signing.

Eliminating single points of failure.

Maximum flexibility for custody.

Each shard can be stored either offline or online. This setup empowers clients to customise their vault settings, by selecting from cold, warm, and hot vaults for each asset, ensuring maximum flexibility.

Transactions from hot wallets are signed automatically online and processed instantaneously. In contrast, cold wallet transactions require signing from the client-side user and a Copper account manager. With Copper's dedicated client services team available 24/7/365, even cold vault transactions are executed in minutes, anytime.

Speed without compromising security.

Configure roles for your team members to enforce enhanced security measures.

Set user-specific transaction amounts and time limits, applicable either to all accounts or select accounts.

Establish flexible approval workflows, stipulating the required number of approvals and designating approvers.
