Network Participation


As many funds act as a fiduciary to their investors, earning rewards through Delegated Proof of Stake (staking) activities has always been difficult due to risk. As the first custodian to offer staking from safe, offline storage of assets, Krypto-Trade Custody changes this calculus.

Governance: Coming soon

Much like Krypto-Trade Custody is enabling safe staking for the first time, participating in governance activities like voting on protocol measures is now possible while assets kept offline. We’re excited about all of the interesting ways we’ll be able to start surfacing governance opportunities directly in-app for our customers.
