Our Reserves

BTC Markets uses a cold wallet and hot wallet system to secure and manage our clients' cryptocurrency reserves. We maintain a full reserve and process reconciliations on a per transaction basis. This gives us and our clients confidence that the funds shown in their accounts match with what is really in our bank and cold wallets. Our encrypted cold wallet storage is off-site in multiple locations. Each location is physically secure and physically diverse.

Our wallet management system ensures we are not susceptible to the well-documented transaction malleability issue.

Our clients may confidently entrust their cryptocurrency with us; however, our philosophy is that clients should manage and safely secure their own funds. This philosophy is inherent to the nature of peer-to-peer cryptocurrencies. We believe cryptocurrency storage reserves should not be reliant upon a single entity, such as a bank, exchange or third party wallet management system.
