Before getting into the topic of solving the crypto custody problems, we will discuss the custody of assets in exchanges.
What is Custody?
Custody in the terms of financial sector means that “It is the service provided by the company who safeguards the user funds and update the details of the balance to the users in the regular interval.
For example, in the cryptocurrency market, when A trades 10 bitcoins to B, A and B don’t meet and transact directly (B giving fiat currency to A). In this case, they both have a custodian(bitcoin trading site), which takes care of managing their accounts in fiat and crypto, and updates their respective balances with the new transaction.
Problems in cryptocurrency exchanges:
Fiat and Crypto custody:
All over the world, only some of the exchanges are accepting the fiat currency deposit and withdrawals and maintain them as a custody itself. This deposit and withdrawal are more or less contained slow by lengthy transaction time, fees and other factors. Meanwhile, this is good for small investors who are ready to invest. In the case of institutional investors, they are the biggest players in the market who are willing to invest a huge sum of money in crypto. Hence, they ensure that how their money is stored and safeguarded. But in the traditional finance sectors like stock, the deposits are withheld by the banks to ensure the safety of funds which is unavailable in crypto exchanges. Instead, the exchanges take control over the user funds in deposits and withdrawals.
How to solve the custody problems in crypto exchange platforms?
Innovation and ripping out the problems in the area of cryptocurrency market is the aim for most of the solutions providers.
1)As specified, some crypto exchanges are rolling out custody services to its users for a mutual involvement of institutional investors in the market. They offer this custodian management service either through internal development or by acquisition.
For example, BitGo’s recent acquisition of digital asset custodian Kingdom Trust, which holds more than $12 billion in assets. It would not be surprising to see crypto exchanges making similar purchases to boost their offer in future.
2)Another solution to the problem is decentralized exchanges. The main advantage of the platform is the user control their own funds irrespective of exchanges.
