SOLUTIONS – bcustody

bcustody is a multi-signature wallet solution: it is a service that allows people to secure their bitcoin by having private key storage guaranteed by an original design

This design not only allows you to secure your value, but also to access it, therefore spend some of it, at any time, while keeping the rest secure.
bcustody is based on the installation of a multisig wallet (a function found in the Bitcoin protocol), a wallet that requires more than one signature (multi-signature) in order to transact the present value, where each signature is associated with a different key (in this case 2 out of 3, 2 maintained in-house and 1 entrusted to an outside professional).

Service Core.

We accompany the client in the creation and setup of the multisig wallet, managing the relationship with the verified professional who will manage the key outside the company.
We assist the client in the creation of a parallel singlesig wallet, where corporate assets will be placed in case of an emergency where one of the two keys stored corporately is no longer available.

We train the two managers and corporate staff who will have to manage the functions and processes related to Bitcoin wallets.

We handle all issues and concerns related to the use of the multisig wallet and the operation of the solution.

The third emergency key is entrusted to an impartial professional (e.g., notary, accountant, or lawyer) so that he or she can assist the company if issues arise with either of the two business keys.

In case of emergency and unavailability of either corporate key, we assist the client by contacting the support professional to move the corporate funds to a new wallet.

In the event of an interruption or issues with the service, we will assist the client in moving corporate funds to the company’s 100% controlled parallel portfolio.

With Bitcoin and thanks to asymmetric cryptography, ownership is defined solely by possession of the private key

In traditional banking, on the other hand, the person who holds value becomes its owner (Art. 1834 of the Civil Code), while the giver remains a mere depositary.
This is a key feature in cryptocurrencies, as it categorically rules out anyone not in possession of the private key from blocking or spending value. But it also generates a problem: in case the private key is lost, there is no way to access its value, which literally becomes inaccessible.

The multisig function, literally multi-signature (multisignature) implies that to spend any amount of value, not the signature generated by a private key is sufficient, but an n out of m number of signatures, usually 2 out of 3.
Through this function then, properly embedded in a structured design with different players, it is possible to overcome the trade-off between security (of not losing or having one’s value moved or blocked) and confidentiality (of being able to access one’s value by bypassing a malicious intermediary).
