Industry partners are developing concepts with IOTA across automotive, mobility, eHealth, and smart energy sectors, as well as social impact and government regulations, supply chain, and global trade activities. Crypto Storage AG, a subsidiary of Crypto Finance AG, brings a solution with a new professional level of security for IOTA’s industry partners and users.
(Zurich, Switzerland- January 9, 2019) Crypto Storage AG, a subsidiary of Crypto Finance AG, is pleased to announce the result of its collaboration with the IOTA Foundation: the first multi-signature storage solution available for the storage of high volumes of IOTA tokens worldwide. This storage solution is designed to meet the needs of financial intermediaries as well as significant partners across a variety of industries working on concepts that use IOTA. The collaboration between the IOTA Foundation and Crypto Storage AG enables private and public investors, as well as institutional investors and beneficiaries to securely manage access to their IOTA tokens. IOTA enables new business models for companies and organizations. Users of the Crypto Storage solution receive an additional level of security through separate infrastructures and definable approval processes.
“Crypto Storage AG is proud to support the IOTA platform with our top-tier infrastructure, as we see rising demand with our clients and IOTA’s industry partners to enable the IOTA token without compromising on security,” says Stijn Vander Straeten, CEO of Crypto Storage AG.
Started in 2015, IOTA sets itself apart from blockchain developments, with the goal of driving the future economy of interconnected and autonomous devices. Key elements in this distinctive approach include their distributed ledger called the Tangle, the open-source eco-system, and the vision of enabling the Internet of Things. IOTA is helping create concepts for machines to share data in automotive, mobility, eHealth, smart energy, humanitarian and government regulations, supply chain, and global trade industries. “Keeping data secure with infrastructure from Crypto Storage AG will contribute to the development of these concepts and the IOTA Foundation’s vision of supporting a machine-to-machine economy,” says David Sønstebø, co-founder and co-chair of IOTA Foundation.
Crypto Storage AG adds IOTA to its crypto asset storage capabilities. This provides specific benefits for two key groups: Crypto Storage AG clients now may enable their business model with IOTA investments, and leading companies in industry working with IOTA can meet their institutional and compliance requirements.
