We are excited to announce that EGLD and tokenized assets issued on the Elrond Network can now be safeguarded using Copper’s asset custody and secure settlement services.
Copper’s multi-award-winning custody solution harnesses the security of MPC (Multi-Party Computation) technology. Their services and technology are tried and tested across 250 digital assets, more than 40 exchanges and in use by more than 300 institutional asset managers.
Through the collaboration, the two partners will create the opportunity for institutional players, fund managers, exchanges, trading avenues, and other market actors to get safe, secure, and compliant access to the enterprise-ready capabilities of the high throughput, low cost, carbon-negative Elrond Network blockchain technology, and EGLD, the digital currency underpinning it.
Beniamin Mincu, Elrond Network CEO, said: “Best in class digital asset custody services are essential for making the rapidly expanding Elrond ecosystem accessible to more institutional actors, markets, and geographies. With Copper as a robust custodian for assets on the Elrond Network, a new growth chapter is ready to begin for the internet-scale blockchain.”
Alex Ryvkin, Chief Product Officer, Copper.co, said: “By expanding our portfolio of integrated technologies to include the highly innovative and carbon-negative Elrond Network, we reaffirm our commitment towards our customers to enable safe, secure, and transparent access and control over the most innovative and sustainable digital assets.”
Elrond is the internet-scale blockchain, designed from scratch to bring a 1000-fold cumulative improvement in throughput and execution speed. To achieve this, Elrond introduces two key innovations: a novel Adaptive State Sharding mechanism, and a Secure Proof of Stake (PoS) algorithm, enabling linear scalability with a fast, efficient, and secure consensus mechanism. Thus, Elrond can process upwards of 15,000 transactions per second (TPS), with 6-second latency, and negligible cost, attempting to become the backbone of a permissionless, borderless, globally accessible internet economy.
