Anchorage to Support Custody and Unlocking Contracts for Filecoin at Launch

Diogo Mónica, Co-Founder and President

Anchorage will support both custody and unlocking contracts for Filecoin at mainnet launch later this summer. As the digital asset ecosystem evolves, and more and more token projects utilize unlocking contracts as part of their protocols, it will take adaptable solutions to support them. We’re proud to have built our solution in a way that can accommodate the unique needs of emerging blockchains, and to offer support for custody and unlocking contracts at launch.

“Anchorage has developed really interesting technology to improve usability without sacrificing security. We’re excited Filecoin token holders will have the option of working with them.” — Ian Darrow, Head of Operations, Filecoin

As true believers in the good that crypto can do to fix problems endemic to the internet in its current form — problems like lack of data sovereignty, lack of privacy, and often weak security controls — we’re particularly excited about the Filecoin protocol. Leveraging blockchain protocols to decentralize secure data storage and open web access to the billions of people around the world currently disconnected is a step in the right direction. Bolstering this effort with the same kinds of incentive structures that power the value of Bitcoin and keep users participating in other protocols is a smart way to ensure that a better, less centralized internet is built on a firm foundation of mutual interest.

If you plan to hold Filecoin, or you’d like to learn more about support for your assets of choice through Anchorage, please get in touch.
