Market leader and multi-signature technology pioneer BitGo henceforth holds clients’ crypto assets for Nexo, the world’s first instant crypto-backed loans provider, ensuring a peace of mind for investors and clients alike.

Nexo’s platform went live on April 30, 2018, following an 11x oversubscribed Public Pre-Sale and over $1bn in requests for early access to Nexo’s loans.

BitGo’s track record has been impeccable in terms of safeguards against security breaches, implementing the Cryptocurrency Security Standard (CCSS) Level 3, an open standard that focuses on the cryptocurrency storage that is currently the go-to standard for any information system that handles and manages crypto wallets as part of its business logic.

BitGo provides secure wallet and custodian services for other leading blockchain enterprises like Kraken, CME Group, Pantera Capital, and UPbit.

Processing over $10 billion in transactions per month, BitGo will help Nexo scale as an ever-growing number of clients get instant access to cash via Nexo’s instant credit facility.

BitGo provides a multi-sig wallet featuring robust business rules for co-signing like rate limits, address whitelists, webhooks, secondary approvals, and others. It further builds private blockchains used in custom asset digitization and decentralization solutions. BitGo’s API allows clients to build proprietary-level bitcoin applications retaining full control over their keys and transactions, a great enhancement to the user experience for Nexo clients.
