Fireblocks, Coincover protect digital assets with security and private key management

Monday 23 January 2023 11:46 CET | News

UK-based digital asset protection technology Coincover has provided customers of Fireblocks with an alternative for key backup and disaster recovery for digital assets.


As a non-custodial and direct-custody technology provider, Fireblocks believes that users should have total control of their own assets, including where and how they store their assets, in order to further mitigate counterparty risk. With this objective in mind, Fireblocks provides disaster recovery options for how customers recover from a loss of access to their keys or how customers may recover in the event of Fireblocks service disruptions.

UK-based digital asset protection technology Coincover has provided customers of Fireblocks with an alternative for key backup and disaster recovery for their digital assets.

Backup is ‘key’

Fireblocks requires all customers to either: independently backup their keys, engage the disaster recovery services of a third-party service provider, such as Coincover, or use a combination of self-storage and third-party disaster recovery service for added redundancy and recoverability.

Commenting on the partnership, officials form Fireblocks said that their partnership with Coincover provides their customers with an additional layer of security in the event that customers lose access to all their key shares. When used in combination with self-storage, clients are guaranteed business continuity, even in the face of market disruption.

Officials from Coincover added that it’s no secret that losing access to assets is the most pressing threat to crypto adoption. Their research revealed that almost two-thirds (65%) of people are worried about the rise of crypto fraud. Recent events in the digital asset market have shaken the trust and confidence of both retail investors and institutions to the core. They believe that crypto security and investor protection in digital assets hold the key to market recovery.

Early pioneers may have been comfortable with managing their own risk, but – for wider adoption – investing money with a digital wallet or exchange should feel as safe as storing cash in a bank. The partnership between the two companies aims to help accelerate the mission to make digital assets safe for everyone to hold and use. As Fireblocks has already been proactive in helping customers secure themselves against loss of access to their digital assets, this new collaboration will certainly help in moving the dial towards greater adoption of crypto, as investors finally have a solution that can mitigate this risk.
