Institutional Custody for DeFi dApps

Securely Trade, Lend, Borrow or Hedge with DeFi and Bitpanda Custody

Decentralised finance (DeFi) offers unique opportunities to maximise returns through strategies across borrowing and lending, staking, yield farming, trading and more. However, the ecosystem is lacking in institutional digital asset custody solutions that offer both security and accessibility.

Today's solutions are designed with the individual in mind, not regulatory compliant, and lack the controls and automation needed to run a digital assets business.

Bitpanda Custody's high-performance, insured crypto custodial wallet platform, TrustVault, is the DeFi wallet that lets you safeguard and administer cryptoassets at scale.

Safer Transactions

Customise smart contract transaction policies with multisig, whitelists, threshold signing, DeFi and compliance firewalls to meet regulatory requirements. Control who approves what and where to send your funds with a fully-automated solution.


Share Wallets

TrustVault For MetaMask

As the first and only custodial wallet to integrate with MetaMask, TrustVault lets institutions and individuals securely interact with DeFi DApps from a browser, desktop, mobile app or through APIs.  Lend, borrow or trade with your private keys protected by institutional-grade security and insurance. Our DeFi Firewall solution for smart contract transactions lets institutions add extra safeguard measures such as granular controls and rules like allow and deny lists.

Our latest MetaMask chrome extension upgrade lets users now access Layer 2 rollup networks like Polygon Matic and Optimism as well as zero-knowledge proof networks like DyDx through pilot testing.  Users can also explore other Layer 1 Ethereum compatible blockchains like Binance Smart Chain and Avalanche.

Case Study

Solving for DeFi Complexity: The Radix Story

Radix needed both an independent intermediary and automation to manage the process of unlocking its eXRD tokens via smart contract control. This function needed to meet a variety of security and legal requirements. This put them in a position of operational risk for smart contract administration.   

Bitpanda Custody in its capacity as an independent, DeFi-enabled and insured custodian worked with Radix DLT to simultaneously automate the necessary multi-factor authorisation controls and limits to transaction calls on smart contracts needed

    Keeping pace with Defi

    Watch the segment on NFTs, featuring Bitpanda Custody Founder and Managing Director, Alex Batlin and Sfermion Managing Partner, Andrew Steinwold.  Institutional appetite for decentralised finance is being extended to now include non-fungible tokens,  more commonly referenced as NFTs.
