From security to financial services
BitGo is the only company that has been focused exclusively on serving institutional clients since 2013. In 2016, two things became clear:
- Institutional clients needed more than a wallet for digital assets
- The existing digital asset market structure was so fundamentally broken that it was preventing institutional investors from participating
One of the primary strengths of digital assets is that they are decentralized. Ironically, the current markets where we trade digital assets, including Bitcoin, are the most centralized markets in the world. No other asset class is traded with so little safety for large investors where the exchange operates as all parties–the broker, the exchange, the clearing house, and even the bank. In 2018, seeking to create a safer and more robust market for digital assets, BitGo became the first independent, regulated custodian purpose built for digital assets by launching BitGo Trust Company.
Today, BitGo is focused on working with clients, partners, and regulators to deliver innovative security, custody, and liquidity solutions. Security and safety is forever our core responsibility.
