BitGo Security Architecture Limits Risk

Our security architecture is engineered in a manner that is intended to prevent a breach affecting more than one wallet

  • BitGo maintains segregated wallets for each client.
  • Each wallet is multi-signature with keys that are secured offline in purpose-built, Class III bank vaults.
  • The keys inside these vaults require multiple users to access them.
  • Signing a transaction is a rigorous and carefully scrutinized process that takes 24 to 48 hours because of the policy and process checks.
  • BitGo Trust Company has policies and procedures for changing personnel, restoring systems in the event of local failures, as well as strong audit logging and access controls.

How well are your digital assets covered?

In the event of a theft or direct loss of property, how would an insurance payout be distributed?

BitGo will make best efforts to distribute insurance recoveries across all clients who have suffered losses. In the event that total losses exceed insurance recoveries this does not change BitGo’s legal obligations outlined in customer agreements.

Additional Insurance Options

BitGo is collaborating with insurance broker Woodruff Sawyer to help clients that are interested in purchasing their own additional insurance. BitGo Business Wallet clients will be able to purchase key recovery service (KRS) insurance and additional insurance for their self-custody keys through third-party company Digital Asset Services.
