Key Features

✅ Military-grade Security

Cobo Full Custody implements a robust 3-tier (hot-warm-cold) private key storage architecture with 95% of funds securely stored in cold wallets and only 5% in hot and warm wallets.

Cold wallets maximize security by storing private keys completely offline, making any hacking attempt nearly impossible since an attacker would require physical access to the wallet device itself, as well as the passwords to unlock it. Cobo further safeguards the cold wallets through key sharding and strategically distributing the offline key shards across multiple physical locations globally.

Hot wallets cater for fast withdrawals and deposits. To ensure the security and integrity of transactions, Cobo leverages bank-grade Hardware Security Modules (HSM), Intel Software Guard Extensions (SGX), risk policies and Cobo Auth for 2FA.

For warm wallets, Cobo combines the transaction speed of hot wallets with the strict security of cold wallets by storing the private key shards offline and only connecting to the internet when required. As an additional layer of security, warm wallet transactions are restricted to only whitelisted addresses.

✅ Unparalleled Token Support

Cobo Full Custody offers the industry’s most comprehensive coverage, supporting over 1,800+ tokens across 70+ blockchains. We are constantly adding new tokens and supporting the latest blockchain protocols to empower our users to stay ahead of the curve and confidently navigate the dynamic world of digital assets.

✅ Off-chain Settlement

As a Cobo Full Custody client, you gain access to Cobo’s Loop Alliance, the industry's first settlement network. With Loop Alliance, you can settle transactions instantly off-chain and free-of-charge with other network members. This powerful feature empowers you to effectively overcome network congestion issues and high gas fees.

✅ Advanced Risk Management

Cobo Full Custody utilizes Cobo’s superior risk management framework to effectively combat against every attack vector. Through Cobo’s intuitive platform, you can effortlessly customize granular policy rules such as spending limits, whitelists, blacklists, and more, as well as implement real-time on-chain monitoring, screening rules, and notification alerts.

✅ Role-based Access Controls and Custom Workflows

Cobo Full Custody offers role-based access controls and a highly customizable workflow engine that adapts to the specific needs and scale of institutions. You can set up roles such as Admin, Approver, Spender, Operator and Viewer to segregate user privileges. You can also configure and automate authorization workflows to streamline your operations. To ensure the integrity of each operation, Cobo Auth mobile app serves as a 2FA to support multi-role and multi-level authentication.

✅ Wallet-as-a-Service Integration

Cobo Full Custody offers simple wallet APIs and plug-and-play SDKs, supporting wallet-as-a-service (WaaS) integration. You can easily and quickly deploy an enterprise-grade wallet infrastructure into your applications and manage thousands of tokens across the majority of active public blockchains within a single wallet interface.
