More on BitGo Supporting TRX
As earlier mentioned, BitGo announced that it will be adding TRX support later this year. The firm, which is based out of Palo Alto, California, offers 5 digital asset solutions for all its institutional clients. They include:
- custody services
- business wallet
- self-managed storage
- private blockchains
BitGo’s custody solutions have one of the most advanced cold storage that include KYC/AML (Know Your Customer and/or Anti-Money Laundering). In the case of business wallets, BitGo offers clients the advantage of multi-signatures with three-key management. The latter two services is what the Tron protocol upgrade aims to address.
In crypto, Multi Signature(MultiSig) requires a set number of trusted parties to sign a transaction before it is recorded on the blockchain. Such measures are similar to how traditional cheques by large organizations usually have 2 or more signatories chosen from members of the board. These signatures provide additional security by guaranteed that the movement of funds has been authorized by the board members responsible for company finances.
