BitGo is one of the longest-running cryptocurrency companies, first founded in 2013 as a bitcoin wallet provider. In 2018 the company expanded its service to a multi-signature wallet which now supports over 200 crypto-assets.
The multi-signature feature uses multiple signature encryptions to validate a transaction, which enables private keys to be spread to more than one individual.
Ben Chan, chief technology officer of BitGo, told Finance Magnates,
BitGo is the first multi-signature wallet platform that provides support for such a wide offering of highly traded digital currencies.
Institutional investors and exchanges appreciate the scalability and security that our single, unified API provides.
