MPC Cold Storage
Curv Air Gap is an extension of the already hyper-secure MPC technology that removes the single point of failure of private-keys for signing cryptocurrency transactions. Air Gap preserves the final signing process to a node wholly disconnected from any network, making our wallet security a true 2nd generation cold storage solution.
$50 Million Insurance Policy
Munich Re, established in 1880, performed extensive security audits on Curv’s technology before issuing the policy, which is a testament to MPC protocol and the robustness of Curv’s implementation.
