GK8 cold vault cryptocurrency storage and MPC solution for custody, DeFi, staking, NFT and tokenization support has announced adding support for Tezos Proof-of-Stake blockchain protocol. Implementing the blockchain protocol is available thanks to a grant provided by the Tezos Foundation.
GK8 is a regulation-ready solution that offers creation, signing and sending of a blockchain transaction with no internet connection. In combination with a high-performance MPC wallet, it allows users to complete a large quantity of automated transactions.
The company uses a unidirectional connection technology for cryptocurrency wallets, which adds a layer of security to cryptocurrency wallets. As the company reports, it leaves "no openings for hackers to exploit." The validation is made with Soc2 type 2 certification from the Big4 firm E&Y.
Besides the main storage solution, GK8 offers secure tokenization of traditional assets, which includes support of EVM-compatible L1 blockchains and access to all L2 smart contract-supported chains. With the help of the AON company, customers are provided with quick and seamless access to insurance of up to $750 million per vault.
As the head of operations at Tezos Foundation, Roman Schnider, noted, GK8 brings to the table a combination of security, professionalism and an efficient way of storing cryptocurrency assets via a cold vault and an MPC setup. Solutions similar to GK8's are important for institutional interactions with fast-growing industries like DApps on Tezos.
