Commonwealth Crypto is working to make cryptocurrency trading faster and more secure.
Commonwealth Crypto is developing technology to allow traders to maintain custody of their coins while trading at a cryptocurrency exchange. Our technology ensures that no one, even a compromised or hacked exchange, has the power to take custody of a trader’s digital assets. Instead, traders can keep their coins securely housed in their wallet or custodial service, even as they trade. Our technology is compatible with top cryptocurrencies including Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin and ZCash.
