Upvest.co developed the first institutional grade multi-protocol wallet. As the only wallet in the world it enables access to all major blockchains with one simple access point. Access control is provided off-chain enabling multi-role management, 100% recoverability and customer specific settings (IP whitelisting, parent-child wallets, mixers, max volumes etc). Due to intelligent encryption methodologies and key management systems, Upvest has at no point ever access to the private keys. The wallet acts as a hub for efficient OTC trades across chains without a middle man and gives access to the top 1% of private market deals out-of-the box. The technical solution will be open for global developers to build powerful financial and legal apps on top paving the way for a new financial world.
Our mission is to engage professionals in the blockchain economy and enabling the next wave of security tokens. The company was founded by serial entrepreneurs Jesper Noehr (founder of Bitbucket, exit to Atlassian), Martin Kassing (COO of ShopCo, exit to Klarna) and Ivan Morozov (backend lead at Kreditech). Upvest has substantial revenues and is backed by Europe’s largest VCs (e.g. Holtzbrinck Ventures).
