Main Benefits

Instant Availability

No more splitting funds between hot and cold wallets. You have full autonomy over your accounts—including 24/7 instant access to funds without sacrificing on security.

Fits Any Use-Case

Supports multiple use cases: self-custody; 3rd-party custody; or a mix of both.

Tailored Governance

Goodbye multi-sig, hello multi-authorization: Impose spending limits, whitelist addresses, and manage governance rules securely using the Ledger PSD.

Agile Governance

Ledger Vault grows with your business. Easily update your governance framework without exposing your private keys to quickly adapt your Vault to your changing business processes and needs. Changes to the governance framework can be securely implemented in just minutes, making Vault suitable for even the most agile businesses.

Whitelisting

Ledger Vault’s handy address whitelisting feature gives you complete control over the addresses each account is authorized to transact with. Fast-track your authorization flows by assigning trusted addresses to accounts and limit your day-to-day risks by setting transfer limits to non-whitelisted addresses.

Secure, Flexible Signing

Multiple actors within the institution are required to sign off on each transaction, ensuring no single point of failure in the transaction approval flow. The approval sequence can be pre-defined or random, providing increased flexibility over who is needed to sign which transactions, and under what conditions. Actors can be geographically distributed to maximize security and operators are unable to see who else is involved in the same approval flow.

Transactional Control

Optimize your transaction flows by processing multiple transactions concurrently. Each transaction processed within Vault is securely held in memory until the requisite number of operator approvals are achieved. These can be approved and then broadcast in any order, at any time, giving you absolute control over pending transactions.

Here's why leading digital asset businesses choose Ledger Vault

Frequently Asked Questions

Ledger Vault distributes the transaction signing responsibility to several actors through its multi-authorization scheme. This is a more flexible approach to multiparty governance since it allows transactions to be signed following a quorum of approvals. For example, a $2,000 transaction might need approval from 3 out of 7 operators before it is approved, whereas a $50,000 transaction might have more stringent authorization flow. This differs from multi-signature in that the operators involved in signing a transaction never access the private key material, and instead approve transactions using their unique Ledger personal security devices (PSD).

Yes! Ledger recently released its API, allowing clients to easily integrate Vault with their pre-existing infrastructure. Client applications can now interface with the Vault via our new Ledger Authentication Module (LAM), which communicates with the Vault through a cryptographically secure channel. At first, clients will be able to extract data from their Vault instance over API, but transaction and governance APIs are due to launch this year.

Ledger is constantly monitoring the market and working with clients to identify crypto assets that are most in-demand. If there is sufficient demand and the crypto asset meets our rigorous security, risk management, and viability checks, it will be added to the Vault.
