Casa Crypto Security Firm Hires Trezor’s Alena Vranova
Alena Vranova, the founder of the Trezor, a digital currency wallet platform, believes that freedom is closely related to the security of an individual. Precisely, Alena thinks that a person achieves true financial freedom why their wealth security is assured.
This week, the Casa crypto-security company announced that Alena would leave Trezor to join them as the lead strategist. Casa is dedicated to the eradication of security issues experienced in the crypto space. Alena has already interacted with her new employers, having participated in the inauguration of the Casa node for Bitcoin and Lightning networks.
Earlier this year, Casa fundraised over $2 million to finance the development of its infrastructure. Usually, the company targets wealthy individuals and institutional investors. The project was created by Jeremy Welch. It works by connecting the digital wallet to the Casa platform that requires users to electronically unlock several keys before transferring assets from one address to another. To access this services, investors must have at least $500,000 worth of crypto assets in their possession. The charges for the services are $10,000.
According to Vranova, the rise of digital currencies has increased the necessity of services such as the ones offered by Casa. In this regard, Alena mentioned that a majority of crypto millionaires made their wealth during the famous bull run of 2017 when the value of Bitcoin reached a record $20,000. The prevalence of crypto theft incidences has risen significantly, a menace that Casa intends to curb.
“Casa intends to expand its portfolio to include average crypto investors. To this end, they are developing a security checklist solution for non-crypto experts who want to secure their digital assets.”
Participants will undergo the typical checklist that all Casa clients are subjected to as an automated method of gauging their security.
In addition, Welch revealed that the company is working on developing a product for the crypto inheritance market. Currently, most digital assets are rendered dormant if their owner passes away. Presently, Casa clients can leave an emergency key to an executor of an estate. However, Welch indicated that this solution is still underdeveloped and needs further work to become entirely effective.
