iTrustCapital, the US leading software platform for buying and selling cryptocurrencies through IRA retirement accounts has announced it is integrating with Fireblocks, the digital asset businesses provider.
The move will enable iTrustCapital to expand the custody of client assets and introduce new products and services across the decentralised finance stack while providing an enhanced level of security for customers.
Blake Skadron, president and co-founder of iTrustCapital (pictured), commented security is the company’s number one priority, and Fireblocks provides “enterprise-grade security through MPC-CMP, and additional diversification from our already rock-solid qualified custodian infrastructure so that we can move at the speed of the market”.
“Fireblocks’ broad range of token support, robust policy engine and easy access to DeFi will also enable us to diversify our investment offerings and remain agile with the fast-paced crypto market environment,” he added.
‘Astronomical growth’ in new products and services expected
iTrustCapital attracted over $2.2bn in assets and 22,000 client-funded accounts since inception and earlier this year, it was voted the #1 Crypto Retirement Platform by the IMA Impact21 Awards.
The company grew from $2bn to more than $4bn in trade volume in just the last four months alone and has received more than 1,600 Trust Pilot reviews.
Michael Shaulov, CEO and co-founder of Fireblocks said that “with the growing awareness of cryptocurrencies among consumers, we expect to see astronomical growth in new products and services being introduced by traditional retirement platforms that will address this demand”.
“By working with iTrustCapital, we will be able to expand the access that their customers will have to different digital assets while also enabling them to easily launch new offerings that currently do not exist.”
