MoonXBT Works with Fireblocks to Add Best-in-Class Digital Asset Security to the Platform
MoonXBT, the young innovative social trading platform, has recently integrated the leading provider of digital asset technology, Fireblocks, to strengthen security and customer and investor assets on the platform.
For any legit exchange, security is one of the most important risk issues to tackle. Cybercriminals have existed since the creation of the internet, but no other attracts hackers like crypto exchanges do because of the huge amounts of capital flow at the exchanges every day. According to Hackernoon, over 60 major cryptocurrency hacks have occurred since 2011 causing $12.6 billion of losses from investors.
One of the most common targets of hackers is the hot wallets of the crypto exchanges. For instance, the most famous crypto theft of Mt. Gox happened because hackers gained access to the unencrypted wallet.dat file which stored private keys to the funds. This resulted in the loss of almost 800,000 BTC with a value of nearly $24 billion at today's price.
