Cold Storage for Cryptocurrency

Learn how our cold storage for cryptocurrencies works.

SWP offers offshore cold storage for cryptocurrency wallets and keys. Clients can rent a safe deposit box housed within our Class III UL-rated vault in the Cayman Islands to store their wallets and keys for only $250 USD per year.

How Cold Storage Works

Making A Deposit

  • Option A) We can arrange a FedEx shipment of your wallet and/or key to our Cayman Islands facility on your behalf. For $150 USD, we will provide you with a pre-paid FedEx label, a fire-retardant bag as well as a tamper evident bag to protect your wallet and/or key while in transit.

Once the package arrives at our facility (within 24-48 hours), an SWP representative will deposit the unopened tamper evident bag containing your wallet and/or key into your safe deposit box. We will then FedEx you two safe deposit box keys (you can elect to store one key at our facility for future use).

  • Option B) Clients can hand carry their wallet and/or key to the Cayman Islands by commercial flight or cruise ship. Once you arrive at our facility, you can make the deposit into the safe deposit box.

Making A Withdrawal

  • Option A) If you wish to make a withdrawal from your safe deposit box, you (or an Authorized Representative) will have to be present with your safe deposit box key in hand. You can make a withdrawal upon 24 hours' notice during regular business hours.
  • Option B) You can elect SWP to make the withdrawal on your behalf (we will require one of your safe deposit box keys). We will arrange a FedEx shipment of your wallet and/or key to your physical address on file, or to an alternative cold storage location for a cost of $100 USD.
