LoctonBank is custodial storage, with mandatory KYC/ AML procedures, provides the following:
  • multi-signature features;
  • API for auditing and integration with third-party systems;
  • anchoring transactions in the public blockchain;
  • full customization embedded in the architecture of the platform.
This set of qualities provides almost unlimited opportunities to build varied financial products for any level of consumer.
Operational and human vulnerabilities
These risks are eliminated in tiered storage because of its architecture.
Users, by setting up accounts and according to their needs, distribute the conditions for storing assets.
“Hot zone”
request from the user account;
“Warm zone
user request and additional confirmation with a key from the customer service department;
“Cold zone”
customer request, a customer service key, and a third party arbiter key;
Also, any user can assign additional security steps (for example, when placing especially large assets) - personal presence, additional signatures from trusted persons or organizations, etc.
All this in addition to standard KYC, 3D secure, withdrawal whitelists and other asset protection methods.
Low yield deposits
In the US today, the rate on deposits in a classic bank is about zero, in Switzerland the rates on deposits are negative.

Lack of insurance
The financial transaction sector requires envisaging any threats in the loss of user contributions, including unlikely.
In addition to classic deposits, Lockton offers to stake assets based on the Proof-of-Stake protocol. Depending on the project, clients are awarded in percentages, and are possible to withdraw or keep accumulating interest.
Another tool is liquidity pool replenishment for DeFi projects. Clients’ capital is used to ensure the liquidity of the project which compensates for the period of funds placement.
Crypto lending
Traditional lending is associated with a large number of risks and costs for financial institutions.
In crypto loans other crypto assets serve as credit security and they are automatically foreclosured
Responsible party denial of service
Access to private or corporate assets can be lost due to the death of the owner or holder of the keys. There are many such examples in modern history. The known case occurred with the QuadrigaCX — Canadian Exchange, when died Gerald Cotten the head of the company. So, access to digital assets valued at more than 75 thousand users was lost.
Any client of Lockton Bank has the opportunity to draw up a contract for the transfer of a digital asset stored in the bank in the event of his death. In the event that the terms of the contract are fulfilled, after verifying the fact of death through a request to the competent authorities in the jurisdiction of the user, the bank activates the contract. The contents of the contract are only available to two parties, the originator and the new recipient.
Compliance with regulatory policies
Blocking the user's funds due to the possible unreliability of their origin.
At Lockton Bank, the receipt of assets undergoes a preliminary AML check in cooperation with specialized providers (Chainanalysis, Elliptic, CipherTrace, Crystal Blockchain and etc.), which qualitatively reduces the likelihood of receiving a “dirty” asset. It is equally important to take into account the trustworthiness of the recipient when withdrawing assets.
Investment banks, funds, international corporations are seriously considering blockchain-based projects in their portfolio due to the increasing acceptance of the technology by institutional market participants.
