Bit2Safe Introduction

Blockchain networks are safe, but, Bitcoin & crypto wallets, are hackable, vulnerable, and therefore do not protect investors, corporations, and financial institutions.
Financial institutions must use the best methods to protect their customer’s crypto assets, however, this is impossible given today’s wallets.

Bit2Safe is a patent-pending, crypto wallet built for corporates and financial institutions.
It’s patented built-in one of a kind distributed-self-custody technology, designed to eliminate hacking or losing the secret keys.

We love open-source, therefore Bit2Safe is open source and distributed.
