Based in the EPFL Innovation Park, ARCATrust provides a novel general-purpose security platform for companies willing to store and manage their digital assets, such as crypto currencies or smart contracts, with the highest level of security.

Nowadays, companies’ digital processes are about optimisation, efficiency and timely execution. Blockchain technology is a good tool for achieving this efficiency. However, security risks are proportional to the advantages of the Blockchain technology. For that, easy-to-use and secure solutions need to be provided.
