“The recent FTX situation has taught the industry an important lesson about decentralization and transparency.”
SafePal has reported record numbers of new users in the wake of FTX’s insolvency, with traffic to the platform increasing by 10x since November 11. Sales of SafePal’s web3 hardware wallet also reached record highs during the same period. Over the last 6 months, the number of users exceeds 7 million, covering users from more than 196 countries.
The decentralized wallet brand includes software/hardware/extension wallet offerings and is backed by Binance since a founding round in 2018 led by the world’s largest crypto exchange and former rival of the collapsed FTX.
Since the spectacular implosion of Sam Bankman-Fried’s centralized exchange, the digital asset space has seen cryptocurrency users flocking to non-custodial solutions for storing their coins.
“FTX situation has taught the industry an important lesson”
Veronica Wong, Chief Executive Officer at SafePal, said: “The recent FTX situation has taught the industry an important lesson about decentralization and transparency. As more people realize the importance of taking full control of their assets, SafePal will become one of the major web3 gateways for the crypto masses.”
The importance of self custody is now quite clear and SafePal happens to be one of the solutions providers of non-custodial storage. The decentralized wallet brand was founded in 2018 to provide security and user experience.
The influx of new users mirrors a broader trend for cryptocurrency holders to favor non-custodial solutions that helps minimize counterparty risk.
SafePal is a crypto management platform that supports 15 languages and 54 blockchains and allows users to store, manage, swap, and trade their crypto assets.
Its more than 7 million users across the globe have access to SafePal’s hardware wallets, software wallets, and browser extension wallet product lines.
