Learn Concept: Understanding Cold-storage Solutions in Cryptocurrency

By: Eva Baxter

When it comes to managing digital assets, including cryptocurrencies, cold-storage or offline storage solutions play an integral role. These systems are designed to securely store digital assets offline, thus providing robust protection against unauthorized access and cyber attacks.

Recently, IBM, a renowned tech giant, has unveiled IBM Hyper Protect Offline Signing Orchestrator (OSO), an innovative air-gapped cold storage system for digital assets. This system, developed in collaboration with Metaco, a Ripple subsidiary, and tier-1 banks, aims to tackle common vulnerabilities in traditional cold-storage systems.

IBM's OSO system automates the process of initiating and executing transactions, minimizing the chances of human error and insider attacks. The system houses digital assets in secure, 'air-gapped' storage containers that are resistant to cyber attacks. The OSO technology effectively removes the need for administrators to physically transfer storage devices for transaction signing—a common weak link in existing systems.

By automating the management and transaction processes, the OSO system promises to revolutionize the way digital assets are securely stored and managed, catering to a critical need in the ever-expanding cryptocurrency market.
