That's why we selected an anchor shape that stays true to our name. It is also reflected in the four blocks that represent our core principles: industry-leading security, regulatory leadership, custody as a foundation, and our commitment to customers," the company says.

"We have and will continue to practice a 'security first' model with custody as the foundation so that our other offerings are equally safe and secure. Ultimately, keeping customers' assets safe is the most important thing we do, which reflects our approval as a bank - at the federal level - our security model and strong controls. We also guarantee our customers experience some of the fastest SLAs (service-level agreements) in the industry and 24/7 coverage″, explains an official company source.

I wasn't expecting [the collapse of] FTX, I wasn't expecting [the collapse of] Alameda, and we'll see what the impact is on the market. But we don't have any plans to change course at this point," the cofounder said.

"Right now, there are no plans for either of those paths (layoffs or slowing/freezing hiring). The current plan is to maintain product goals, maintain the goals of the engagements we've made with customers and re-evaluate every six months," he further said.
