Earlier this year, Coincheck suffered what has been described as the biggest loss in cryptocurrency history. According to the BBC, $534m worth of NEM assets were stolen.
Coincheck is an online exchange, and the funds lost were stored in a hot wallet.
Cold wallets aren’t foolproof either. They can still be hacked in some cases, devices could get lost, damaged or stolen. For most hardware devices, funds will be lost forever, if this were to be the case.
This is a perfect example of what Goldilock is trying to prevent. They wish to ensure the safety of users and institutions, protecting their digital assets, so that they can be at peace.
Goldilock has a solution that draws from the merits of hot and cold wallets, to create a solution that is much more effective, than existing technologies.
