What is Xapo Bank's Bitcoin Vault?

min read

Xapo Bank members can store their Bitcoin in the Bitcoin Vault, a new storage option with extra security features that give you more control over your Bitcoin withdrawals.

What are some of the advantages of storing your Bitcoin in the Bitcoin Vault feature compared to keeping it on exchanges?

Xapo has been a pioneer in the Bitcoin ecosystem, which is why the security of our members' Bitcoin remains a top priority.

This is where the Bitcoin Vault comes in. You deposit your Bitcoin in the Bitcoin Vault on the Xapo Bank app and enjoy additional layers of security to keep your Bitcoin protected. It has been designed for storage specifically and is kept entirely separate from the standard BTC account, BTC Savings account, and global debit card.

Depositing funds in the Bitcoin Vault is seamless and totally free. When you withdraw your Bitcoin, there’s a 48-hour transfer delay that gives you the option to cancel at any time. 

Is it safe to keep Bitcoin in Xapo Bank?

Xapo Bank is one of the safest places to store your Bitcoin, and we maintain the highest security standards to keep our members’ Bitcoin safe at all times.

Here’s how we do it:

  1. Fully regulated Bitcoin Custody Services as a VASP (Virtual Asset Service Provider)
  2. We have one of the largest Bitcoin reverses in the world
  3. We have never suffered a digital breach or hack since we opened our doors in 2013. This proves that we implement best-in-class security for uncompromised safety.
