At SignedBlock, we conduct cryptocurrency algorithmic trading research and develop trading strategies and algorithms in a closed invite-only setting. Our experts in machine learning, artificial intelligence, and signals and systems continuously iterate on high-frequency algorithmic trading methods that allow our clients to make meaningful high-quality controlled-risk investments in an area where traditional brokerage algorithmic trading methods fall short and fresh ideas are required for fruitful exploration.
We build capabilities at all levels, educating management and technical personnel in understanding blockchain both at a business and managerial level as well as at an in-depth technical level. We assist in every step of the technical implementation on an advisory, auditing and general guidance basis in the specific areas of security, cryptography and management.
We cover the industry standards when it comes to token and protocol creation, being proficient in a variety of protocols such as Ethereum (ERC20 & ERC223). We also assist with custom smart contract development, dApps & API Integration, Customized Crypto Wallets, Security Penetration Testing and code audits.
We offer crypto assets storage for private investors, providing physical security of private keys, yet having them accessible with reasonable and configurable effort. We strive towards a physical and digital secure storage of the private keys on highest grade hardware security modules with detailed configuration possibilities for individual and role-based access control, enabling flexible multi-signature schemes in addition to native blockchain-specific features.
