Crypto exchanges will now be able to provide complete transparency as ChainUp offers its Merkle Tree Proof-of-Reserves solution.
Amidst the ongoing debacle with Sam Bankman-Fried’s FTX exchange, and after several such incidents in the crypto sector over the past few months, crypto is really crying out for technology that will ensure more transparency and therefore more confidence among the investing/trading community.
According to a press release for ChainUp, the Merkle Tree Proof-of-Reserves technology is explained in the following way:
“A Merkle Tree is a cryptographic tool that enables the consolidation of large amounts of data into a single hash which acts as a cryptographic seal that “summarizes” all the inputted data. The Merkle Tree Proof-of-Reserves thus provides assurance to users by enabling quick, easy verification of a large volume of data, which in turn promotes transparency of the data.”
The release goes on to say that the Merkle Tree Proof-of-Reserves will give users a fast way of verifying asset security, and also “improve the transparency of institutional reserves”.
Sailor Zhong, Founder and CEO of ChainUp said of the technology:
“Transparency is crucial for crypto exchanges to gain the trust of end-users and investors. Our latest Merkle Tree Proof-of-Reserves solution aims to support our existing clients and other industry players in showcasing that users’ fundings are secure and safe, and as a result, strengthen overall trust in the industry.”
