We've built a fortress

Secure bitcoin storage is what we do best. We've developed a new standard in bitcoin security that protects your assets by using man, machine and even a mountain to keep your money safe.

How does the security actually work
  • Cryptographic
  • Physical
  • Jurisdictional


The Xapo Vault incorporates multiple layers of the most advanced forms of cryptographic security to secure your bitcoins. These processes include multi-factor authentication and private key segmentation between others.


Our Vaults are located deep underground in geographically dispersed locations on three continents. Confidential information like private keys and cryptographic materials are physically stored on offline servers that never have and never will have access to the internet or any other kind of network. The servers are guarded by intense human and automated security measures 24/7.


The geographic dispersion of the Vaults is designed to protect user funds from loss due to catastrophic events in a single location: in the event of a compromise in one location, the other Vault locations would remain accessible.

How do I retrieve my bitcoins?
48 hour window

Once you're ready to retrieve your funds from the Vault, we begin an advanced security process to verify your identity. We then employ extensive authentication measures to ensure that you are the one who initiated the request. This will initiate a sequence of secure steps to get your requested bitcoins transferred from your Xapo Vault to your Xapo Wallet within 48 hours (on business days). During the transaction process, you can track the progress of your transfer in your transaction history.

Do you have a bitcoin business? Even your company can safely store all of its bitcoin in the Xapo Vault.
