Amber stores all of your Bitcoin in cold storage collaborative custody wallets, with the help of the team at Unchained Capital. Cold storage involves keeping the keys associated with the Bitcoin offline, whilst collaborative custody (also known as multi-signature) requires multiple parties to be able to sign a transaction to move funds from a Bitcoin address. Together, cold-stored collaborative custody is the safest way in the world to hold bitcoin, and because Amber is a buy-side dominant product, it means we can maintain 100% of all bitcoin in cold storage.
