Victoria, Seychelles, 26 January 2023 — Bitget, the world’s leading cryptocurrency exchange and Web3 company, announces a significant enhancement to its platform wallet security with the upgrade of Multi-Party Computation (MPC) technology, which means that Bitget upgraded all users’ wallet addresses to MPC addresses. This strategic update exemplifies Bitget’s unwavering dedication to user security, incorporating cutting-edge technologies such as the Threshold Signature Scheme (TSS) and Trusted Execution Environment (TEE) to set new industry standards.
Bitget’s MPC wallet addresses introduces a paradigm shift in security standards by leveraging the following cutting-edge advancements:
- Distributed Computing: The implementation of multi-party distributed computing eliminates the risk of a single point of failure, fortifying the overall resilience of the wallet.
- Homomorphic Encryption: Through this innovative encryption technique, Bitget ensures secure transactions without exposing private keys, providing an extra layer of confidentiality.
- Trusted Execution Environment (TEE): Bitget’s MPC wallet is fortified by TEE, bolstering hardware security and instilling user confidence in the safety of their digital assets.
Aside from the above, Bitget’s commitment to security extends to the generation and signing of transactions:
- Secure Key Generation: Distributed key generation ensures the safe and dispersed creation of private key shares. This approach safeguards against single-point failure, enhancing the overall robustness of the wallet.
- Collaborative Signature Protocol: The platform employs a distributed collaborative signature protocol during the signature stage, preventing the leakage or aggregation of multiple private key shares. Homomorphic encryption technology further fortifies this process, occurring within a trusted execution environment (TEE) without revealing the complete private key.
