Proof of Solvency Audits

Ensuring Trust Through Transparency

Proof of Solvency Audits

In the world of digital assets, trust is paramount. Users need to know that the platforms they entrust with their assets are solvent and capable of meeting their financial obligations. This is where Cryptosec’s Proof of Solvency Audit services come in.

Proof of Solvency (PoS) is a comprehensive audit that combines Proof of Reserves (PoR) and Proof of Liabilities (PoL). PoR is an audit that provides a cryptographic proof that a custodian holds adequate reserves to cover user deposits. On the other hand, PoL is an audit of a custodial platform’s debts and liabilities. If the total number of assets exceeds the total amount of user deposits and liabilities, then the company is solvent.

While Proof of Reserves (PoR) is a useful tool for proving that a custodian holds enough assets to cover its deposits, it isn’t enough on its own. A custodian could easily take out a loan to accumulate sufficient assets to pass a Proof of Reserves (PoR) audit. However, the custodian may then lack enough assets to repay both the loan and the user deposits. This is where Proof of Liabilities (PoL) comes in, providing a complete picture of a custodial platform’s financial health.

In some cases, a Proof of Solvency (PoS) audit is more than just a best practice—it might become a regulatory requirement. For instance, in jurisdictions governed by certain regulations, conducting a PoS audit is likely to become mandatory for certain types of financial activities. Our PoS service can help you meet this requirement, providing you with a comprehensive assessment of your financial health and helping you demonstrate compliance to regulators.

In the digital age, conducting a Proof of Solvency (PoS) audit is not just a legal issue—it’s a business imperative. It’s critical to maintaining the trust of your customers, partners, and stakeholders.
