As Bitcoiners, we always encourage self-custody; however, your assets will be safe on our platform.

Regular audits

Our systems regularly undergo independent security penetration tests by leading security firms.

Account notifications

Data minimization

We store the least amount of data required on our clients for the shortest time possible and use tiered, role-based access controls.

Multisig cold storage

Our clients' Bitcoin is kept offline in cold storage and requires multiple signatures (multisig) to identify and authorize a transaction.

We aren’t built on third parties

River's custody systems were built from the ground up to maximize security and minimize dependence on third parties.

Geographically dispersed keys

Bitcoin keys are stored in multisig cold storage in geographically dispersed locations.

Account protections

River accounts use mandatory multi-factor authentication (TOTP or SMS), and passwords are bcrypt hashed with a work factor of 14.

Security monitoring 24/7

Our specialized security operations team is continuously monitoring our systems to keep your money safe.
