Crypto.com reveals its assets as fallout from the FTX crash brings a new level of transparency to exchanges in the industry.
CEO Publishes Cold Wallet Addresses
The CEO of Crypto.com, Kris Marszalek, released the first Proof of Reserves (PoR) dashboard showing how the company’s nearly $3 billion in assets are allocated.
In a move toward full transparency, the CEO tweeted the list of cold wallet storage on Nov. 11. Crypto.com holds a healthy one-third of its reserves in Bitcoin, roughly 31%, according to the new dashboard of PoR put together with Nansen AI.
The shocking revelation is that 19.83% of the reserves, the second-most, are held in the meme coin Shiba Inu. Ethereum reserves come in below Shiba Inu at just 17%.
The Shiba Inu holdings are startling but also show that the hype for the token is real. The faith in Shiba Inu is still strong amongst users of Crypto.com;.
Crypto.com confirmed that a fully audited PoR will be coming in the near future, which should shed more light on the health of the reserves. On the back of the FTX fiasco, customers and users should welcome this transparency from major exchanges.
The lesson from FTX is that no exchange is safe and that users should hold all exchange’s feet to the proverbial fire. For now, it appears that Crypto.com welcomes the scrutiny.
