Anchorage Digital started with custody. Five years later — custody is just the start.
Anchored in Trust. Built for the New Economy.

Standing where we are today, it’s hard to overstate how much things have changed in crypto. Over the course of the last five years, we’ve had the pleasure of leading institutional adoption by partnering with hundreds of notable asset and wealth managers, crypto protocols, cryptonative VCs, asset owners, banks, and fintechs. We’ve grown from an institutional custody brainchild of two security engineers into a trailblazer providing clients with strong regulatory protections, proven security, and efficient, personalized support.
And as institutional demand has grown, so has our offering.
The value of “custody-first” in volatile markets
Anchorage Digital’s core custody service has been foundational for client access to crypto. That’s because building with the same partner with whom you custody offers superior security and efficiency, which both creates opportunities and reduces risk. Amid current market events and volatility, the value of that built-in risk-reduction is more apparent than ever.
It’s also become abundantly clear why, for many institutions to hold, exchange, and settle assets, custody is both primary and principal: they’re required to work with qualified custodians and sub-custodians, and that comes with being an OCC-chartered bank.
Recent events have only served to strengthen our conviction, and validate our decision to seek the highest regulatory standard. And, given our best-in-class security and status as the first federally regulated crypto bank, our custody clients’ assets are always protected.
Anchored in trust. Built for the new economy.
Keeping client assets safe is the most important thing we do at Anchorage Digital. This reflects our federal charter, our security model and strong controls. We also ensure our clients experience some of the fastest SLAs in the industry and 24/7 coverage.
We’ve now expanded far beyond our base proposition of secure, accessible custody, to become a platform of many offerings integrated with the same security-by-design, including: staking, governance, trading, financing, and custom integrations.
That’s why we’re marking our five-year anniversary by unveiling a new logo.
Our new logo captures that continued journey of growth at a time when crypto needs a solid foundation and trusted, tested infrastructure. Staying true to our name, the new logo’s stylized anchor consists of four blocks representing our core tenets: industry-leading security; regulatory leadership; custody as a foundation; and our commitment to clients.
So as Anchorage Digital expands our offerings, we will stay true to those core tenets. By continuing to practice a security-first model–one with custody as the foundation–our clients find confidence knowing that our other offerings are just as safe and secure.
As we mark our five-year anniversary and new logo, we’d like to extend a special thanks to our clients and investors for joining in our vision and seeing our potential. We will continue to keep assets safe and secure as our top priority as we build in the market environment we’re in today, so that crypto can come out strong, with infrastructure for the years to come.
If you’d like to join us on that journey, please reach out to get started.
