Crypto Dossier 

The fee for the preparation of the Crypto Dossier amounts to € 250 including VAT for an estimated commitment of 4 hours for the execution of standard requests.

In the preliminary phase CheckSig will always communicate to you an estimate of the overall commitment, and if the commitment is higher than the standard, it will provide you with all the details of the activities that required the additional commitment.

F.A.Q.

What do I need to open an account?

Private individuals: a copy of your ID, your tax code, email, and mobile phone number.

Institutional clients: the list of ultimate beneficial owners (UBOs) and authorized delegates with relevant documents for each (articles of incorporation for companies, ID and tax codes for private individuals).

Our support team can then guide you through AML and contract signing.

Is there a minimum contract duration?

No, you are free to withdraw all your funds at any time. Fees are based on the amount in deposit: when no funds are in custody, no fees are due.

How does the deposit process work?

Send us a request and we will reply with a destination address using both email and a fully encrypted chat (WhatsApp, Telegram, or Signal). You can then transfer your Bitcoin to that address, and we’ll send you a formal deposit receipt when the transaction is confirmed.

If needed, our team can also assist you, in person or videoconference, in a simple step-by-step process to send your Bitcoin to our address.

How does the withdrawal process work?

You will be asked to provide a destination address for your Bitcoin, using both an email and a chat such as Signal, Telegram, or WhatsApp. You will also be required to prove your identity with a video call with our support team.

Your Bitcoins will be transferred to the destination address at the next time-delayed safe opening of our vault. The waiting time between withdrawal request and funds availability is a security feature, designed to dramatically reduce risk of fraud.

In case of immediate need of your funds, instant liquidity is also available in a business day at a 1% one-time fee.

Can I pay the custody fee in EUR or USD?

You can, but for your ease and privacy we advise against it.

Paying in Bitcoin is easy, hassle-free, and privacy preserving: CheckSig will simply withhold the funds from your custody amount, no payment will be visible in your current account or credit card statement.

If you do not want to erode your Bitcoin investment, just top it up with some more Bitcoin to cover for the custody fees.

What are the tax implications?

Depending on your jurisdiction, you might need to include your Bitcoin holdings in your tax statement. CheckSig is not a withholding agent and does not provide tax advisory services. We will, however, be happy to introduce you to our network of independent tax advisors with specific crypto know-how. We also simplify the filling out of your tax statement by providing you with a Crypto Dossier. Your Crypto Dossier is the complete documentation of all your operations such as transfers and withdrawals, sales and purchases. We will take care of its compilation and all the calculations ourselves. More details on pricing here.

Apart from Bitcoin, what other digital assets can I deposit?

As of today, we provide custody for Bitcoin only. So far, all our investments, innovation, and effort have been focused on Bitcoin, as it is the only crypto-asset whose protocol allows us to provide you with truly unparalleled security.

What is your fork policy?

CheckSig will do its best to deliver the best value and experience to its customers, but we cannot guarantee that any specific Airdrop or Fork will be supported. CheckSig will decide on a case-by-case basis, depending on many factors, including:

  • Strength and safety of the available technical solutions
  • Market capitalization and liquidity on main global exchanges
  • Compatibility with CheckSig business and service obligations

If something were to happen to CheckSig, are my funds still safe?

Beyond the usual custody process, in case of disaster scenarios robust recovery procedures can rescue all funds. To learn more, read about our custody protocol.

The Bitcoins in our custody are segregated from our company assets: in case of CheckSig bankruptcy, they cannot be claimed by creditors.

Your Bitcoins are safe with us, whatever might happen to us.
