Crypto custodian Copper's systems designed to minimize counterparty risk — gunnercooke

Copper, a blockchain asset infrastructure provider, today announced it has obtained a legal opinion from gunnercooke which confirms that Copper has included in its Vault Account crypto-asset custody solution systems and controls designed to minimize the level of counterparty risk to which its clients are exposed.
