South Korean blockchain security firm Uppsala expands into NFT custody space

Uppsala Security, a provider of security tools and services for crypto AML/CTF, transaction risk management, regulatory compliance, transaction tracking, and cyber security, recently announced the expansion of their business in the NFT (non-fungible token) custody area.

In the recent months since the NFT space expanded exponentially, a number of cases related to damaged assets emerged when using marketplaces dedicated to NFTs. Among these, pirated and forged artworks take up a large percentage of the associated damage. As an example, in September 2021, pirated NFTs falsely claiming to be related to the famous British artist Banksy were sold for about $400 Million USD.

Witnessing such incidents and malicious activities, it was a clear sign that the market required a service that not only provides the authenticity of the art pieces and original authentication but also provides the liquidity and safe storage of the NFTs. The Uppsala Security’s NFT Custody Service is able to support these demands, all at the same time.

According to Uppsala Security, the users benefiting from this service will be able to store the original NFTs through the Custody Service and freely make a trade with the separately wrapped token, like in the example of wBTC (Wrapped Bitcoin) on the Ethereum blockchain. Uppsala Security could be considered as a highly secured “art museum” and the users can make a trade through the marketplace similarly to action, without any barrier. Through this structure, users can entrust their artwork to a highly secure entity similar to an art museum and directly participate in the NFT trading auction at the same time.

In addition, Uppsala Security issued the NFT that includes the virtual asset tracking and damage compensation services and has registered it on Opensea as part of its entry into the NFT market.

For Uppsala Security, this initiative aspires to achieve two goals: to provide both liquidity and stability.

By allowing users to participate in NFT distribution while using the custody service and relieving the anxiety associated with being solely responsible for the access to the NFTs, the stability of NFT assets can be increased.

Meanwhile, Uppsala Security continues to provide Anti-Money Laundering solutions to Virtual Asset Service Providers (VASPs) and helps with the recovery of damaged virtual assets.
