Features

  • Transactions from a Gem wallet require two signatures for authorization, one from a private key held by Gem, and one from a private key held by the wallet owner.
  • The wallet owner also has a third private key, intended for offline backup, that allows the cosigning of transactions without Gem involvement.
  • Multisignature scheme for cryptocurrency processing

Benefits

  • The risk of theft is mitigated, because it requires compromising two keys.
  • Gem cannot spend from a wallet without the owner’s authorization since we hold only one key.
  • The wallet owner does not require Gem’s authorization for expenditures.
