MOLECULAR COLD STORAGE FOR DIGITAL ASSETS
Our system is the safest method of cold storage on the planet, developed by a group of experienced asset managers and biotechnologists.
To properly secure your digital assets, redundancy is critical. Carverr's DNA storage system is unique in that it transforms your data from digital information to biological, and therefore requires no software updates or internet connection. Since it lives off-line, it is protected from hackers and because your code is contained in a strand of DNA it can never become obsolete, unlike other cold storage methods.
HOW IT WORKS
A Cutting Edge Data Vault For Corporations
We use a custom encryption method to convert your digital code (1s and 0s) into a string of bases consisting of As, Ts, Cs, and Gs, i.e. DNA. Your code is checked numerous times for accuracy. Carverr then manufactures a strand of synthetic DNA, using the string of bases. DNA manufacturing is a tried-and-true method dating back to the 1950s.
Join the growing number of customers joining our pilot program
Carverr is interested in developing products around the needs of our customers. We are inviting a select group of companies to test out our products and services.
By changing your data into DNA, you are morphing your code into a tangible end-product, similar to gold or diamonds. You are taking your digital currencies off-line and making them independent of time.
Unlike electronic devices, DNA will never become obsolete. Reading and writing DNA will always be relevant; therefore, there is no need for software patches, updates or new hardware.
