How Does Pipefold Work

Investors need non-custodial trading

Proof Of Reserve

Traders connect their custody accounts to Pipefold. Once connected, traders can use these funds by creating a “Proof of Reserve” (PoR). The amount pledged is held at the custodian until the PoR is removed or the trade is settled.


Pledge As Contract

Traders pledge amounts from The PoR to exchanges of their choice. They can change these allocations with a few clicks at any time in the Pipefold platform.


Trade Assets On Venue

Traders execute their orders business as usual, using the balance populated in their account on the exchange from the Pledge as Contract. Funds are still secure at the custodian.


Post Trade Settlement

When an outstanding balance is created, the trader is prompted to settle the account. Funds can be drawn/deposited directly from/to the PoR or settled in another way by trader.
