Newton was started by a team of experienced Canadian entrepreneurs and has strong financial backing. Our goal is to set a strong example for good corporate citizenship in the cryptocurrency space. And if you still don't trust us, we've made it really easy to withdraw crypto into your own wallet for safekeeping.
Newton has undergone a rigorous review and approval process with the Ontario Securities Commission (OSC) and the other members of the Canadian Securities Administrators (CSA) and is one of a small number of registered crypto trading platforms registered to operate in Canada. The registration process included extensive reviews of our internal financial, compliance and security processes as well as requirements related to working capital, insurance, and the storage and custody of our customers’ fiat and crypto assets.
We don't hide behind a veil of anonymity — our CEO's name is Dustin Walper, and rumour has it he does birthday parties for Bitcoin.
Newton enforces security requirements internally, including mandatory password rules, internal security audits, and conducts regular penetration testing.
We rely on trusted-third party custodians to store the vast majority of our customer crypto assets in secure locations with no access to the internet (aka “cold storage”).
Our customers’ custodied assets are also insured against hacks and theft.
At Newton, security of the platform and our users is our top priority. You can follow this link here to read up on our process for reporting a security vulnerability.
