System Security

At Independent Reserve we go to great lengths to ensure the security and integrity of the system and the cryptocurrency held within.

Our core servers are securely located at two Tier 3 data centres, in Sydney, Australia. This allows us to synchronously replicate all data across both locations in real-time, to ensure zero data loss should disaster strike. To ensure system continuity, we have a fully configured production environment in a secondary data centre, ready to fail over to should the need arise. Our data is signed and encrypted using geographically dispersed keys, spread across four data centres. We utilise cold storage to hold the majority of cryptocurrency completely offline.
