1.Overview and Highlights
The crypto asset industry, which is only a decade old, has made great strides in recent years. At the end of 2017, the total market cap once exceeded 600 billion US dollars at the peak. The traditional financial industry has its asset managed by custodian banks and has a relatively mature asset protection system. However, such an open and transparent custody mechanism has always been missing in the crypto asset industry. The lack of this underlying infrastructure has become a bottleneck restricting the growth of the industry.
Bluehelix decentralized custody and clearing platform emerged as the time required.

This innovative asset clearing and custody technology has brought a disruptive innovation to the crypto asset market, enabling users' assets to be better protected than bank-level security.
With the help of Bluehelix's technical capabilities, BHEX trading platform can maintain the high performance of millions of transactions concurrently after achieving the security and credibility of decentralization. Bluehelix adopts the model of super-node and global custody and liquidation blockchain technical framework, and has the traditional financial level of business, technology and compliance capabilities. Users' assets are managed entirely through decentralized blockchain technology, providing transparent services for crypto assets to individuals and institutions.
