Digital Assets Custody Standard

Version 2.0

March 1, 2023


A set of industry developed requirements and recommendations for technology solutions to enable secure custody and management of digital assets.

Version 2.0 of the DACS was released following review by CMTA stakeholders leading to an update reflecting new developments in the custody space (especially MPC-based solutions). In addition, the wording of certain requirements was modified to make them more auditable, with respect to the CMTA.DACS certification regime.

The DACS was developed by a working group of CMTA's Technical Committee and reviewed by CMTA's members through a consultation process.
