This means that Crypto.com has been certified as the most secure crypto trading platform in existence, and the first crypto exchange to pass the SOC 2 standards. Behind the audit is Deloitte, an international firm that provides audits, consulting, tax, and advisory services to worldwide brands.
The firm said that meeting SOC 2 standards reaffirmed its commitment to data privacy and security, and it will continue to invest in enhancing its platform to provide the highest standards in the industry.
“I am extremely proud of our SOC 2 compliance and shows our commitment to security, privacy, and regulatory compliance which have been cornerstones of our business since day one,” said Kris Marszalek, Co-Founder and CEO of Crypto.com.
CRO Gaining Ground Following New Deals and Partnerships
The firm has been continuously forging new partnerships this year.

The transition will occur on Christmas Day during a hosted game where the spotlight will focus directly on the Crypto.com brand.
CRO, the exchange’s native token, has surged to incredible heights in the last three months, with gains of over 430%. The token is now traded at $0.85, with a market cap of over $21 billion, following a 7-days surge of 103.98%. After hitting an all-time high, Crypto.com launched an OTC (Over-the-counter) portal to seamlessly allow institutional and VIP clients to make large trades.
