Basics

Owning digital crypto assets unlike other digital assets can be challenging due to the self-sovereign nature of the ownership. It means that the owner is the only safe keeper of the assets. This might be intimidating for many as they don't want to be completely responsible for preserving the assets against attacks and natural disasters. Also, there is no standardized way to easily and securely back up and recover these assets. In addition to this there is known safe and convenient way to pass on the valuable crypto assets to your loved ones in case of an unfortunate event.

Safient to the rescue#

Safient promises to securely and conveniently store any critical information that is needed to access and recover the assets in case of any tragic events. Safient also provides a trustless yet safe way to transfer and inherit the assets by close ones whenever such an unfortunate scenario occurs.

Safient uses decentralized storage, smart contracts, and cryptography techniques to build a protocol that helps to store, recover, inherit crypto assets and other confidential information. In essence, you can think of Safient as your trusted guardian even though it is completely trustless.

How does it work?#

Safient allows any user to create a safe where secret seed phrases or any other general notes, attachments can be added with instructions. Safient workflow mainly consists of three phases.
