Anchorage Digital Settlement

Atlas: Where institutions maximize capital efficiency

Buy- and sell-side institutions use Atlas (Anchorage Digital Trusted Liquidity and Settlement) to avoid the counterparty, delivery, and bankruptcy exposure risks inherent to trading. Join the only crypto settlement network offered by a federally chartered bank, Anchorage Digital Bank.

An unparalleled settlement offering

Atlas couples the safety of traditional settlement with the benefits of digital asset technology so traders can fully separate settlement and execution concerns through on-chain settlement.
Secure staking

Simultaneous settlement

Anchorage Digital executes simultaneous settlement instructions on behalf of counterparties, and only does so when joint conditions are met.
Participate through a qualified custodian

Protected assets

Assets held at Anchorage Digital Bank or Anchorage Digital Singapore are verifiable on-chain, segregated, and bankruptcy-remote.
Flexible delegation


Settlement is fully integrated with custody: approve settlements and monitor settlement status on the Anchorage Digital platform.
Reach internal consensus

Enhanced capital efficiency

Within Atlas, a ring-fenced, safe settlement network, institutions can trade crypto and fiat and settle quickly across multiple counterparties without the need for DvP.
Proven security

Industry-leading security

Our differentiated security mitigates the risk of human error; while keys are offline, transactions can still be signed in seconds—unlike with cold storage.
Dependable reporting

Flexible settlement timing

Choose to settle ad-hoc 24/7, or settle end-of-day across all the settlement obligations you have with your counterparties.

Crypto settlement you can trust

Anchorage Digital is the only custodian to provide on-demand settlement directly between participants without escrow, collateral, or the use of omnibus accounts. Simplify transactions and reduce operational risk by providing settlement instructions through Atlas; our automation-based systems will safely process transactions on-chain and programmatically move end-customer assets.

Tri-party solutions

Atlas also enables institutions to minimize counterparty risk through tri-party solutions. Collateral is held in a segregated vault, and the secured party maintains a transparent view of collateral in which the pledgor is granting a security interest.
