Backpack Milestones

Backpack Exchange is regulated.

Backpack operates on the Virtual Asset Service Provider (VASP) license from the Dubai Virtual Assets Regulatory Authority (VARA).

VARA is the worlds first independent regulator for virtual assets. They provide a framework for Backpack to operate transparently in all jurisdictions:

  • robust KYC requirements

  • investor safeguards

  • ongoing audits

Backpack Exchange is secure.

Backpack is built on a private blockchain that is designed specifically to run a crypto exchange.

Each deposit, withdrawal, order placement and cancel is agreed upon by independent nodes on the network.

Our standards are rigorous.

Our bar is high, and we are committed to not only do things right by the current financial rules, but to forge new paths for centralized institutions leveraging cryptography for trust minimization.

-Armani Ferrante, Backpack founder
