Partisia Blockchain unveils MPC On-Chain Custody Advanced solution in Davos

DAVOS, 17 JANUARY 2024. Today in Davos, Partisia Blockchain unveiled its latest product – MOCCA (MPC On-Chain Custody Advanced solution). The MOCCA solution revealed during the World Economic Forum is a decentralized and fully programmable multichain custody solution designed to redefine the landscape of securing digital assets and ease custodial management.

The key differentiators of MOCCA from the existing custody solutions are its decentralized and enhanced programmability through smart contracts, blockchain agnostic multichain functionality, advanced security and compliance, and configurable privacy.

Peter Frandsen, Chief Technology Officer at Partisia Blockchain, says:

“MOCCA solution marks a significant milestone in the evolution of decentralized custody; it addresses the current limitations of traditional smart contracts and centralization. MOCCA empowers institutions and organizations with genuine decentralization, advanced programmability and the flexibility to secure digital assets across multiple chains. Backed by our decades-long expertise in multiparty computation (MPC), this product is our commitment to delivering cutting-edge solutions that redefine the standards of security, compliance, and innovation in the blockchain space.”

Partisia Blockchain’s latest MOCCA product addresses the limitations of inflexible and centralized custody solutions, offering genuine decentralization while providing full programmability. This is especially beneficial for institutions, decentralized autonomous organizations (DAOs), wallet providers and exchanges seeking trustless collaboration on securing digital assets.

The fully programmable nature of MOCCA’s custody smart contracts enable policies such as the addition or removal of signers, modification of threshold signature schemes and voting powers, integration of NFTs with special permissions, implementation of specific rules for transaction categories and much more.

Users can choose to bridge assets to Partisia Blockchain or secure assets on their preferred blockchains, offering flexibility and choice. Deployment is swift and cost-effective, directly on-chain, with customizable templates and tools. The MOCCA solution is designed to be blockchain agnostic, relying on MPC technology independent of protocol support.

Backed by 35 years of MPC research, Partisia Blockchain’s newest MOCCA solution ensures security and compliance. Advanced features, such as off-chain signing and key decentralization contribute to safeguarding substantial funds against potential threats. Public blockchains enable automatic key rotation and adjustable transparency levels, ensuring robust protection against attacks. Partisia Blockchain’s MOCCA goes beyond standard custody offerings by introducing security-audited standard policies and allowing for arbitrary code logic.

MOCCA deploys on public blockchains where its code and state are visible. However, key shards are exclusively generated and stored by users or MPC clusters, and then submitted to the decentralized MPC protocol. This allows participants to actively engage in governance and sign transactions directly on-chain—a significant advantage over commonly used TSS protocols, which are challenging to modify once deployed.
