As a software developer, what are the requirements for banking with Silvergate?
Most of the software developers we bank are in the middle of raising capital. We want to understand whether these efforts are in the form of a private placement, regulated offering, or token sale. Our requirements and the due diligence we perform depend on the type of offering you are performing and the jurisdiction. Additionally, we like to understand the service providers that are helping with your fundraising efforts and the legal counsel that is being used.
Does Silvergate offer debit cards for our executives and employees?
Yes, we do. They are valid everywhere Visa is accepted.
Does Silvergate provide custody solutions for digital currencies or other digital assets?
We get this request frequently. Our team is exploring this product offering but we don’t have a custody solution for digital assets right now.
What types of cash management services does Silvergate offer?
We offer both wire and ACH services to clients based on several factors. Cash management services can be complex, especially for digital currency and broader fintech use cases. Our client service experts will explain how these services work and which firms are eligible for participation. Upon approval, we work closely with your technical and finance teams to ensure that implementation is efficient and timely.
