Yield App is pleased to announce that we have conducted a second proof of reserves audit with Armanino LLP and we have once again passed this assessment, proving that we place the security and liquidity of our customers’ assets above all else. 

The proof of reserves crypto audit was conducted on Tuesday, 16 August 2022, using a ‘point in time’ methodology. This attestation reassures customers that Yield App has sufficient assets on its balance sheet to cover all of its customers’ liabilities – or in simple terms, that the business remains liquid.

What is a proof of reserves crypto audit?

A proof of reserves audit is conducted independently by a third party, such as Armanino LLP, to verify that a company holds enough assets on its balance sheet to offset its customers’ liabilities. 

These public attestations are reconciled cryptographically, allowing customers to verify the information for themselves from a trusted source. Having published our inaugural audit in January 2022, we remain committed to publishing periodical attestations by trusted partners in the future.
