ZH Capital takes extreme measures to ensure malicious actors can’t impact our block production and validation operations. Signing servers responsible for producing and signing blocks are firewalled and only able to communicate with listening servers, and secured in geographically distributed data centers with full-time physical security, monitoring and access controls. Hardware signing modules are used for key management wherever possible, otherwise secure vaults are used. In the event our servers are hacked or someone gets physical access, hardware signing modules prevent key loss.
Staking is a non-custodial process whereby stakeholders are able to delegate their tokens to validators while retaining control of their private keys. Staked does not custody customer holdings ensuring that in the unlikely event of a hack, customers funds are never at risk of being stolen.
ZH Capital employs industry best practices around internal controls to guard against abuse. Our offices do not store keys or contain anything of value. All private keys are secured offsite. All remote access by employees uses public-key authentication. No passwords or other phisable credentials are used. Multi-sig technology is used to secure against attacks and prevent internal abuse.

We feel strongly about contributing to the IoTeX ecosystem and being a focal point in rallying the Australasian IoTeX community
To effectively provide the block producer services required to support thousands of commercial scale DApps requires not only an agile enterprise scale infrastructure solution, but a mature operational structure to monitor, maintain and manage that infrastructure.
Professional integrity, transparency, commitment, cooperation and independence are all characteristics that the IoTeX community can expect from ZH Capital.
We believe our proven experience will inspire confidence in IoTeX stakeholders, DApp developers and IOT based blockchain businesses for the operation and governance of the blockchain, while supporting our region as a global member of the IoTeX community.
