TrustExplorer – Real-Time Assurance

TrustExplorer is an Armanino-owned and -controlled software solution that offers asset-backed token projects and their holders a new level of trust and transparency. It is the first and only solution in the marketplace offering real-time reporting for token issuers and users. Armanino’s proprietary solution does not rely on third-party blockchain data services. Instead we host and control our own public blockchain nodes to query the circulating supply of a given stablecoin every 15 seconds. The TrustExplorer system also leverages a robust REST API gateway that can support multiple financial institution connections to obtain real-time data from trust companies and banking partners. The result is a solution that breaks the mold, offering a level of transparency never before possible.


Proof of Reserves

The Proof of Reserves portal, hosted on TrustExplorer, is an Armanino owned and operated audit and assurance platform specifically for the digital asset industry.

It enables users to cryptographically verify that their account balances on a service provider’s platform have been properly accounted for and are fully collateralized. No technical expertise needed!


Trusted Node as a Service

We host nodes in a controlled, permissioned environment and expose that data to approved third parties through REST API and Explorer tools. We place industry standard compliance controls and reporting (e.g., SOC 2) around these services to provide data that financial statement auditors, regulators and other approved parties can rely on. Armanino’s Trusted-Node as a Service provides an efficient solution for blockchain operators, consortium members and ecosystem participants who require third-party assurance regarding the security, availability and data integrity of both public and permissioned chain data.


Blockchain Discovery

We help you understand what this technology is and isn’t. There are a variety of different use cases for blockchain technology across industries. We identify tested and tried business solutions that fit your specific business case.

Cryptocurrency Payment Enablement

We set up a best-of-breed software environment that enables you to safely accept and make payments using cryptocurrencies.

Cryptocurrency Accounting System Implementation

We help you implement and optimize digital asset accounting and payment systems that interact directly with the applicable blockchains. We help create technical accounting policies, internal controls and process flowcharts for digital assets, while considering the tax implications throughout to prevent surprises at year-end.

Digital Asset Custody

We facilitate the custody solution selection and implementation, and document key controls and policies for safeguarding digital assets.

Security & Risk Testing

Digital assets on the balance sheet, high-volume digital currency transactions, custodial holdings, smart contracts and enterprise blockchain environments require an audit approach and technical understanding that is not common in the market today.

Armanino was among the first to complete financial statement audits for clients with high transaction volumes of on-chain and off-chain digital assets. To fulfill the technical audit procedures needed to cover existence and ownership of digital asset balances, as well as transaction testing, we have developed our own blockchain explorer tools.
