Non-Custodial Mode

Self-custody for your bitcoin

Updated over a week ago

With the Non-Custodial Mode, you can send every bitcoin purchase on 21bitcoin directly to your own external wallet. This guarantees absolute self-custody.

Non-custodial means that you have sole control over your private keys and therefore over your bitcoin, without them being held by a platform. In short, only you have access to and control over your bitcoin, and no one else.

With other services, you often have to wait several hours or even more than a day for your bitcoin to arrive in your wallet. We always process your withdrawal in the next bitcoin block. This means you only have to wait an average of ten minutes for your bitcoin to arrive in your wallet – faster than anywhere else.
