How do I set up my Unchained business account?

Set up a new account for your business, nonprofit organization, or trust.

Unchained offers the ability to add a business account with the same login credentials as an individual account. Business accounts provide the best multisig solution for businesses looking to secure bitcoin with the flexibility of adding partners.

Note: You will first need an Unchained account to set up a business account. If you haven't done so, visit the Unchained home page and click Sign up to get started.

Choose concierge or self onboarding

Concierge Onboarding is an optional service offered by Unchained. Our team will schedule a live video call to assist in setting up your hardware wallets, creating a vault, and depositing bitcoin

Self onboarding is for clients who are comfortable setting up their own hardware wallets and don't need help creating a vault.
