Many Operators choose to utilize the services of Exchanges and other online wallet providers. You may also elect to operate your own node, thus eliminating any dependency upon other providers. Nodes only require a server & your participation.
If you decide to run your own CAS, you'll typically use an SSH tunnel to securely connect to those nodes. The GB Cloud server does NOT however, permit you to create an exclusive private SSH tunnel.
The GB Wallet Tunnel satisfies this important need.
