Proof of Reserves (PoR) is a method that shows the assets held by cryptocurrency exchanges in custody wallets, especially for users. PoR provides evidence that the assets of users on cryptocurrency exchanges are fully and mutually held and protected in a 1:1 ratio.
For example, when a user deposits 1 BTC on a cryptocurrency exchange, the exchange’s reserves increase by at least 1 BTC to ensure the full backing of customer funds. This means that the cryptocurrency exchange holds all user assets in a 1:1 (and some reserves) ratio.
