What is Escrow?

In a contractual arrangement known as “Escrow,” two parties entrust a neutral third party with valuable assets, like money, software code, or other assets, until specific predetermined conditions are met. This concept has its origins in the Old French term, “escroue,” which referred to a parchment scroll held by a third party until a transaction was completed.

Escrow services become highly valuable when parties are hesitant to commit fully to a contractual agreement due to concerns about the value of the assets involved or potential long-term cooperation issues, such as insolvency or transition.

When selecting an escrow service provider, two crucial characteristics are of utmost importance: neutrality, ensuring the unbiased handling of the assets, and reliability/security, guaranteeing the safety and integrity of the assets.
