BitGo Becomes a Qualified Custodian by Obtaining a South Dakota Trust Charter

Yesterday, one of the leaders in the crypto custody space, BitGo, announced that it had become a qualified custodian by obtaining a South Dakota trust charter. BitGo, has registered as a public trust company, called BitGo Trust Company, in the state of South Dakota, regulated by that state's Division of Banking, thereby effectively creating a "bank" under section 202(a)(2) of the Advisers Act, which means that BitGo Trust Company is a "qualified custodian". BitGo claims that BitGo Trust Company is "the first qualified custodian purpose-built for storing digital assets." Mike Belshe, co-founder and CEO of BitGo stated:

"Custody has been the missing piece of cryptocurrency market infrastructure and this gap has kept institutional investors out of the market. Traditional custodians don’t have experience handling cryptocurrency. Exchanges that double as custodians present a conflict of interest and raise regulatory concerns. BitGo Trust Company is a qualified custodian, and therefore the only custody offering that delivers the highest levels of both security and regulatory compliance."
