Could be. Maybe BitGo is too big to fail. I have nothing to do with either so yay

This stinks to me. Swan switches partners from prime trust to fortress (same founder as prime) and Bitgo, then Bitgo bails out prime trust clients?
🧐

It seems like Swan might not have done their research. What even is Fortress?

Hate to break it to you Maxis, but as an insider...I can tell you that many of Prime Trusts problems stem from the same legal/compliance/executive team that is now at Fortress...BEST OF LUCK!

the obvious and inevitable failure of 3rd party custodian services does not negatively affect Bitcoin at all

lol I don't think anyone I know was counting on Fortress being much better.

Same founder as prime trust so I don’t think it’s a coincidence Swan is working with them. I think Swan might actually have some explaining to do.
To me they seem more like a media company.

Media Company seems like the perfect characterization tbh.

Pretty soon the only reliable way to buy bitcoin will be in person or cash by mail

This is the trouble with building things the wrong way the first time.

Looks like a while lot of consolidation going on and creating custody services that can be easily captured, if you're using an exchange that uses these things get your funds off it, coinjoin and don't expose too many funds to them when stacking
