Finance executives host a panel presenting key insights on crypto custody for investors in 2023
LOS ANGELES, April 14, 2023 — BitcoinIRA, the world’s first and most trusted digital asset IRA technology platform, today announced an upcoming webinar titled “Crypto Security – What Investors Need to Know: A Conversation with BitGo, BitcoinIRA, and Digital Trust” held virtually on April 20, 2023, at 11 AM PT.
Attendees will have the opportunity to learn from experts in alternative and traditional asset custody as they discuss a savvy investor’s most crucial questions. The seasoned panel of financial executives has over 60 years of combined experience, and includes BitcoinIRA COO Rick Synrod, BitGo Director of Institutional Sales Steve Scott, and Maryann Bullion, Digital Trust General Counsel and CCO. Adam Sporn, U.S. Head of Institutional Sales at BitGo will moderate.
The panel will answer audience members’ questions and discuss:
- Why holding your own keys is not a one-size-fits-all solution
- Moving beyond self-custody, what qualified custodians can offer crypto investors
- What we can learn from recent events (Three Arrows Capital, Celsius, FTX, and others) over the past 12 months
“Long-term cryptocurrency investors need custody solutions that not only protect their retirement savings, but also safeguard their assets with the most advanced technology on the market,” said Bullion. “This panel brings together BitGo, BitcoinIRA, and Digital Trust, partners who provide technology and custody services, to give investors new insights on this trending topic, including key factors to consider when looking at crypto security.”
“Digital asset investors today can choose custodial solutions that meet a wide range of unique needs and use cases,” explains Synrod. “The old adage ‘not your keys, not your coins’ can fall short because self-custody is not a one-size-fits-all solution, and it might not be a viable solution at all in some situations. Many prefer the practicality of storing their assets with a regulated, qualified custodian that offers cold storage custody and multi-signature wallet management.”
“BitGo, BitcoinIRA, and Digital Trust’s partnership sets the industry standard in multi-signature technology and security, offering investors peace of mind,” said Scott. “Recent events underscore the importance of security in the crypto industry, and this webinar will educate investors on the protection and insurance that regulated custody can provide. We are looking forward to addressing investor’s concerns and educating crypto enthusiasts on their options.”
