Big news today from Bloomberg‘s Matthew Leising and Alastair Marsh: “Fidelity Investments is targeting a March launch date for its Bitcoin custody service, according to three people with knowledge of the matter, as the mutual-fund giant moves forward with a plan that could help ease fears of trading cryptocurrencies.”
“We are currently serving a select set of eligible clients as we continue to build our initial solutions,” the company said in a statement. Over the next several months, we will thoroughly engage with and prioritize prospective clients based on needs, jurisdiction and other factors.
A source familiar with the new enterprise told CoinDesk on Tuesday that the cold storage function of Fidelity’s new Bitcoin custody service is already live, with some assets currently under management.
