MIAMI, Jan. 17, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via CryptoCurrencyWire -- Aegis Custody, a subsidiary of Aegis Capital Management, today announces that it will launch its digital assets custody solution for U.S. investors at the upcoming North American Bitcoin Conference, where company CTO Frank Fu will take the main stage to discuss “Enabling Secure Commerce for Digital Assets.”

The North American Bitcoin Conference (Miami, Florida, January 17-18) provides a forum for top business leaders, executives, investors and entrepreneurs in the blockchain, Bitcoin and fintech industries. Fu, a pioneer of the Internet and blockchain industry, will present his expertise to conference attendees on January 17 at 12 p.m. EST. He will also be available for further discussion at booth K1 on the show floor.

“I am excited to present at the North American Bitcoin Conference, an ideal event for the launch of our game-changing institutional digital asset custody solution,” states Fu. “In the first half of 2018, over US$1 billion of digital assets were stolen. Managing custody of blockchain assets has been complex and risky – until now. We are proud to lead such a vital industry change.”

Aegis Custody recently previewed its new institutional digital asset custody solution at Foxconn’s launch event in Taipei. Backed by Fosun Digital Group and Foxconn, Aegis Custody’s hardware-cloud hybrid solution provides security for digital assets on the blockchain through the use of multi-signature wallets secured by a unique combination of proprietary hardware, cloud services, workflow, cold storage, as well as a service center where transaction workflow is optimized and divided into separate functions and managed by a highly trained professional global operations team.
