Crypto Custodian Prime Trust Files for Bankruptcy Protection

The bankruptcy filing follows Prime Trust's placement into receivership in late June by Nevada regulators, who determined the company was insolvent and unable to service customers.

Later that month, a Prime Trust subsidiary called Banq filed for bankruptcy due to alleged mismanagement under former CEO Scott Purcell.
