Preparing to apply for Fidelity Bitcoin ETF (Attention: ★★★★☆)
US financial giant Fidelity is reportedly in the process of applying for a physical Bitcoin ETF.
The company tried to apply again in 2021, but it was rejected by the SEC. This time, like BlackRock and WisdomTree, it is highly likely that structures will be introduced that address the “lack of oversight sharing agreements with regulated markets related to physical Bitcoins” that the SEC has pointed out.

In a statement on the 28th, the Sui Foundation stated that it “does not sell staking rewards or other tokens from locked and non-circulating staked SUI on Binance or otherwise,” Certain transactions were payments that were subject to contractual lockups.”

Prime Trust Bankruptcy (Attention: ★★★★☆)
The Nevada State Department of Financial Institutions has filed with the court to become the trustee of Prime Trust, a cryptocurrency custody company that is said to have recently suffered financial difficulties. It appears to have actually gone bankrupt.
Prime Trust has run out of money to repay customers and has lost access to some wallets, according to Nevada Department of Financial Institutions filings. Specifically, it has more than $85 million in cash owed to its customers, but only about $3 million in cash remains and $69 million worth of cryptocurrency to pay to its customers. Current inventory is said to be about $68 million.
TrueUSD, the issuer of the stablecoin TUSD, used Prime Trust but recently issued a statement that it had no exposure. However, there seems to be growing concern that the Prime Trust is involved in custody of the TUSD backing assets recently issued by Binance.
