The future of custody is a race to zero fees, says BitGo’s CEO. Here’s why.

If there’s anyone who knows a thing or two about crypto custody, it’s Mike Belshe – CEO of BitGo, one of the ecosystem’s biggest custodians.  But of late, Belshe has been reflecting on where the industry is headed amid increasing saturation and ever-diminishing fees (and returns). The basic rules of economics state that competition (and increased supply) brings lower pricing. Yet some experts – including Belshe – say fees for custody won’t just fall, but actually crash to zero. To be fair, zero-fees in custody isn’t such an alien prospect; Xapo already offers free storage for its customers’ $5.5 billion of cryptocurrency.

Blockchain Capital onboards BitGo co-founder and Facebook veteran as its venture partner

Blockchain Capital now counts Facebook veteran and crypto entrepreneur Ben Davenport as its venture partner, firm partner Spencer Bogart told The Block. Davenport is a two-time founder and crypto investor. His first company, messaging service Beluga, was acquired by Facebook in 2011 and later became Facebook Messenger. The entrepreneur then spent three years at the social media company before jumping into the crypto world, having co-founded BitGo, a crypto custody firm. In 2018, Davenport left his post as CTO of BitGo and became the firm’s advisor. Meanwhile, he also invested in a number of crypto startups including Nomics, Lightning Labs, Kraken and Xapo, according to AngelList. According to Bogart, Davenport will work with Blockchain Capital's investment team on sourcing deals and evaluating investment opportunities.  “He will be working directly with the research and investments team to source opportunities, assist with due diligence, deploy capital and support companies in the Blockchain Capital portfolio,” said Bogart. “Ben brings his deep technical and industry knowledge as well as his experience as a two-time entrepreneur and long-time investor.” As one of the leading VC firms in the blockchain space, Blockchain Capital has a grip over a wide array of crypto projects and companies, including Circle, Messari, Bitwise, and Coinbase. It is also an investor in BitGo, which was how Davenport first got into contact with Blockchain Capital. “As a firm, we've been working with Ben since our 2014 investment in BitGo and have always had tremendous respect for his technical prowess, leadership skills, and investing acumen,” said Bogart.

Digital tokens resurrect with value addition after crypto winter

According to OnChainFX, the top 1o legitimate exchanges deliver the trading volume for measuring the real trading volume of the digital assets. Data collected from the LONG HASH website revealed that the majority of tokens had declined to half of their value since attaining the ATH. The most shocking results came out for ETHLend, based on the Ethereum blockchain that used the digital tokens in the form of collateral for transactions. LONG HASH quoted that ETHLend offered a decentralized peer-to-peer smart contract lending in the crypto-ecosystem. The ETH-based token was trending as the investors were constantly using ETH for transactions, which led to its surge before the bear attacks on the market. Tokens such as Holo and Ravencoin maintained their value equivalent to 50% of their ATH as they were initiated after the 2017 bull run. It came as a surprise for crypto users after tokens like Binance Coin and ChainLink underwent resurgence to achieve their ATH, that was higher than the previous ATH mark. Source: LONG HASH As per the graph, tokens achieved their ATHs from December 2017 to January 2018 and then plummeted. Many of the investors missed out on this bull rush in the crypto market. As the market conditions did not remain the same for a longer duration, tokens slipped into the phase, commonly known as the crypto winter, among the digital asset enthusiasts. LONG HASH shared growth rate of ChainLink and tweeted, “Chainlink (LINK) is having a pretty good day”. Some tokens like BNB and LINK have been performing well and the community can take comfort from this.
