Staats CryptoCurrency Consulting BBB Business Review

A note about storing cryptocurrency:  I recommend anyone with a meaningful value of digital assets to use cold storage while using a third party to hold their private keys such as Kingdom Trust or Bitgo.  Custodians are used to protect against physical theft. Private keys should never be in one place or at home.



I was skeptical to reach out to Shane, and I seemed to have a mental block on actually getting going in the crypo game. However, after having a video call with Shane all of my reservations evaporated. It was very clear to me that he was both knowledgeable, and was putting my interests first in the recommendations he made for me. I am a hard person to impress, but I can give a solid thumbs up for Shane. Very professional!
