Fidelity May Formally Launch Its Crypto Custody Service in March (coindesk.com)
Fidelity Investments’ new crypto custody service may officially launch in March.
The storage component of Fidelity Digital Asset Services LLC is already live, with some assets under management, a person familiar with the situation told CoinDesk Tuesday.
Bloomberg reported, in a story initially available only on its terminals, that Fidelity was aiming for March for a formal launch.
A March launch would fit the timeframe previously given by Tom Jessop, the executive in charge of FDAS, who told CoinDesk in December that it would open for business sometime in the first quarter of 2019.
It is unclear when the other part of FDAS – brokering trades of crypto assets between Fidelity clients and market makers – will launch.
The financial services giant revealed last fall that it was building a crypto trading and storage platform.
At the time, Jessop said that some of its institutional clients were interested in entering the crypto space, but “Needed a trusted platform provider” first.

CryptoNewsTLDR is a cryptocurrency news aggregate, bringing you the latest news in quick-to-read summaries.
Thanks to recent breakthroughs in text algorithms we’re able to reduce news articles to their most important sentences, saving you time every single day.
How does it work?
CryptoNewsTLDR is powered by SMMRY.
It works to reduce text to core sentences. It achieves this by:
• Ranking sentences by importance using the core algorithm.
• Reorganizing the summary to focus on a topic; by selection of a keyword.
• Removing transition phrases.
• Removing unnecessary clauses.
• Removing excessive examples.
The core algorithm summarizes in 7 simple steps:
1) Associate words with their grammatical counterparts. (e.g. “city” and “cities”)
2) Calculate the occurrence of each word in the text.
3) Assign each word with points depending on their popularity.
4) Detect which periods represent the end of a sentence. (e.g “Mr.” does not).
5) Split up the text into individual sentences.
6) Rank sentences by the sum of their words’ points.
7) Return X of the most highly ranked sentences in chronological order.
