Nevada Financial Institutions Division Statement Regarding Prime Trust LLC

June 22, 2023

The Nevada Financial Institutions Division (“NFID”) was actively monitoring the solvency of Prime Trust, LLC (“Prime”) in anticipation of a potential acquisition or merger. Ultimately, Prime failed to safeguard assets under its custody and cannot meet all client withdrawals. As such, Prime has breached its fiduciary duties to its clients, in violation of Nevada trust laws. NFID’s primary objective is to preserve any enterprise value remaining in Prime for the benefit of Prime’s clients.

On June 21, 2023, NFID issued a Cease-and-Desist Order (“C&D”) to Prime to cease and desist from accepting fiat and cryptocurrency from existing and new clients for custody purposes. The C&D can be located at NFID’s website at under enforcement actions.
