Our story

It starts with an idea: the solution to asset safety and management for digital assets already exists. It’s trusts and custody. But no-one knows how to apply it to a new, fast-moving and entirely digital asset class. First Digital Trust was built out of this realization in 2017, under the umbrella of Legacy Trust Company. We brought together skills from the traditional financial world and knowledge of the digital assets economy to offer open finance solutions. After spinning off and becoming our own company in 2019, First Digital Trust became a fully independent public trust company headquartered in Hong Kong.
