Bitcoin IRA Wins Key Legal Battle Against Kingdom Trust – PRNewswire

LOS ANGELES, Nov. 14, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Bitcoin IRA, the world’s first, largest and most secure digital asset IRA technology company that allows clients to purchase cryptocurrencies for their retirement accounts, today announced that a federal Judge in South Dakota District Court entered an order against Kingdom Trust Company, granting Bitcoin IRA’s request for emergency injunctive relief that in large part was sought for the protection of its clients.

The federal Judge recognized the need to protect Bitcoin IRA’s clients and their ability to use its technology platform as she stated in the ruling that “Kingdom Trust unilaterally terminated customers’ access to their own account data on Bitcoin IRA’s website, and it has not shown that the interference is justified.”

As a result of the ruling Kingdom Trust must:

  • Fully restore data access to all affected Bitcoin IRA clients
  • Reinstate Bitcoin IRA’s ADR status as your chosen Account Designated Representative 

The official order from the federal court Judge reads as follows:

“Kingdom Trust is ordered to fully restore to the condition and functionality existing prior to August 21, 2019, Alternative IRA Services LLC’s (Bitcoin IRA) access to account holder data of the accounts to which Bitcoin IRA is the account designated representative by the account holder, and account holder access to Bitcoin IRA’s online platform, thereby allowing the account holders to once again self-direct their retirement accounts online 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.”

Chris Kline, COO and co-founder of Bitcoin IRA responded to the ruling:

“This is a major win and aims to stop Kingdom Trust from holding our client’s accounts hostage. Our clients and their digital assets are our top priority. We are thankful the court helped protect these critical interests and allow our clients to continue to utilize our best-in-class technology platform to buy and sell cryptocurrency for their self-directed IRAs.”

The lawsuit has not kept Bitcoin IRA from developing all-new products. In the last few months, the company has launched several major initiatives and has many exciting new product launches coming up.
