Stephan Schurmann pioneered the Launch of the Blockchain Domestic Asset Protection Trust (BDAPT)

Traditional Domestic Asset Protection Trusts (DAPTs) are expensive and limited by jurisdictional constraints and legal complexities, particularly in the United States, states Stephan Schurmann. In contrast, BDAPT offers a decentralized alternative, free from the legal limitations of any single jurisdiction, ensuring enhanced privacy and protection from federal legal issues.

Blockchain Bank & Trust Companies are not Banks under the Federal Bank Holding Company Act.

“Blockchain Domestic Asset Protection Trust, created by Stephan Schurmann”

Therefore, a trust company’s parent company does not classify as a bank holding company. The Federal Reserve does not regulate a DECENTRALIZED Blockchain Trust or Blockchain Bank or its affiliates. Their affiliates can do various activities without many restrictions.

Moreover, a Blockchain Bank & Trust company could potentially be a useful part of the overall corporate structure of such a business, if such a business model included fiduciary aspects or required the safekeeping of assets. Decentralized Blockchain Trust & Blockchain Banks can accept both FIAT and CRYPTO deposits. This allows them to expand their deposit-taking activities. It also enables them to access affordable funding through warranties.

These decentralized Blockchain Trust companies and Blockchain Banks have special powers and are not subject to all the rules that banks have to follow. This makes them appealing to asset and wealth managers and traditional fiduciaries. Today, we use the old trust charter in new ways and find it helpful for modern financial services with advanced blockchain technologies.
