Augur deployment on the main Ethereum network will require the migration of all current REP token balances to a new REP token contract. It will happen on July 9. The automatic migration of REP balances will kick off with an indefinite freeze of the current REP token contract. The new token contract will be placed inside the genesis Augur universe.

REP holders and users of exchanges (centralized or non-custodial decentralized) don't need to take any actions to prepare for the migration. For special kinds of exchanges like EtherDelta, ForkDelta, IDEX and OasisDEX the users are advised to withdraw their REP funds from the exchange contract until July 9.

The migration should not take more than a few hours, and once Augur is deployed and migration is finalized, the platform goes live on the main Ethereum network. As for the market parameters of Augur, at the moment of publication they are as follows:

Average price 38.88 USD
Market cap 427,666,800 USD
Volume (24H) 24,545,100 USD

Prime Trust announced the launch of the cryptocurrency custody service. This is reported by the Coindesk.

It became known that as early as the middle of July, the bitcoin storage service became available to customers, and next week support for Ethereum and ERC-20 tokens will be added.

In cryptographic storages, the access key to the wallet is stored either on a secure device not connected to the network or on paper in a safe.

Recently, information has appeared that several financial market mastodons, including Goldman Sachs, Northern Trust and Intercontinental Exchange, plan to provide custodian services for cryptocurrencies. However, according to Prime Trust head Scott Purcell, they were able to get ahead of the above-mentioned organizations.

They are trillion-dollar Fortune 100 entities, and they are just not going to move that fast. "We had had an engineering breakthrough which now enables us to easily cold-storage any ERC-20 token (along with BTC and ETH, of course).
