Worst business model ever.

Bitcoin doesn't need expensive vaults and it doesn't need the trust of a third party so let see ..

1) Put Bitcoins in expensive vaults where you have to trust a third party.
2) Huh
3) Profit

“Bitcoin is gaining traction,” he said. “This means the hardware infrastructure needs to be secured in the best possible way. A former bunker of the Swiss Army supplies all we need to give this desired level of security.”

Thats justy plainly wrong... The beauty of Bitcoin is that it is secured by everybody running bitcoind in their home or office, it doesnt need any physical security such as bunkers.
But an overkill place to store a paper wallet, maybe...

I thought Forbes was supposed to be where high net worth types go to get journalism related to increasing or maintaining high net worth? Almost every Bitcoin article they've published comes squarely under the category of what-not-to-do.
