Greetings from Digital Wealth News™ !
Our latest exploits this past weekend took us to Museum of the Rockies, where we learned that Montana is one of the largest sources of dinosaur and other ancient critter fossils on the planet. Turns out it used to be tropical up here (as we look at the snow coming down this 4th day of spring), and there was a huge waterway up in these parts a few hundred million years ago (me and a “friend” below).
On the digital wealth front, this week we’ve learned that last week’s $350M VC deal for Blockfi that I was so gobsmacked about, was just a mere little sneeze, compared to this week’s largest VC deal, topping out at $893M (debt). I predicted a $1B deal was just around the corner this year, and it looks like that’s now about to come true. Indeed, we’ve blown past two huge $5B SPAC deals in fintech straight to $10B with the latest news on the TORO SPAC deal, which was announced earlier this week.
