Greetings from Digital Wealth News™ !
Friends, a GINORMOUS week in the digital wealth sector as we wait for the Coinbase public offering to roll out on Wednesday. Many thought this day would never come and I recall being chided by the management team who bought our predecessor firm, FintekNews, over writing too much about Bitcoin. Ahhh, but times change, don’t they? Bitcoin has hit $63K on Tuesday and is increasingly being adopted by institutional investors as a core part of their holdings. Which leads me to our other big news this week – we have Mark Yusko of Morgan Creek Capital in a two-part series on our DWealth Muse podcast. Check out the topics host Dara Albright will cover with Yusko along with the link to the podcast below. And don’t forget to view our full roster of new original content this week on Digital Wealth News!
- In this week’s Wealthtech Insider column, we reconnect with Dr. Daniel Crosby, Chief Behavioral Officer at Orion Advisor Solutions, who discusses three ways to attack the behavior gap with wealthtech;
- In our new weekly Fintech Corner series from Practifi, we interview firm CCO Adrian Johnstone to discuss why RIA client experience can hinge on covering all the compliance bases’
- Bill Taylor of Entoro Wealth updates us on the markets this past week and movement in gold (which he is SO over), S&P 500, BTC & ETH in The Taylor Report (4/13/21).
We finish out the week with more great original content from the DWN editorial team and contributors, including the following posts:
