The ex-Coinbase executive used to support US clients spanning traditional finance (hedge funds, asset managers, endowments, venture capital firms, HNWIs, corporates, family offices) and crypto-native firms (mining companies, DeFi and NFT projects) as they looked to trade and custody digital assets.
