Episode 53 - How Institutional Investors Can Start Trading Digital Assets - Blockchain Disruption

People need marketplaces to conduct trades in the fast evolving digital asset world. Crypto and digital assets have provided completely new investment vehicles, but the infrastructure and ecosystems needed to support these investment activities are still in development.

Additionally, institutional investors are interested in digital assets but don’t trust many of the existing digital asset platforms. In this interview, we talk with Brian Liston, Co-Founder of Seed CX, a digital asset exchange working to build an investing infrastructure for institutional investors to participate in digital asset and crypto investing. We discuss how firms can leverage platforms to participate in digital asset investing, what the future of crypto assets looks like, and what you should be on the lookout for in the near term.

About Brian: Brian co-founded Seed CX and currently serves as Chief Operating Officer. Prior to Seed CX, Brian was an analyst at Red Sea Ventures, where he was responsible for securing and assessing new investment opportunities in early-stage technology companies in New York and Boston. Brian was formerly Financial Analyst at Accenture Consulting and Skype. He holds a B.S. in Economics & Finance with a specialization in Mathematics & Statistics from the University College (Dublin).

About Seed CX: Seed CX is the first digital asset exchange to be solely focused on the needs of institutional investors. Through its subsidiaries, Seed CX offers a licensed exchange for institutional trading and settlement of spot digital asset products, and plans to offer a market for CFTC-regulated digital asset derivatives. Seed CX provides the market safeguards, technology infrastructure, and regulatory compliance required to give institutions the confidence to trade digital assets (aka Cryptocurrencies).

What you will learn in this episode:

  • What digital asset exchanges do for investors and how they are working to drive adoption of crypto asset and digital asset trading.
  • How institutional investors and firms can leverage platforms to participate in digital asset investing.
  • What compliance issues face the industry and how investors should be thinking about a shift to digital asset investing and exchange.
