1. How are wealth managers looking at crypto assets and the blockchain?

I think the crypto and digital assets space right now is exactly what the alternative space was in the early 1990s. If you look back, how a lot of institutional investors and high net worths got into the hedge fund, venture capital, private equity world was by investing in such funds, and over the years the industry has grown tremendously over the last 10-, 20-years. I think the same thing may happen in the digital asset space, where a lot of high net worth individual may want exposure to Bitcoin, but he doesn't necessarily know where to buy it. And I think crypto funds could be great opportunity for such individuals to actually wire fiat, and actually get exposure to sub-assets. And I believe for wealth managers and asset management firms, this is going to be great opportunity, not only to differentiate yourselves with your competitors, but also offering products to their clients in ways that they cannot easily access in other places.
