Institutional Investing in Crypto Assets
Managing Cryptocurrencies in a Traditional Financial Ecosystem
Zach Hamilton, Managing Partner of Airfoil Capital plans to walk through how institutional investors should approach cryptocurrencies. His talk will cover everything from research to trading psychology. He writes, “While cryptos are an amazing new asset class, they don’t behave like anything else. Attempting to shoehorn them into the traditional financial system can be complex and unprofitable.”
