SolidX Partners CEO Daniel Gallancy joined us for a discussion of Bitcoin, institutional investors and how his company is working on creating a bridge between the two. While there is no question that interest in cryptocurrencies has risen dramatically – also among the financial elite, there is still a big chasm separating the two worlds. With Daniel we explore how it could be bridged, when it will happen and what the consequences could be.

Topics covered in this episode:

  • How SolidX offers institutional investors exposure to bitcoin using Total Return Swaps
  • The perception of Bitcoin on Wall Street
  • The relationship between VC investments and direct bitcoin purchases
  • If a derivatives market could undermine the security of Bitcoin
