  • “Well, first of all I think it’s real.
  • I think you know this is a business that had what 200 billion dollars worth of crypto value two years ago and it’s two and a half trillion dollars today and growing so I think while many people are skeptics – I do not fall in that category – I think now I see it as as real.
  • Now I think the regulatory environment that isn’t there yet in its final form and will have to be there at some point I think will come in and will help I think transition this asset class into something new.
  • From our perspective I think we look at the ecosystem around crypto and I think we are investing in that ecosystem that could be that’s in the blockchain technology, energy usage, etc.”
