DAS: NYC will bring together financial institutions, family offices, financial advisers, investment banks, crypto protocols, exchanges, RIAs, hedge funds, prime brokers, venture capitalists and other industry professionals to discuss how digital assets can evolve and be recognized as a macro asset.

- State Street Digital, Vice President
