Ep18: Institutional Interest in Cryptocurrency with Michael Moro

It used to be that bitcoin was just for quirky libertarian computer scientists but somehow the virus has spread gradually into big money.

How something that was never advertised goes from nothing to over $100 billion market cap in 10 years and ushers in an entirely new digital currency asset class is mind-boggling to me.

So, it is particularly interesting to people who watched it happen. Michael Moro has been involved with bitcoin trading before the infamous Mount Gox hack and has watched it mature to where it is today.

In this episode, he will take us on that journey and use that perspective on the future of institutional interest in cryptocurrency.


Michael Moro serves as the CEO of Genesis, responsible for planning and executing the strategic vision for the firm. Previously, he served as Chief Operating Officer for Genesis and was responsible for overseeing all day-to-day operations. He started his career at Citi in investment banking, covering financial institutions and finance companies.
