The BCI Summit focuses on six major areas in cryptocurrency investment. The first is valuation: investors will learn techniques utilized to model strengths, weaknesses, and the value of cryptocurrency. Investors will also learn about the pricing of cryptocurrency investments and cryptocurrency inter-dependence and monetary fluctuation. They will also learn how to make their portfolio as lucrative and safe as possible, with diversification (the amount of exposure investors should allow in their portfolios), hedging (how to protect cryptocurrency investments in case of a downturn or market correction), and security (how to evaluate risks, threats, and cautionary measures). Even further, investors will learn how to best report their investments.

Greater institutional participation in the digital asset markets requires secure and regulated custody solutions. We are impressed by BitGo’s product, unique services, and the management team. We view our investment in BitGo as an exciting opportunity to contribute to the evolution of this critical market infrastructure.
