Crypto is luring financial executives

More and more financial executives are transitioning to crypto. Jihan Wu, the CEO, and co-founder of Bitmain, the world’s most prominent computer chip firm for Bitcoin mining, was formerly a financial analyst at an equity company.

In August 2020, Goldman Sachs appointed Matthew McDermott, a managing director who oversaw the investment bank’s funding activities, as global head of digital assets.

The 46-year-old who is based in London has worked in the long-established financial market. He envisions the world’s financial resources living on electronic ledgers. McDermott is exploring the application of ledger technology in the enormous credit and mortgage market.

In an interview, he revealed that it is likely that assets and liabilities would be congenital to blockchain. Yet, other banks and established investors need to agree, he claims. To achieve his aim, McDermott regularly communicates with JPMorgan and Facebook, the social network that recently updated its cryptocurrency game plan.

Deloitte’s 2020 Global Blockchain Survey, which encompassed almost 1,500 executives, indicates that blockchain uncertainties are diminishing. It proves that business innovators view it as essential to organizational transformation.
