“These appointments in combination with our highly talented incumbent board are another important step by CoinShares on the path to up-listing to the regulated segment of NASDAQ OMX,” Masters added.
Crypto and Traditional Finance
In the last 10 months, global adoption of digital assets has increased substantially. Several leading executives from traditional finance joined digital asset firms to accelerate the growth of the crypto economy.
“I have been invested in CoinShares’ products since 2015 and have been impressed by CoinShares’ track record across all its business areas. For many years I have had a strong belief that great businesses will be made in the intersection of the crypto-economy and traditional finance and CoinShares is one of the best-positioned technology companies for this megatrend,” Fritzén said.
“I am excited to join the Board of CoinShares at such an exciting time in the Company’s journey. I hope to contribute to the Group’s continued success,” Rankin commented.
