Timing is Everything

“If you rang up a bank and said, ‘Look, I really understand blockchain, I understand bitcoin, I’ve been to these talks and I think it’s very interesting for OTC markets, because OTC markets don’t have a register of securities’ — there aren’t enough people doing this. There are more banks that want people and less people doing it.”

To John Edge, managing partner at RRVIG, the current technological climate represents a chance for young people to jump into financial markets if they can demonstrate mastery of digital innovations, specifically blockchain, “which no one understands in any sense.” As the industry decentralizes, the task for the emerging professional is finding the links between those new technologies and their applications in finance. One cannot be behind in the game if the game is just beginning.
