Since passing crypto-friendly regulations and a crypto banking charter, Wyoming has become a magnet for companies looking to thrive in the digital assets space. Our real visionary for this episode is Caitlin Long, a Wall Street veteran whose efforts have been central to the Cowboy State’s remarkable rise in the world of crypto. Long reveals how she initially “saw the crypto light” and why the 2008 Financial Crisis helped spark her curiosity and the “alternative schools of economic thought” that led her to Bitcoin. As the founder and CEO of Avanti Bank & Trust, Long and her team are on a mission to create and successfully implement a banking solution that will connect digital assets with the legacy financial system. Just how long will it be before crypto banks are the new reality?
