Grayscale officially tweeted that Dave LaValle was appointed as Grayscale’s new global head of ETFs. Dave LaValle said in an interview that at Nasdaq, my first exposure to cryptocurrency was in the initial iterations of work, when I was trying to find a way to launch a physically-backed bitcoin ETF.
The transformative nature of Bitcoin as a concept is very similar to the rise of the internet in the late 1990s. At the time, the concept was new, unique, not well understood and somewhat mysterious. It piqued my curiosity and gave me the opportunity to learn more and to continue following the development and evolution of Bitcoin.
