David Siemer, Co-Founder of Wavemaker Partners, a cross-border venture capital firm, dual headquartered in Los Angeles and Singapore, published his State of Crypto Global Overview. In recent months, Siemer deliberated the implications and impact of cyptocurrency on global industry and economic organization, as well as the potential growth of the space. Investors also seek carefully sourced data about the strength of the sector and representation in the space.
“Never before has there been such a large sector, with so much growth potential, that was simultaneously so misunderstood,” noted Siemer. “I went on a speaking tour to educate the world’s top investors and financiers and thought that I should share my findings with the public.”
Bitcoin and cryptocurrency have been dominating the headlines these last few week. (If I could have a bitcoin for every time I heard a person mutter why they hadn’t invested months ago, I’d have myself a tidy sum.) Understanding these sectors and their potential is now fundamental for investors, technology and finance leaders and public policy makers.
