John Dalby has taken up a similar position at NYDIG. In his opinion, every day more and more industries are realizing the potential of bitcoin, and more and more customers are looking for ways to securely access digital assets.
Robert Gutmann, Co-founder and CEO of NYDIG, said, “The NYDIG team and I are extremely excited to welcome John. His kindness, curiosity, and humility, combined with his deep financial services experience, are a perfect match for NYDIG as we continue to build institutional Bitcoin solutions.
John Dalby left the post of CFO of one of the largest hedge funds in the world – Bridgewater Associates and received a similar position at the cryptocurrency investment company NYDIG. Dalby noted that NYDIG’s growth has been “incredible.” In his opinion, every day more and more industries are realizing the potential of bitcoin, and more and more customers are looking for ways to securely access it.
“I share NYDIG’s vision of Bitcoin’s ability to contribute to economic empowerment for all,” Dalby added.
Ross Stevens, Founder and Executive Chairman of NYDIG, said, “Yesterday, employers of choice recognized that supporting 401ks and health insurance was table stakes to attract and retain top talent. Today, employers of choice also recognize the importance of supporting Bitcoin.
John’s move to NYDIG showcases an increasing trend of top talent voting with their feet to propel Bitcoin’s inclusionary role as the De(Central) Bank, and its dual mandate as ultimate risk-on asset and the ultimate risk-off asset. I join Robby in enthusiastically welcoming John to NYDIG.”
Earlier in Bridgewater Associates stated that the fund is ready to invest in bitcoin, but only after its volatility decreases and liquidity increases.
