167: Crypto’s not dead—and never assume anything w/ Bobby Cho

Aaron Fifield Podcast Leave a Comment



Bobby Cho is the global head of trading at Cumberland—which is the crypto arm of Chicago trading firm, DRW and it’s one of the largest liquidity providers in the space. Prior to this, Bobby was director of trading at itBit and vice president of trading at Digital Currency Group (formerly known as SecondMarket).

After featuring on the podcast in August last year, I thought it would be fitting to check in with Bobby again, because of the events which have unfolded in cryptocurrency markets over the past 12 months…

Our conversation begins with some of the highlights from the recent Cumberland Summit—which was an industry event for insiders, and Cumberland’s international expansion. Then we get into Bitcoin’s sudden rise and decline from $20k, whether or not crypto markets have matured, decentralised exchanges, crypto’s value and use cases, institutional involvement and the bigger picture moving forward.
