Former JPMorgan Trader’s Crypto Pivot

Danny Masters ran JPMorgan’s commodities trading business in the 1990s; he is a strong believer in ICOs as a better mousetrap compared to IPOs stating, “I’ve raised for companies — angel, friends and family, series A, series B stuff — and it’s a real pain in the arse. It’s slow, it’s time-consuming, it’s duplicative. It’s a really heavy duty process. I know some great companies who’ve raised £5 million, £10 million and they’ve spent thousands of man hours doing it.”; he also notes that there is a lack of quality ICOs and they have funded only a dozen; Masters setup a fund called Global Advisors which pivoted to crypto in 2014.
