Trusted/safe infrastructure for institutions is just one small step on the journey to building the #cryptoeconomy.
Whether institutions were going to adopt crypto or not was an open question about 12 months ago. I think it's safe to say we now know the answer. We're seeing $200-400M a week in new crypto deposits come in from institutional customers.
Coinbase Custody is now the #1 crypto custodian for institutions! https://blog.coinbase.com/coinbase-custody-acquires-xapos-institutional-business-becoming-the-world-s-largest-crypto-2c1 b46fc94c4 Excited to carry on the torch with Xapo's institutional business, one of the great early crypto companies.

Or maybe back to the future in some ways. https://kittyhawk.aero/ is a good example of a team working toward this. Safety will keep getting better, noise lower, etc...should ideally be able to go point to point and never look up from a good book.
Apparently there was a helicopter airline from the Ferry Building to SFO in the 1960s. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/San_Francisco_and_Oakland_Helicopter_Airlines Would be amazing if travel keeps improving and people can get dropped right at their destinations in the future.

Having a regulated, trusted, custodian in cryptocurrency has been a huge unlock for the industry.
The institutional space for crypto is going through a period of incredible growth. Many still don't realize it. Coinbase Custody now has close to 200 institutional customers, onboarding hundreds of millions of $ in crypto a week.

Come help build the cryptoeconomy! Cryptocurrency is growing quickly as as a way to pay online (and in some cases in stores) around the world. https://twitter.com/CommerceCB/status/1149792571339825157
Bitcoin is inherently global just like the internet, so it doesn't mind where the value is captured. Huge opportunity for those with the forsight to recognize it.
The U.S. could lead the world in that transition, and unlock tons of economic growth (just like the U.S. benefitted massively from major internet companies being built here) or another country could beat us there and build the next financial center outside of NY.
Of course, the president of every country we should expect to talk their own book! That's their job. But currencies that are controlled by one country are always going to be at a disadvantage vs trans-national currencies. https://www.nytimes.com/2018/12/18/business/dealbook/digital-reserve-currency.html
Some more thoughts on this. This is the common first reaction of most people when they learn about Bitcoin (yes Bitcoin Bitcoin Bitcoin) and cryptocurrency generally. It means they have begun down the path toward learning more...so it's a good sign.

Achievement unlocked! I dreamt about a sitting U.S. president needing to respond to growing cryptocurrency usage years ago. "First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win”. We just made it to step 3 y'all. https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1149472282584072192
