Matthew Gertler will be speaking to the ever-changing world of cryptocurrency, getting us up-to-date on the latest issues and opportunities in the space, and making sure his fellow Bruins have a better understanding of how digital currency impacts global business.

Meet the Speaker:

I became interested in FinTech while working in the legal department of Venmo, where I helped the company apply for money transmitter licenses. The following year I submitted comments to the original draft of the BitLicense, which was similar in many ways to the NY Money Transmitter License. Ever since, I have been involved in the cryptocurrency industry, focusing on the laws and regulations affecting digital assets and related companies.

At Reserve, I lead the project's regulatory strategy and serve as the main point of contact for everything legal. Before Reserve, I co-founded and served as General Counsel and Senior Analyst at Digital Asset Research, an independent cryptocurrency research firm for institutional investors. Prior to DAR, I was an Associate in the alternative investments practice group at Milbank, Tweed, Hadley & McCloy and an Associate at Promontory Financial Group.

I present regularly on the legal and compliance issues surrounding financial technology companies, with an emphasis on topics related to cryptocurrencies. I have been quoted in several publications, including the Wall Street Journal, U.S. News, L.A. Times, and CoinDesk.
