18 Months Later: A Conversation with Patrick Sells, Chief Innovation Officer at NYDIG

It has been 18 months since Keith Daly, Director – Banking & Fintech Search at Travillian, last spoke on camera with Patrick Sells, Chief Innovation Officer at NYDIG. In January 2021, Patrick was just embarking on his “Bitcoin for All” mission at NYDIG. Since then, NYDIG has raised over a $1B in new funding, signed numerous partnership agreements – including FIS, FISERV, Jack Henry, Q2 – and expanded into new products and markets. In this time, Patrick was promoted to Chief Innovation Officer and has learned a massive amount about the Bitcoin adoption challenges and opportunities for community banks & credit unions.

In this chat, we discuss:

  • Patrick’s insights & feedback for Bitcoin adoption from executives at community banks and credit unions
  • Importance of proper Risk and Compliance professionals to successfully launch innovative technology products at your firm
  • What’s next for NYDIG?
