FEATURING: Patrick Sells from NYDIG and Stephen Bohanon from Alkami

According to a report by J.P. Morgan, close to 300 banks are planning to roll out Bitcoin trading on mobile apps in the first half of 2022.  Another study finds that 44% of regional and global banks will offer crypto support by the end of the year.

More than ever, the share of a consumer’s wallet is at risk. The question is how will banks and credit unions respond at a time when differentiation and deploying digital solutions is no longer optional?

We are very fortunate to have Patrick Sells, chief innovation officer for NYDIG, back on the Banking Transformed podcast. He is joined by Stephen Bohanon, co-founder and chief strategy officer at Alkami. They discuss the opportunities and challenges of traditional banks offering integrated Bitcoin solutions.
