While big players like Coinbase, Bakkt and Consensus make most of the headlines in Crypto and on Crypto Twitter there are some institutional players that have been quietly operating in the background for years in the Bitcoin market. One such player is Jump Trading and it’s affiliate venture capital firm, Jump Capital. Jump Trading is one of the most active traders in the digital asset world and also one of the most discrete. Leading investments on the Crypto side at it’s sister firm Jump Capital is Peter Johnson — a principal at the firm who joined The Scoop to discuss the firm’s origin story in Crypto, we also dove into the firm’s Crypto incubator at the University of Illinois Champaign and we talked about the trends Johnson is expecting to play out in 2019. I hope you enjoy the episode.
