"Our overall account growth was absolutely phenomenal," Sandler said at the time. "We saw participation across all segments. So whether it was corporations adopting it and putting assets on their balance sheet, or hedge funds beginning to approach this from a strategic perspective, registered investment advisors, family offices, ultra-high net worth individuals."

Sandler previously held positions at Coinbase as Director of International Sales and the New York Stock Exchange as Executive Vice President of Global Sales.
