The digital asset ecosystem is characterized by the interaction, interplay, and organization of a variety of forces. Its decentralized nature allows for the alignment of incredibly diverse people and organizations. It is the ultimate marketplace of ideas where its myriad of disparate inputs makes the ecosystem robust and innovative. This also makes it incredibly difficult to predict and interpret, requiring a measured look from multiple disciplines including finance, capital markets, technology, legal, and regulatory, to name a few. In an industry as new as this, collaboration from dissimilar and often contrasting viewpoints is welcomed and crucial to its success.
