Harumi Interviewed on Financial Fox by Stefania
In this episode of Financial Fox, Stefania Barbaglio reconnected with Harumi Urata-Thompson, acting CFO at Celsius Network. Celsius is a blockchain-based all-in-one cryptocurrency banking and lending platform for cryptocurrency users, as retailers and as financial institutions.
In this lively conversation, Harumi navigates through the role of financial institutions and the crypto world by describing the unique offering of the Celsius platform. In recent months, traditional financial institutions have been moving into the crypto space with more enthusiasm.
For example, in December 2020, UK-based Ruffer Investment confirmed it had $744M in Bitcoin. This trend has been growing among firms who view Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies as an asset for diversifying their portfolio. This is also an important milestone for cryptocurrency to establish itself as a reliable store of value and potentially to reach mainstream adoption.
