More
People are anxious for insitutions to start investing in Bitcoin for good reason - the influx of money will drive the price to the moon. But what are the real barriers to institutional adoption? How should large companies manage their private keys, deal with insurance and custody, or protect themselves against confidence scams?

Bitcoin is revolutionary technology because it allows a way to electronically transfer funds without trusting a third party. But what happens when you need to interact with the off-chain world?
