“After a wonderful three plus years at Bakkt, next week will be my last. I enjoyed working at the intersection of cryptocurrencies and markets, and it’s nice to see the industry find a balance between innovation and regulation. There is still a lot to be done here, but I have never been so optimistic about the future, ”he wrote.
White has worked at Bakkt since the platform was founded – in 2018, the specialist was named COO. Prior to that, he served as Vice President and Head of Institutional Business at Coinbase.
Bakkt went public in October 2021, completing the merger of SPAC VPC Impact Acquisition Holdings. Its shares are listed on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) under the ticker BKKT.
Bakkt stocks reacted to news of White’s resignation with a slight drop, but by the time of writing has already recovered and is trading near $ 9.
