Hunter Merghart joins Bitstamp as Head of U.S. Operations

Dear Bitstamp customers,

I am happy to announce that Hunter Merghart is joining the Bitstamp team as Head of U.S. Operations.

Hunter’s background in both traditional financial markets and cryptocurrency positions him as the ideal person to lead our U.S. operations, which includes making sure our retail and institutional investors have a platform and service that is on par with what they would find at any traditional exchange anywhere in the world.

We recently obtained a BitLicense, which grants us permission to continue our digital currency operations in the state of New York. We are committed to growing in the U.S. and developing a better environment for all crypto businesses, both in the U.S. and worldwide.

Hunter brings extensive leadership and industry knowledge, and he is joining Bitstamp at a time of strategic growth. He will lead the opening of Bitstamp’s New York office and our expansion across the U.S.

Please join us in welcoming Hunter Merghart to the team.

Nejc Kodrič
CEO, Bitstamp
