Coinbase has acquired One River Digital Asset Management (ORDAM) to form the foundations of its asset management and investment advisory services.

As a part of the deal, ORDAM will assume the branding of Coinbase Asset Management (CBAM). However, it will function as an independent business.

According to Bloomberg, Coinbase participated in ORDAM’s financing round in 2021, which valued the firm at $186 million.

Coinbase Onboards Former SEC Chairman

Greg Tusar, the head of institutional product at Coinbase, says, “This is about wanting to bring more institutional capital into the world of crypto. We expect to build — on the other side of this crypto winter — an awesome asset-management business.”

The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of ORDAM, Eric Peters, will retain his position at Coinbase Asset Management as well. It is worth noting that Peters will continue serving as a CEO for One River Asset Management, the hedge fund that deals with traditional assets.

An interesting aspect of the deal is Jay Clayton, the former SEC chairman, will now work for CBAM. He currently serves as an advisor for ORDAM and will join to Coinbase as a part of the deal. Clayton led the crackdown on Initial Coin Offering (ICO) and sued Ripple during his tenure at the SEC.CRYPTOCASTER® - DECENTRALIZED FREEDOM!
