Iconic has realized a tremendous amount of growth in 2019. From kicking off the new year by onboarding HTGF as a new investor and completing an arduous rebranding process, all the way up to the most recent developments of securing Cryptology as an investor and the imminent launch of Iconic Funds’ index funds and ETPs, there is a great deal this company, its team and community have to be proud of and excited for. This doesn’t even touch the fact that the launch of AMaaS looms as well.
What makes me most proud, however, is the quality of people Iconic attracts, not only as investors and community members, which I dare say are the best in the world, but the high-caliber people wanting to join the Iconic family to help drive the adoption of crypto assets. We have the best crypto management team in the world which is only emboldened by adding 6 new core team members, bringing the Iconic team’s total size to 16! They have all begun their Iconic journey today or in the last month. I am very excited to introduce them to you, and even more excited to have them contribute to the growth of Iconic!
Without further ado, please help me welcoming the newest Iconic team members!
