Digital Asset Consulting

Connecting the worlds of cryptocurrency and traditional finance

Our Mission

Bridging Separate Worlds

Sweetwater Digital Asset Consulting bridges the worlds of non-commercial, open-source, grass-roots, cypherpunk cryptocurrency projects and legacy wealth management, structural asset protection, estate planning, and institutional investing.  These very separate worlds rarely interact on a level beyond the superficial, resulting in mutual misunderstanding and missed opportunities on both sides.  With top-notch credentials and credibility within both traditional portfolio management and decentralized cryptocurrency communities, Sweetwater Digital Asset Consulting offers guidance to clients who have the potential to substantially benefit from genuine engagement with the “other” side.

Early Adopter Clients

Just a few critical years ago, you had the intelligence to understand the mechanics of Nakamoto consensus, the foresight to envision the growth of your cryptocurrency’s community, and the courage to act financially on your convictions. You’ve figured out self-custody and have avoided the many technical pitfalls that have trapped others along the way. Congratulations. But are you ready for the world outside of crypto?

Conventional Asset Clients

As a portfolio manager, you can’t ignore the historical performance of cryptocurrency, yet you have numerous questions and concerns.  Is cryptocurrency a legitimate innovation or an overhyped fad?  Which “risk bucket” does it fit within?  What valuation frameworks can provide insight on its current pricing?  How does one choose among the thousands of competing cryptocurrency projects?  Finally, is there anyone with solid credentials who can help you to navigate and understand this space without charging three-and-thirty?
