Company Serving 100,000 Wealth Managers Can Now Invest In Bitcoin Via NYDIG Partnership

SIMON Markets LLC has stricken a partnership with New York Digital Investment Group LLC (NYDIG) where they will be collaborating on a custody offering, offering features like bitcoin-backed borrowing, reported Business Wire.
