This week, we feature a conversation between Chris Nichols and Patrick Sells on how community banks should be thinking about bitcoin.

Patrick Sells serves as the Head of NYDIG's Bank Solutions business, building upon the momentum from NYDIG's efforts to bring the needed technological infrastructure for banks to be able to offer Bitcoin products and services such as custody, rewards programs and lending opportunities. Prior to joining NYDIG, Patrick served as Chief Innovation Officer at Quontic Bank, where he evolved the firm into a leading adaptive digital bank in the U.S. through a focus on technology and innovation. In 2020, Patrick was recognized as American Banker’s "Digital Banker of the Year" and one of Independent Community Bankers of America's "40 under 40 Emerging Community Bank Leaders."
