"We're seeing another wave of Bitcoin interest, largely driven by business and institutional adoption. It's not fueled by hype. This year's bank failures and bailouts have been a wake-up call, revealing the cracks of the traditional financial system and reminding us why Bitcoin is so important- it's a secure path to a stronger and more transparent global economy. Adopting Bitcoin with a trusted partner is no longer the speculative choice, but rather the prudent one," said Alex Leishman, River CEO, in a press release.
