Wall Street professionals still drawn to crypto startups

Wall Street sign

Harish Gupta started his career at Morgan Stanley as an intern four years ago. Now he has one of the bank’s former stars and another veteran on the advisory board of his crypto startup, Polybird.

Bloomberg News reports that Raj Dhanda, who runs real-estate investment firm Black Creek Group, spent more than two decades at Morgan Stanley and left in 2016 after leading capital markets. He was named a Polybird adviser in a statement on Wednesday. His former colleague Patrick Springer is also on the board of advisers.

Even as Bitcoin prices have crashed, longtime Wall Street executives keep jumping to smaller startups and joining boards.
