Monarch Blockchain Corporation welcomes crypto advocate attorney Bob Cornish as its outside counsel. Bob, who is Of Counsel at national Law firm Wilson Elser, has 25 years of experience in the financial services and broker-dealer space.

These banks are for business depositors only and will have optional FDIC insurance. Wyoming hopes these laws will not only bring in US-based businesses but global businesses as well.

Bob has also served as chief legal ad compliance officer for prominent investment firms.
