“They’ll come in, they’ll call and ask, ‘What are we doing? What should we look at? There are a lot of consumers out there who are crypto-curious, and that’s no different for our members. They’re looking for information and education about, ‘What is cryptocurrency? How does it all work?’”
On the regulatory challenges, Ingram said that Achieva was always among the top to follow the legislative steps and also said that it also works under the same regulatory line.
“From a compliance regulation standpoint, that’s always part of our focus, of really ensuring that we are working with those experts who know what’s coming.”
