Cryptocurrency Investment Firm Relocates Headquarters to Miami

The South Florida area continues to attract digital currency companies looking to capitalize on the region’s growth potential. The latest cryptocurrency company to call Miami home is BlockTower Capital, an investment firm focused on cryptocurrency and blockchain technology.

“BlockTower Capital’s new headquarters in the Brickell Financial District will be home to a diverse and talented group of employees involved in all facets of investment management, computer engineering, and data analytics, creating new opportunities for our local workforce and helping to accelerate the growth of our finance and technology ecosystems,” says Miami Downtown Development Authority Board Member and Pipeline Workspaces Co-Founder Philippe Houdard.

The firm recently announced plans to relocate all personnel and physical office space from New York City to Miami, with strategies to expand and hire talent in the local job market as part of its growth and investment approach. The relocation to Miami coincides with BlockTower’s recent acquisition of Gamma Point Capital, a San Francisco-based market-neutral crypto investment fund.

“Miami represents the intersection of important trends and values, not only for BlockTower as a company in our own business, but also for the world more broadly,” says Matthew Goetz, CEO of BlockTower. “It’s a special opportunity to base our firm in a place that so uniquely combines the best of the financial investment community and the tech innovation community and we look forward to helping catalyze that ecosystem here with our brand and relationships across both the public and private sectors going forward.”

Miami Mayor Francis Suarez has strived to turn the city into a market for cryptocurrency companies to thrive in. He has pushed the state to enact financial regulation for cryptocurrency while implementing a regulatory environment that caters to the new technology.

“Cryptocurrency and blockchain are here to stay,” Mayor Suarez says. “One in five Americans now hold a form of crypto, blockchain technology is now commonly being used for DeFi, NFTs and a host of other applications, and the traditional finance world is starting to invest in the space. BlockTower was a first mover, and as a preeminent institutional investment platform, they will continue to lead the way. We’re honored to have them call Miami home.”

BIOGRAPHY

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
