NYDIG, a Bitcoin-related investment and technology company, said it would launch “Bitcoin-enabled solutions for life and annuity insurance providers in the United States.” This comes after the company announced the addition of Mike Sapnar, CEO of the reinsurance company TransRe, who will join NYDIG as the global leader in insurance solutions.
