The top question we receive at PlannerDAO is “how can I incorporate digital assets into my practice?”

Whether it’s in our community forum, webinars, or CDAA courses, financial advisors are looking to bring the power of emerging technologies to their clients. Traditional advisor channels are not bringing us solutions fast enough.

The advisors at PlannerDAO want something new; we want the community to educate us.

Every year when Schwab invites us to their annual Impact Conference, the same thought occurs:

“Are we supposed to pay you a $1,000 registration fee, just so financial vendors can sell me their products?”


Emboldened by the creativity made possible by crypto, financial advisors are taking control of their profession. We don’t need gatekeepers, matchmakers, or other extraneous layers between our practices and the resources we value. Advisors need the ability to dictate the terms of any event they attend. We’re tired of avoiding eye contact with the vendors who weren’t polite enough to bring branded fidget spinners for your kids.

When joining the DAO the first thing we ask is, “what's one thing you'd like to change about the financial services industry?"

A group of financial advisors getting together to talk business, plans, and ideas isn’t unique.

In fact, it’s common practice in the financial services industry. Borderline overdone.

But on December 13th & 14th, a meetup of 11 advisors and educators took place in Austin, TX that was different. It was special.

Here’s what happened:

With billions of dollars flowing into crypto this year, it’s fair to wonder, “how much bigger can crypto get?”

Millennials and Zoomers are bypassing stocks to scoop up the coin of the week, while Wall Street firms are rolling out products exclusive to their aging, high net-worth clients.

This crypto-sandwich of young and old is driving crypto prices upwards, but neither demographic will spur the mass adoption necessary for crypto to become mainstream. The key to pressing the crypto turbo button is understanding who is late to the party.
