Peter Briger was a leader in the early stages of Wall Street investment in Bitcoin. He met with leaders from Wells Fargo in 2013 to gather support for his interest. He explained his thoughts on how Bitcoin was pioneering the digital financial marketplace. Earlier that year, Peter Briger learned about what the company offered. Bitcoin allowed customers to transport money anywhere in the digital and physical world. This was a new service at the time and he figured it would benefit other members of the Financial Industry. At that point, they spent much of their time moving money around in a less convenient way. Wells Fargo weighed the idea but ultimately denied Peter Briger a partnership deal. However, Fortress did invest in Bitcoin and their current stake is worth over 142 million dollars.
