A Message from Abra’s CEO, Bill Barhydt

The entire team at Abra is here as your trusted partner for all things crypto. 

I want to address the current turmoil in the market and the news regarding Celsius and BlockFi. We’ve experienced incredible growth as a company and I have great conviction for the future of crypto. We all know that crypto is subject to extreme volatility.

Having a partner like Abra that is financially secure, has sound risk management practices, and has personalized service for every private client is absolutely essential. That’s why Abra is considered by many to be the best company for helping you manage your crypto wealth

Abra has rigorous credit underwriting, risk management, and trading policies. Our yield and lending operations are in a strong position with no losses suffered. You’ve all heard me talk about our risk policies for the past two-plus years. It’s this commitment to excellence that has enabled our rapid growth in a safe and responsible manner.

We’re also aware of the issues facing Celsius and the recent issues with BlockFi. Abra has no exposure to Celsius or BlockFi and Abra has no relationship whatsoever with them. Our rigorous underwriting standards and risk management practices are protecting all of our funds. In short, Abra is open for business and thriving.

We’re here for you anytime. You can always reach out to your Abra private client advisor at , or our support team at .
