It’s September already! Time flies when you’re having fun. This month we have two new hires, started working with an exciting project, and landed press in Entrepreneur, Blockchain Beach, Forbes, and Benzinga, to name a few.  


New Hires

Our two new team members have brought forth an important set of skills and experience that will be instrumental in helping us to better facilitate the needs of our clients.

Welcome to Melrose, Nikki Poppiti and Kili Wall!


Nikki Poppiti has been brought on as a Content Coordinator. Nikki moved to the Bay Area this summer after spending the past three years working in storytelling and strategy for corporate innovation and new ventures department at Chick-fil-A and Coca-Cola. In her time there, she focused on emerging technologies, mapping disruptors for different verticals, and growing both internal and external support. Blockchain became an obsession so she decided to dive head first into the crypto world this past June. She is a self-professed francophile and believes that disco is not dead. We’re so happy to have you Nikki!


Kili Wall has been brought on as an Account Executive. Kili is a recent graduate of Biola University where she received her BA in Public Relations. She is passionate about facilitating meaningful relationships in the blockchain space, utilizing her strengths in interpersonal communication, strategy, and hopes to seek new challenges here at Melrose. Welcome aboard Kili!

Wedding bells are ringing….

Our Director of Operations, Jesse Lucas tied the knot earlier this month! Congratulations Jesse, we are so happy for you, (and we don’t mind sharing you)!


As we wrapped up the summer and toasted to new cryptocurrencies, we hosted the How Low Can You Go Bitcoin event in our own backyard! We explored and learned about the world of altcoins from our guest speaker, Catherine Brown, Senior Partner and Chief of Staff at ARK Advisors. We brought our altcoin questions and best limbo game face. It had a great turn out! Check out some of the photos!
