Bittrex Exec Joins Mortgage Giant Fannie Mae After Crypto Exchange’s Brush With NYDFS

John Roth left the crypto exchange for the Washington, D.C.-based mortgage finance giant last month, according to his LinkedIn page. He is now director of legal and regulatory compliance at Fannie, which formed during the Great Depression to buy and insure home loans for banks, and has been operating under government conservatorship since the 2008 crash. Fannie buys or guarantees about a quarter of all single-family mortgages written in the U.S., according to its last annual report.
