Bitcoin’s status among traditional investors is changing
Anthony Pompliano said that Bitcoin’s status among traditional investors is starting to change.
In a recent interview, he said that the longer BTC continues to thrive and prove haters that they are wrong, the more people will notice this and the massive rise over the past decade.
He points to the fact that JP Morgan is now providing banking services to crypto exchanges Coinbase and Gemini as a sign of a brighter future.
“Bitcoin is not going away. You’re starting to see a lot of Wall Street investors actually putting it in their portfolios. And they’re starting to also have some track record for these exchanges or businesses, so they can see the financial performance,” he said.
He continued and explained, “So I think ultimately, what you’re really going to start to see is banks can’t ignore this space.”
