Both Kraken and RIT Capital declined to comment.
The adoption of cryptos and the underlying tech, the blockchain has been one of the main goals that the crypto space has set. There have been a lot of moves made in this direction and the momentum is definitely still here.
Kraken in the news
At the beginning of this month, Kraken made headlines again after it’s been reported that Kraken’s CEO is really optimistic that Bitcoin will rise and a coin will be equal in value to one of the most expensive cars on the market.
During an interview on Bloomberg TV, Jesse Powell said that 1 BTC could be worth a Bugatti in under two years.
The online publication the Daily Hodl notes that the cost of the luxury car typically ranges from about $1.7 million to $3 million, while BTC is currently lingering around $60k.
“Probably by the end of the year, I think it will be one Bitcoin per Lamborghini, and probably by the end of next year, it will be one Bitcoin per Bugatti…” he said.
