Bitcoin is on its way to becoming a global asset

This new job post comes right after the BlackRock CEO Larry Fink said that although Bitcoin is still a relatively small asset, it is well on its way to becoming a global asset.

“Bitcoin has caught the attention and the imagination of many people. Many people are fascinated by it. Many are excited about it. But it’s still untested; it’s still a pretty small market relative to other markets. We see these big, giant movements every day… it’s a thin market,” he said.

He continued and explained: “So, can it evolve into a global market? Possibly. Certainly by evidence of the imaginations of so many who want to learn about it or are interested in it, to me, is a very telling sign.”

At the moment of writing this article, Bitcoin is trading in the red, and the king coin is priced at $26,821.04.
