Another day, another little tidbit pointing to the adoption of the crypto asset class by major institutional players.
We already know that Nasdaq and Fidelity are planning on offering crypto products to their clients in the near future. So now it seems they’re pooling together to buy out ErisX.com, a regulated online exchange platform.
The reported amount paid for the exchange was just $27.5 million. No doubt they got an excellent deal due to the recent return of the bear market. Of course, details on this deal are still fuzzy as stated in the Reuters article that broke the news.
After recent remarks from the SEC, it’s now seeming much less likely that a Bitcoin backed ETF will be approved any time soon but at the rate, new products are coming online I wouldn’t worry about it too much. Within a very short time, every trader and investor on the planet should be able to integrate top crypto assets into any investment portfolio fairly easily.
