The shift from trade to crypto
In the past months, we have seen that the Bitcoin’s price has grown exponentially in 2020 as the Federal Reserve has pushed many controversial efforts to reduce the pandemic’s economic impact, sliding many luminaries and figures in finance to consider crypto for the first time.
Morgan Creek Digital’s executive, Jason Williams, has foretold that Buffett’s multinational conglomerate holding company, Berkshire Hathaway, could soon put money in Bitcoin.
He also added how young managers and analysts at the firm could snap and decide to buy BTC, even without the heads up of Buffet.
In developing stores, other personalities to join crypto is Barstool Sports founder, Dave Portnoy, Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss. Through the joint venture of the twin brothers, Portnoy purchased $200,000 in Bitcoin and $50,000 in Chainlink, a few of his crypto assets.
