The Bitcoin price is steady, firm under the expectation of bulls. After stellar performances in the last few weeks, the coin has the attention of Wall Street megaliths.
Despite their reservations, the quest for higher profits and a share of the Bitcoin spoils proved irresistible.
Amid the FOMO conditions currently palpable, the CEO of BlackRock—one of the world’s largest asset managers commanding over $7.4 trillion, couldn’t be left behind.
There may be resistance from the government and some critics claiming Bitcoin won’t amount to anything because of its lack of intrinsic value and high volatility. Regardless, in all this, Larry Fink said Bitcoin could, after all, evolve to be a global network.
In his assessment, Bitcoin has the attention of millennials. A study in early 2020 revealed that most millennials in the United States knew what Bitcoin and leading crypto were and would invest in the digital asset, not gold.
Larry Fink’s comments, therefore, highlights the growing trend from a manager’s point of view and the growing significance of the asset. He added that Bitcoin’s evolution into a fully-fledged, self-sustaining system could significantly impact the role of the USD in the global monetary scene.
The greenback is a reserve currency; held by foreign nations to cushion themselves against financial shocks.
If Fink’s forecast comes to pass, it would be interesting to see how authorities will act to reassert the influence of fiat.
