Move Over Suits, Bitcoin Techies Take over Wall Street
“At this conference, one thing I immediately noticed, I have a hard time finding the nerd table,” said Joseph Poon, founder of the Bitcoin Lightning Network, a system for digital payments.
Wall Street is getting more invested in digital currencies and just in time for Bitcoin to hit a record high.
Bitcoin has more than doubled in price this year and briefly surged to a record of $2,791.70 Thursday, before briefly erasing $400.
Earlier in the week at another New York digital currency conference, Consensus, Fidelity announced it will allow clients to see bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies held on Coinbase on its website, according to a Reuters report.
It’s not just Fidelity that’s getting more public about their interest in digital currencies and the underlying blockchain technology.
