Bitcoin [BTC] had become the center of discussion in the crypto-verse after its meteoric rise recently. BTC is considered to be the digital gold with huge growth potential. As the interminable discussions continued for a long time, individuals associated with this discourse exhibited legitimate reasons both ‘for’ and ‘against’ the validity and acknowledgment of digital forms of money.

Enthusiasts around the globe believed that the big names of the market and hotshots in the corporate space were complacent about BTC. As Bitcoin is increasingly gaining recognition on a daily basis, Fidelity has emerged as the newest member to validate and diffuse BTC in its business operations.

Fidelity Investments, the multinational financial services corporation based in Boston, USA, offered services encircling investing, brokerage and retirement plans.

According to Bitcoin developer Justin Moon, Fidelity Investments has been interested in Bitcoin for a long time. He tweeted,

“Fidelity has a room full of Bitcoin Miners [ASICs] at their Texas office.”

This tweet, from a broader perspective, pointed at the interest of big wagons in the market in BTC mining. Apart from this, it also showed that they were actively participating in public blockchains.

This is not the first instance where Fidelity has openly accepted its interest in cryptocurrencies. Ari Paul, founder and chief investment officer of BlockTower Capital, had tweeted earlier this year,

A majority of Fidelity’s clients seems to believe that digital assets are the next big thing in the economy and the debate has been going on for a while. However, Fidelity’s statement rested the speculations of BTC being adopted by big league members. In other adoption news, three days ago, AT&T announced that it would start accepting payments in Bitcoin for its services.
