Many cynics say that institutions and other big names in the corporate world aren’t in Bitcoin (BTC) or crypto assets yet. But, this is quickly being proven not to be the case. In a recent tweet, a Bitcoin developer and industry insider revealed that one of the biggest names on Wall Street has and continues to mine BTC.
According to Justin Moon, Fidelity Investments, one of the world’s largest asset managers and financial institutions, has a “room full of Bitcoin miners (ASICs) at their [Texas] office.” This likely marks the first time that a Wall Street institution, let alone one of the big names, has actually mined BTC and actively participated in public, renowned blockchains. As Moon puts it, “[this is] cypherpunk AF!”
