Market Trends:

Dear crypto asset investor, a few choice words from Larry Fink on Bitcoin:

“The technology is fantastic.”

“The role of crypto—it is digitizing gold, in many ways. Instead of investing in gold as a hedge against inflation (…) or the devaluation of your currency—whatever country you’re in. Let’s be clear, bitcoin is an international asset. It’s not based on any one currency and so it can represent an asset that people can play as an alternative. I would call that the foundation of Blackrock is about: Hope. You invest for retirement because you believe tomorrow is better than today.”

"We’re a believer in digitization of products. You know, ETFs was a big revolution for the mutual fund industry (and it's really taking over the mutual fund industry) and we do believe that if we can create more tokenization of assets and securities--and that's what Bitcoin is--it could revolutionize finance." The Chairman continued:

“What we're trying to do with crypto is make it more democratized (…) and making it much cheaper for investors” He said. “We hope that our regulators look at these filings as a way to democratize crypto and we'll see in the future how that plays out".

“We work really closely with our regulators, and we want to hear from them what are their issues and how can we fix those issues”.

Larry also touched on ESG, the economy and the banking crisis, adding that he foresaw another four 25bps interest rate hikes, totaling 1%.

Finally, when asked what he thought “the most important thing this country needs right now” Mr. Fink brought it back to what he’d earlier positioned as his firm—and  Bitcoin’s—core value proposition, answering “We need to bring back hope.”

Well, sir, we could not agree with you more.
