The specialist cited these figures after BlackRock filed an application with SEC to launch Bitcoin ETF. She called the initiative “just one of the stories.”
Among other institutions:
- Fidelity – trading and storage of bitcoin and Ethereum;
- JPMorgan Chase – transfers of tokenized versions of USD and EUR through JPM Coin;
- Morgan Stanley – access to three bitcoin funds;
- Goldman Sachs – over-the-counter trading in cryptocurrencies;
- BNY Mellon – storage and transfers of bitcoin and Ethereum;
- Invesco is an exchange-traded fund based on the first cryptocurrency in Europe, an application for a similar product in the USA;
- Bank of America – Bitcoin futures trading.
“It’s still a trickle, not a wave. We see bridges being built in real time.”she pointed out.
Reflexivity Research co-founder Will Clemente backed Demirors. The expert noted that the market capitalization of digital gold is less than $600 billion.
“Between HSBC, BlackRock, Fidelity and Schwab, we are talking about $25 trillion in assets under management that will soon be able to buy bitcoin.” he explained.

Bitcoin is just a $600 billion market cap asset today, let alone tightly held/lost coins.
It’s not rocket science.

Recall, on June 25, it became known that investors in the ProShares bitcoin futures ETF over the past week have invested the maximum $65.3 million since the beginning of the year.
Earlier, CoinShares experts estimated the inflow of funds into cryptocurrency investment products from June 17 to June 23 at a record $199.1 million since July 2022. The trigger was the actions of BlackRock, they emphasized.
Later, similar applications were filed by WisdomTree and Invesco, as well as Valkyrie Investments.
