Rumors about the very substantive interest of Fidelity to cryptocurrency in summer, began circulating just after the news that investment giant reportedly plans to create their own exchange. However, as stated by President Fidelity Digital Asset Tom Jessop, just about a crypto currency exchange.
According to him, existing crypto currency exchange copes with its functions — Fidelity sees the lack of supply on the part of the store scriptaction, and it plans to focus its efforts.
The company, under which assets are in the trillions of dollars, understands something in this area, he added. Services “cold storage” from a fairly reputable provider will be weighty arguments in favor of the development of this market for institucionales, says Jessop.
It is about creating habitual investors model platform that allows users to make transactions on one or more exchanges for the best price, without worrying about where to transfer and where to store then their assets.
In his opinion, 2019 for the stock market should be a period of falling barriers — “everyone will be able to come into this market and contribute to its growth.”
