Crypto Corner Podcast 690: Stocks discussed: (NYSE: JPM) (NYSE: IVZ) (TSX: GLXY)
Stocks discussed: (NYSE:JPM) (NYSE:IVZ) (TSX:GLXY)
JPMorgan (NYSE:JPM) cites an “increased appetite from institutional investors who are seeking a hedge to inflation,” as a reason for Bitcoin’s (BTC) rally to a more than $1 trillion USD market cap in this past week, according to an article from Market Insider. This take comes from a note shared by JPMorgan with clients on Thursday, an excerpt from which points to three factors influencing the rally:
- “The recent assurances by US policy makers that there is no intention to follow China’s steps towards banning the usage or mining of cryptocurrencies.”
- “The recent rise of the Lightning Network and 2nd layer payments solutions helped by El Salvador’s bitcoin adoption.”
- “The re-emergence of inflation concerns among investors has renewed interest in the usage of bitcoin as an inflation hedge.”
The Market Insider piece also cites the relative weakness of gold as an effective hedge against inflation in the past months.
Data from CoinMarketCap indicates that Bitcoin is up about 14 percent in the past seven days, and is trading for roughly $54,000 at press time.
Global asset management firm Invesco Ltd. (NYSE:IVZ) has announced the launch of two passively managed exchange-traded funds (ETFs) focused on digital assets and blockchain: the Invesco Alerian Galaxy Crypto Economy ETF (SATO) and the Invesco Alerian Galaxy Blockchain Users and Decentralized Commerce ETF (BLKC). According to the press release, the two ETFs “will offer thematic equity exposure to global public companies and select investment vehicles that are actively engaged in the cryptocurrency and blockchain sectors.” They are the result of a partnership with Alerian S-Network Global Indexes and Galaxy Digital Holdings Ltd. (TSX:GLXY). Steve Kurz, Partner and Head of Asset Management at Galaxy Digital, said:
“Today marks an exciting milestone as we unlock another way for retail and institutional investors to get involved in the rapidly evolving and transformative world of digital assets. We look forward to our continued partnership with Invesco, a leader in ETFs, and Alerian, a leader in index-based investment strategies, as we continue bridging the gap between traditional and digital finance.”
