NYDIG, 비트 코인 등가물에 2 억 달러 투자 유치
Asset management company NYDIG has raised $ 200 million to invest in the booming bitcoin industry. In addition to this, the firm said that insurers have already gained access to $1 billion in bitcoin equivalent through investments from their clients.
New York Digital Investment Group is one of the largest Bitcoin investment solutions companies. In addition to NYDIG, Stone Ridge Holdings Group, Morgan Stanley, MassMutual and Soros Fund Management also took part in the funding round.
Robert Gutmann, CEO of NYDIG, clarified that all the companies participating in the funding round are not just investors, but their strategic partners, whom NYDIG has known for several days. The initiatives taken by the companies are related to investment management, banking, insurance, charity, and clean energy.
According to Gutmann, such partnerships once again indicate a clear interest of institutional investors in buying bitcoins and cryptocurrencies in general.
He also pledged an “explosion of innovation” in the next few months and quarters in bitcoin products and services provided by NYDIG and its partners.
Such news is really encouraging, but institutionalists are always extremely careful, because it is not a fact that at the first alarm call, they will not start fleeing from the “sinking ship”.
