Fidelity appears to be on the verge of making one of the most important adoptions of cryptocurrencies by a major financial player to-date. According to Business Insider, Fidelity has just posted jobs on its site looking to hire people “to help engineer, create, and deploy a Digital Asset exchange to both a public and private cloud”. According to BI, “If Fidelity does launch a crypto exchange offering, it would arguably be among the biggest moves by a large Wall Street firm into the nascent crypto market, which stands at about $350 billion”. Fidelity already allows clients to see their crypto holdings alongside their conventional assets.
FINSUM: It sounds like Fidelity is planning to opening a crypto trading exchange. That would be a very important move to legitimate the asset class.
