So we’ll see varied blockchains come out stronger than ever, and so they’ll have extra of a differentiated placement in all people’s minds, moderately than what I really feel for the previous yr has been an undifferentiated understanding within the retail market of ‘crypto’ encompassing the whole lot. There can be extra of an understanding of who is robust, who must be watched and who desires to be part of which ecosystem and why.”

We nonetheless suppose that till a crypto alternate registers with the SEC, we’re not going to see spot bitcoin ETF approval.
