Bitcoin and Crypto Markets
The boss of heading US cryptocurrency sell Coinbase says he’s not astounded by the Dec crypto rally.
On CNBC’s Fast Money, Asiff Hirji talked about how distant crypto has come in new years, and where he thinks the space is headed in 2019.
“Things are never as good as they seem. Neither are they ever as bad as they seem. And to quote Buffet, ‘Be miserly when others are fearful, and be aroused when others are greedy.’ So we think it’s not startling to me that we’ve had a bit of a rebound back. we think the volume of creation that’s happened in cryptocurrency in the last year has exceeded all in all the years before it. And if you just look at the number of engineers that are going into cryptocurrencies and the number of tangible products that are being launched, we’ve never had as much creation as we have today.
Three or 4 years ago, Bitcoin was the only thing that mattered in cryptocurrency. Then, Ethereum came along. And now, we’re at a point where there’s probably 3,000 to 4,000 cryptocurrencies out there. There are probably 200 or so that matter. And you should assume that we will, over the course of time, supplement all the cryptocurrencies that matter in as many geographies as we’re authorised to supplement them. This is the start, we think, of the subsequent good call of creation in technology, and you should design to see more and more cryptocurrencies over time.
I think institutions need a current venue to trade on. They need a competent protector to store with. And they want to make sure that there’s tangible liquidity. So, we’ve built a lot of liquidity. We have the best, most regulated, most agreeable venue on the planet… And we have the only competent protector resolution in the space. And so we think we’ve laid a lot of the infrastructure to concede institutions to start to deposit in cryptcurrencies.
We’ve indeed had hundreds of institutions on house onto our custodian – you know, we’ve blown by the inner goals we’ve set for that business… So we feel very good about where we are with that business, and we think 2019 will continue to be a good year for the institutions who are going into crypto.”
