Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance Co. has acquired $100 million worth of Bitcoin, according to a Dec. 10 report by The Wall Street Journal

MassMutual now also holds a $5 million stake in New York Digital Investment Group, the crypto asset management firm that was responsible for carrying out the purchase.  

NYDIG founder Ross Stevens claims that a "depreciating dollar" was the main impetus behind the investment.
