"The most bullish thing would be for Abby Johnson to say 'all my 26 million users can now buy Bitcoin on my platform.' Hasn't happened yet." 

Small steps

Fidelity strarted dabbling back in 2013 when it opened a mining farm.

Since then, the mutual fund giant, which controls nearly trln, has upped the ante by launching its digital asset division back in 2018.  

As reported by U.Today, Fidelity recently started rolling out its cryptocurrency custody service. It seems apparent that it wants to spar with Coinbase for the dominance in this rapidly growing market niche

Despite turning ten in 2018, Bitcoin has so far failed to achieve mainstream adoption outside of pure price speculations. This serves as the main argument for the coin's doubters. 

If visionaries in the likes of Johnson choose to jump feet-first into Bitcoin, it would finally get the exposure it desperately needs.
