As covered by U.Today, plans are in place by Mutual fund giant Fidelity Investments to allow customers to add Bitcoin to their 401(k) savings plans, according to recent reports.
Given that Fidelity is the country's largest supplier of pension plans, the decision could be a watershed moment for cryptocurrency adoption in the United States. The Boston-based investing behemoth oversees more than 20 million people's retirement funds.
Likewise, Anthony Scaramucci indicated that Skybridge will add Bitcoin to its 401(k) savings plans, following Fidelity's lead.
