Blackrock, werelds grootste vermogensbeheerder invest in bitcoin mining

BlackRock has allocated more than $ 382 million in shares in Marathon Digital Holdings and The Riot Blockchain.
On Thursday, it was reported that BlackRock had set aside more than $ 382 million for shares in Marathon Digital Holdings and The Riot Blockchain. Forbes discovered an Sec filing dated June 30, 2021 that showed BlackRock, which has assets of more than $ 9 trillion, had bought significant amounts of shares from companies mining bitcoin.
BlackRock’s investments include 6.71% ($206,791 012.04) in digital holdings and 6.61% ($176 170 991.04) in the Riot Blockchain, making it the second largest participant of both companies after the Vanguard Group, according to Forbes.
The shares are decoupled between more than 100 mutual funds and hundreds of BLACKROCK ETFs and stock market indices.
On August 10, it was reported that multinational financial services company Fidelity Investments had acquired a 7.4% stake in the digital conglomerate marathon, the renowned North American bitcoin mining operator.
“Bitcoin is a very interesting asset,” said Rick reeder, BlackRock’s Global Fixed Income Investment Officer and head of its global distribution team, earlier this year. “I think it’s sustainable. I think that will be part of the investment area in the coming years.”;
The move speaks to a sudden influx of traditionally conservative financial institutions that have aligned their attitudes towards Bitcoin with other traditional investment instruments such as traditional equity capital and the Grayscale bitcoin Trust.

Indeed, BlackRock, Goldman Sachs, bitcoin Trust and Viridi have recently applied for or started investing in funds related to the provision of the bitcoin ETF.
According to Forbes, We filed an application with the SEC in January for bitcoin futures contracts with cash payments and BlackRock’s Global Distribution Fund and BlackRock’s portfolio of strategic revenue opportunities.
In particular, BlackRock’s investments come after American bitcoin mining companies were expected to benefit from a mining ban in China.
