The launch of a crypto custody service by leading financial firm Fidelity Investments is predicted by many to be a huge catalyst for institutional investment in the space. According to one insider, the pensions giant has in fact already made a significant commitment in Bitcoin, in a different way.
According to Bitcoin developer Justin Moon, Fidelity has been investing in Bitcoin for a while now. Having a host of mining rigs set up inside the company’s office shows how much potential the team sees in BTC, and it has been previously claimed that CEO Abigail Johnson has been mining inside her own office since 2015 (as reported by NewsBTC).
The company is headquartered in Boston, Massachussetts but has offices all over the U.S. and further afield. Observers on Twitter were debating which office this “room full” of BTC mining rigs is likely located in. Meanwhile, a tweet from a couple of months ago underlines just how passionate Fidelity’s employees are about crypto.
