What’s going on?

Alright, so the Bitcoin price has gone up ~18% in the last week with the talk around the largest asset manager in the world, Blackrock, filing a spot Bitcoin ETF. Other large institutions like Invesco, WisdomTree, and Fidelity are reportedly racing to follow suit by filing spot ETFs of their own. As a result, there’s a ton of Bitcoin chatter going on amongst Wall Street, on the news, on social media, and in your friend circle.

Now what?

Well, nothing really has changed–this was always the thesis. However, this might be a good time to think about what your future with Bitcoin looks like. Allow us to break down some angles you could be considering.

Want to add to your position?
