#1: Bitcoin is Getting Further Wall Street Support

First and foremost, Bitcoin is getting more support from Wall Street investors despite the fears that the cryptocurrency was a scam just years ago.

One CIO at Blackrock, one of the world’s biggest financial companies, announced this morning that he thinks cryptocurrencies are here to stay and that Bitcoin may replace gold. The <a class="wpg-linkify wpg-tooltip" title="
