“If we might get regulation – and I’d argue if we might simply regulate one coin to start with, let it’s Bitcoin, and one stablecoin – that will be improbable. However staying on Bitcoin, right here’s what would occur: I’m an indexer, I ask the sovereign wealth [fund], ‘What allocation would you set into Bitcoin?’ And the everyday mandate for these guys, we’ve 11 sectors of the S&P, their guidelines are long-only, not more than 20% in anybody sector, not more than 5% in anybody inventory. So they might provoke their index at Bitcoin at 50 foundation factors. Whenever you’re operating a trillion-dollar mandate, that could be a ton of cash.”
