NEW YORK, April 29, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- This year is shaping up to be exceedingly important for the development of cryptocurrencies. Among the numerous recent news reports about how the modern banking infrastructure is opening up to the trend, there are also signs that some major businesses are becoming more adaptable to receiving payments in cryptocurrencies. As a result, the view that Bitcoin or Ethereum are worthwhile investments has caused major banks to allow customers to invest in specialized funds. For example, according to a report by Coindesk, JPMorgan Chase is preparing to offer an actively managed bitcoin fund to certain clients, becoming the latest and largest bank to embrace crypto as an asset class.
