What is it: This shows bitcoin's ROI vs other potential inflation hedge assets.

Why it matters: As with the historical bitcoin price table, we see bitcoin's extreme outperformance vs other assets here as well. Bitcoin's relatively small size, plus fundamental properties, yield extreme outperformance when even relatively small funds-flows find their way to BTC.

US Regulator Says Banks Can Hold Bitcoin Directly


 

The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) formally stated today that nationally chartered banks can hold cryptocurrencies on behalf of their customers. This has been a long-standing regulatory block to banks and other financial institutions being able to provide bitcoin-related services to customers.


Peter Van Valkenburgh at CoinCenter explains:

National banks entering the game expands that competition and may also allow more traditional institutional investors to deal in cryptocurrencies. Several regulated entities are bound by financial regulatory laws to use and only use chartered banks for custodial services, and in a world where chartered banks are not holding crypto that can leave several investors with a defacto ban on large scale participation in crypto markets.

tldr

  • This opens up a whole new tranche of regulated financial services providers (banks) to offering bitcoin-related services
  • Other FIs that rely on regulated banks for custody now have far more options
  • This sends a broader signal that bitcoin is a legitimate asset class (to those who may still have doubts)
