At the same time, Crypto Youtuber and Airswap’s Robert Paone helped to notice that there was an advertising campaign paid by E*Trade. This shows that the institution is getting ready for launching its crypto trading services to the market.
Nathaniel Popper, New York Times’ journalist specialized in virtual currencies, wrote that insiders are saying similar things to the ones as reported by Bloomberg regarding E*Trade and its intentions to offer crypto trading services for users. That means that BTC and ETH tickers will be appearing on their portals. In the future, the firm could add support to other cryptocurrencies such as Litecoin (LTC) or XRP.
This shows that there is a large mainstream endorsement for cryptocurrencies from a wide range of financial companies. Indeed, Fidelity Investments is currently testing its own crypto product for companies and larger investors. Meanwhile, Facebook and JP Morgan are working on their own virtual currencies that are expected to be released in the market to the near future.
The Intercontinental Exchange (ICE) is working on its own platform to allow larger investors have access to Bitcoin and digital currencies. The platform is going to be called Bakkt and is expected to be launched throughout the year.
