“The origins of bitcoin centred around the financial crisis in 2008, and some are claiming the stress in the banking system supports the crypto thesis. I disagree. I think the relief bounce in crypto was the mitigation of uncertainty and a boost to the short-term price action. The underlying benefits haven’t changed, but the long-term success of digital assets are dependent upon the integration with enhanced banking rails, not necessarily as an alternative.”

“The London Stock Exchange has an extensive traditional finance infrastructure in place it is already a global hub for trading of liquid assets, including crypto. This puts London in pole position to serve the world as a hub for crypto, as businesses and institutions seek trusted and reliable trading partners.”

“The volume and activity in retail adoption of crypto meant that it was inevitable that institutions would get involved. We’re seeing that adoption build as the ecosystem matures and, in particular, as some regulators provide more clarity on the guardrails and treatment of this growing asset class.”

“…hedge funds that have started trading crypto have done so using futures, for instance on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange…if they were to suffer losses on such positions they would “have had to post more margin with the CME or take cash losses with the DeFi exchanges”
