Brian Stutland, the CIO/CCO at Equity Armor Investments spoke to CNBC about Bitcoin’s first rally of 2019. Stutland said:
“I think it could be a beginning of a bigger rally, because when you look at the fact that if we move Bitcoin into an ETF, now portfolio managers that are out there can actually allocate to Bitcoin in their models and put that some sort of weighting in their holdings in terms of what people want to hold in terms of investment value.”
