“We’re not surprised to see the headlines around Tesla’s move into bitcoin and expect 2021 will be a year that many other big names make the official crossover into the space,†the LMAX executive said on Monday. “Bitcoin’s resiliency in 2020 had already set the stage for this next major rotation, with bitcoin finally maturing into an asset capable of satisfying the needs of institutional participants.â€

“Tesla is clearly one of the most newsworthy and forward-thinking corporates of our times which helps to bolster the growing reputation of Bitcoin as a recognised store of value for Institutions globally,†David Mercer added. “We expect the trickle of institutional investment thus far to become an overwhelming flood in the rest of 2021 and beyond.â€

John Wu, President of Ava Labs also spoke about Tesla joining all the companies with bitcoin on corporate balance sheets. “Tesla’s purchase of $1.5B of bitcoin not only continues the momentum of public companies purchasing crypto, but could be a watershed moment that establishes some allocation of digital assets as a cornerstone of a healthy, diversified treasury,†Wu stressed.

“Regardless of industry, businesses should follow these early adopters establishing in-roads to the payment rails and financial infrastructure of the future. That starts with bitcoin, and will steadily expand to projects that are just outside the frame focused on the programmable, smart asset side of the ecosystem where enterprises can find more use cases beyond digital gold,†Wu added.
