Bitcoin

Bitcoin crossed the $34,000 mark as the bullish rally extends into New Year. With more and more global portfolios embracing bitcoin it is crossing its traditional boundaries of being the “New thing” for tech geeks and heavy speculators.

VanEck Associates Corporation is trying to launch ETFs tracking bitcoin. The move comes after the increasing bitcoin adoption rates.
