Pro-XRP Lawyer Takes A Dig At Bitcoin, Calls It Overhyped

According to the recent Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) filing, MercadoLibre, the largest e-commerce platform in Latin America, revealed that its Bitcoin holdings stand at $29 million as of March 31.

The disclosure indicates the company’s integration of cryptocurrency earlier communicated in 2021, revealing its participation in digital assets despite the volatile market conditions.

Integration of Bitcoin in Traditional Asset Management

The most recent SEC filings show an institutional trend of integrating Bitcoin into their traditional asset management strategies. There have also been reports of a couple of other financial giants, BNP Paribas and BNY Mellon, having holdings in Bitcoin ETFs, which indicates that the traditional investment landscape is moving towards a more broad-based acceptance of digital currencies.

Concurrently, BNY Mellon revealed ownership of close to 20,000 shares in IBIT and some 7,000 shares in Grayscale Bitcoin ETF GBTC, while BNP Paribas has around 1,000 shares of IBIT.

Institutional Investments and Market Dynamics

Bitcoin ETFs are also receiving substantial investments from smaller firms, indicating that institutional involvement with the cryptocurrency market is manifold.

An example is Quattro Advisors, located in Pittsburgh, which owns 468,200 shares of BlackRock ETF, and Legacy Wealth Management, which reported having more than 350,000 shares of Fidelity ETF.

In addition, Yong Rong, one of the biggest holders, declared more than $45 million in BlackRock iShares Bitcoin ETF (IBIT), which indicates the magnitude of the institutional funds that enter Bitcoin-related financial products.

Upcoming 13F Filings

With the mid-May deadline for 13F filings looming, the financial sector is set to receive more comprehensive details regarding institutional actions on Bitcoin ETFs. These filings, required for institutions that manage at least $100 million, are an essential tool to evaluate the institutional scenario of investments in cryptocurrencies.

Analysts expect that the revelation of these filings will create a more distinct image of how Bitcoin is becoming a part of the traditional asset management world.

The continuous tracking of these filings will show the acceleration of Bitcoin’s penetration into various financial portfolios. With the deadline approaching, the financial community is closely monitoring any further revelations that may suggest changes in institutional policies or actions regarding cryptocurrency investments that can be taken as new trends in Bitcoin adoption by established financial systems.
