全球最大专业基金公司Fidelity正式推出比特币投资组合跟踪服务

全球最大专业基金公司富达投资集团(Fidelity Investment)的客户现在能够像跟踪其他传统投资资产一样跟踪他们的比特币和加密货币投资了。

该集团的研发与创新部门——富达实验室(Fidelity Labs),近日宣布正式与加密货币创业公司Coinbase达成合作来实现这种功能。不过,客户必须拥有一个Coinbase账户才能使用这种服务。

富达高级副总裁兼执行董事Hadley Stern表示:

“我们的餐厅已经支持比特币作为支付方式。我们还接受人们使用比特币来向我们的富达慈善捐助基金(FCDA)捐款。这次与Coinbase的合作是我们的比特币发展道路的又一里程碑。”

据巴比特此前报道,富达慈善捐助基金(FCDA)今年上半年就获得了900万美元的比特币捐款。

 

小心驶得万年船

进来,比特币等加密货币新兴资产市场价格快速攀升,不少大型传统乐天堂娱乐服务机构开始逐步参与加密货币系统投资。

例如,上个月美国运通(American Express)与比特币创业公司Abra达成了合作,首次允许Abra用户使用运通信用卡在其点对点支付APP上购买比特币。

在某种意义上,富达提供的新服务允许投资客户在一个单一的平台上查看自己完整的资产(包括加密货币)投资组合。然而,在这一点上这种功能是只读的(read-only)——这就意味着客户无法在平台上执行交易。

尽管如此,这仍旧可以被看作为迈向潜在扩展服务的第一步。

Hadley在这种可能的解释中暗示,尽管他没有这么说,但他将这一声明作为富达“持续承诺”使用新技术开发产品和服务的一部分。

Fidelity users can now track their bitcoin and cryptocurrency investments alongside more traditional assets.

Announced today, the company's R&D and innovation unit, Fidelity Labs, is formally partnering with cryptocurrency startup Coinbase to make the feature available. Fidelity customers must already have a Coinbase account to take advantage of the service, which will be rolled out to users starting tomorrow.

The move effectively formalizes work Fidelity CEO Abby Johnson first teased months ago at CoinDesk's Consensus 2017 conference.

As such, Fidelity's Hadley Stern, a senior vice president and managing director, built on the narrative put forth by Johnson in her speech, framing the move as part of the company's inquisitive outlook on the new tech.

Stern told CoinDesk:

"We've made bitcoin available for use in our cafeteria. We've enabled people to donate bitcoin to their Fidelity Charitable Donor Advised Fund. The partnership with Coinbase is another point along that path of bitcoin development."

He continued: "With each of these different experiments we're learning along the way."

Cautious inroads

The announcement comes at a time when large, traditional financial services firms are beginning to take small steps to engage with the cryptocurrency ecosystem, spurred by the rapid increase in value of the nascent asset class.

Last month, for example, American Express partnered with portfolio firm Abra, effectively allowing cardholders to purchase bitcoin for the first time on the peer-to-peer payments app.

In a sense, Fidelity has upped the ante by allowing investment customers to view their entire integrated portfolio of assets, cryptocurrencies included, on a single platform. At this point, however, the functionality is read-only – meaning clients aren't able to execute trades on the Fidelity platform.

However, it could be read as the first step toward potentially expanded services.

Hadley hinted at this possible interpretation, though he stopped short of saying so, framing the announcement as part of Fidelity's "continuing commitment" to developing products and services using new technology.
