There is no doubt that cryptocurrency interest in the world today is of immense capacity. Many investors, firms, and analysts have been able to justify this belief. The latest to talk about the growing interest in cryptocurrencies is John Waldron.
While speaking in an interview with Reuters, the chief operating officer of the leading global investment banking firm, Goldman Sachs, voiced out his opinion of clients’ cryptocurrency interest. He stated that the demand for cryptocurrencies from its clients is increasing by the day.
He further explained the reason for the high rate of cryptocurrency interest. He added that the recent pandemic had a crucial role to play in the demand for cryptocurrencies. According to John, cryptocurrency interest will skyrocket due to the pandemic’s effect, and there is no doubt about it.
In the interview, John also addressed the issue of regulation. He disclosed that the company is making plans to work with many firms worldwide, including central banks and regulatory bodies. With the number of people venturing into digital currency, it is unwise not to adopt regulations.
