The family office of George Soros plans to start trading bitcoin and other digital assets, Bloomberg reports with reference to its own sources.
Responsible for macroinvestments in the Soros Fund Management Adam Fisher has already received the approval of the fund for trading cryptourrencies, although it has not yet started active investment in this direction.
The official representative of the fund, under whose management to date $ 26 billion, refrained from commenting.
George Soros became widely known in 1992, when he played against the pound sterling and received $ 1 billion in profits. He became the first American to earn so much in a year, and received the nickname "a man who humiliated the Bank of England."
In 2011, Soros Fund Management returned money to outside investors and became a family asset management office for the 87-year-old billionaire.
It is noteworthy that in January, Soros called bitcoin a typical "financial bubble," but noted that because of the influence of dictatorial regimes in different parts of the world, the collapse of the cryptocurrency is unlikely.
