BlackRock Bitcoin Holdings Eclipses MicroStrategy!

BlackRock's IBIT ETF now holds about 195,985 BTC, surpassing MicroStrategy's 193,000 BTC.

In 1983, a developer from New York City decided to buy an unnamed piece of art for $19,000, without predicting that it would be auctioned for $110 million in 2017, generating a return of 5,798 times the original investment.

This certainly proves the profit-making potential of investing in art. The art investment platform Masterworks offers regular investors a gateway into this very lucrative market. Masterworks operates on a model where investors can reap financial benefits upon the sale of artworks, a feat that has proven rather successful so far.

Readers of Coinpaper Digest benefit from an exclusive opportunity to join Masterworks and embark on their own exciting investment journey.

Just remember that investing carries risks, and the performance seen in the past does not guarantee future outcomes.

  • Despite ongoing legal challenges, Binance's native token, BNB, experienced an impressive increase in value, rising by about 62% in 30 days.

Financial institutions in Hong Kong are gearing up to meet the increasing interest in cryptocurrency investment offerings.

  • Hong Kong began accepting applications for Bitcoin spot ETFs in December of last year, but no such products have been launched just yet, risking Asian investors falling behind Americans.

  • To address this disparity, Hong Kong institutions are now working on launching Ethereum spot ETFs.

  • Their aim is to outpace the United States and strengthen Hong Kong's standing in the international crypto market.
