So, if the rumors that regulators are working on a solution at the institutional level, is correct, then after 3-5 months in the cryptocurrency industry investors will come at the highest level, willing to invest tens or even hundreds of billions of dollars. But while everyone is waiting for the service for the storage of cryptocurrency, approved by the Commission on securities and exchange Commission (SEC)».
