    U.S. insurance giant’s $100M BTC investment a milestone in institutional adoption: JPMorgan

    A JPM Managing Director said if pension funds and insurers in the U.S., euro area, U.K., and Japan allocate 1% of assets to bitcoin, demand would grow by $600 billion; Mad Money’s Jim Cramer jumps in

    In a recent note to investors, Panigirtzoglou said that the recent acquisition of $100 million worth of Bitcoin by United States-based insurance giant Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance is a rather important event for the story of the asset. “MassMutual’s Bitcoin purchases represent another milestone in the Bitcoin adoption by institutional investors," said Panigirtzoglou. "One can see the potential demand that could arise over the coming years as other insurance companies and pension funds follow MassMutual’s example.”
