McDermott explained that the appetite to own Bitcoin and has transformed and will only increase in the coming years. “The price action has still been driven by retails primarily.

He also explained that many more asset classes could get tokenized and become a part of the larger cryptocurrency market. “I do think over time we’ll start to see more asset classes get tokenized and actually get some scale. But maybe that’s one or two years down the line,” he said.
