Onto this week’s updates 🚦

🔴 Vanguard Rejects Bitcoin ⛔

It seems that not everyone is happy with the approval of the Bitcoin ETF. Vanguard is one of the world's largest investment companies and they will be denying their clients access to the newly approved Bitcoin ETF’s. The reason seems to be that Vanguard does not consider Bitcoin suitable for their investment strategy, which prioritizes traditional assets like stocks, bonds, and cash for long-term stability. Vanguard has assets worth more than $8 trillion 😬

🟡 Ether Surges In ETF Hopes 🤞

In a typical buy the rumours, sell the news event, after Bitcoin ETF was approved, the biggest winner was Ether (Ethereum token). Well this happened because investors are now anticipating that if the Bitcoin ETF had the greenlight, next it's Ether’s turn. This is a major classic in finance, you buy the rumours and sell the news, like it’s happening today with Bitcoin. However, we’re anticipating this is a short term movement for Bitcoin, and that it will return to its positive riding shortly. 📈

🟢 Bitcoin ETF Approved 🔥🔥🔥

Wednesday marked one of the most important moments in the history of Bitcoin. The world of traditional finance opened up to the “Digital Gold” and welcomed it, with Bitcoin now beginning to be traded by the world's richest qualified and institutional investors. Bitcoin is now a mainstream asset, opened to trillions of dollars of investment in the world's largest economy. 🔥🔥🔥

🎬 Well, I think we all knew it would come sooner than later, but what a way to start the year! Bitcoin is the world's buzzword and this is just the beginning of the story of this fascinating asset. 🚀
