Evolution of Digital Assets, Bitcoin, and Mainstream Investments

A conversation with Fidelity Digital Funds' Peter Jubber

In the research leading up to Deloitte’s 2020 Global Blockchain Survey, we found that 83 percent of executive respondents believed that digital assets will serve as an alternative to, or a replacement for, fiat currency in the next five to 10 years. This is consistent with Deloitte’s premise that blockchain—and the commercial activities it enables—are moving from potential to reality, and is particularly evident as we look at the evolution of investment strategies, where digital assets like Bitcoin are increasingly mainstream.

Executive Summary

Fidelity has been into Bitcoin since the early days of digital assets. Following the vision of Chairman and CEO Abby Johnson, Fidelity began a small mining operation that kicked off the firm’s long experiment with Bitcoin. As the firm’s knowledge and understanding of all things Bitcoin evolves, Fidelity has broadened its ability to engage clients in this space— including institutional funds.

Peter Jubber, Managing Director of Fidelity Digital Funds, shares his latest thinking on emerging global trends in digital assets with Deloitte partners Rob Massey and Paul Kraft.
