Bitcoin value is rising fast after Britain’s largest online trading platform, Hargreaves Lansdown, allows its customers to invest in bitcoin, according to the Telegraph (link above).
There are so many amazing things going on that are raising bitcoin value.
Bitcoin Value Up On Swedish ETN
Hargreaves Landsown is providing this service via a Swedish based bitcoin ETN offered by XBT Provider. In other words, Sweden is moving fast to become a leader in the digital currency while back in the U.S., the SEC is busy blocking any type of BTC ETF or ETN on the grounds of transparency.
Hargreaves Lansdown customers can now buy BTC in their personal pension (Sipp) or a normal brokerage account. When did you ever think that you would see BTC being offered in a pension fund? Nice!
