As a fast-growing financial asset class, cryptocurrency was born with a very unique set of early trading participants, infrastructure providers and regulatory frameworks. Many financial professionals struggle to understand the technical aspects of blockchain technology. Many still believe that this asset class will disappear from public attention within one or two years, drawing an analogy with the tulip mania in 1637. Mainstream players are slowly finding the right pace and angle to enter the industry, including investment banks, brokers, auditing firms, trading firms, hedge funds, custodian service providers and technology vendors. Regulators in different countries are also taking very different stance towards the adoption of cryptocurrency for different purposes. The stage of development of blockchain technology currently, resembles that of the internet in the 1990s, when there were both hypes of its grand future and negative attitudes towards its shortcomings. The interweaving relationship between blockchain technology and cryptocurrency provides an opportunity for financial professionals to have an edge in a newly forming technology paradigm. In the coming years, we should expect to see rapid development and progress made in this space, as more ordinary people start to benefit from blockchain-enabled services, more improvement made in security and user experience for cryptocurrency trading and more comprehensive regulatory frameworks established.
