The head of the world’s largest financial asset management company announced a change in his attitude towards Bitcoin for the better, CNBC reports.

He also noted that the emergence of digital currencies has a direct impact on the dollar and leads to the loss of its relevance on a global scale for international holders of dollar assets. “Does this change the need for the dollar as a reserve currency?” – he asked a question.

BlackRock is the world’s largest investment company by assets under management. The cost of its capital at the end of 2019 was estimated at $ 7.4 trillion.
