Berkshire Hathaway buys $1B in a Bitcoin-friendly bank, should investors react and buy more BTC?

  • US Senators proposed new legislation that aims to mitigate risks posed by El Salvador's adoption of Bitcoin.

  • This bill would mandate the State Department to investigate El Salvador's process to make Bitcoin legal tender.

  • Warren Buffett has invested $1 billion in a crypto-friendly bank.

Bitcoin (BTC) is one of the most heavily-discussed cryptocurrency tokens, both due to the fact that it has the largest market capitalization and that it is one of the most mainstream tokens out there.

Just about everyone's heard about Bitcoin (BTC) by this point; however, with this kind of knowledge regarding the token, we have seen a lot of developments in its adoption.

Legislation developments and large investments as a catalyst for growth

A group of Senators within the United States has put forward legislation that will require the State Department to report, as well as develop a plan of mitigating potential risks which are posed by El Salvador’s Bitcoin law.

This bill would require the State Department to report on El Salvador’s Bitcoin moves if the proposed legislation is passed.

The Senators have a genuine belief that the Central American country’s Bitcoin law raises significant concerns, and the legislation gives the State Department 60 days to generate a report on El Salvador’s adoption of the leading cryptocurrency, assuming the bill passes.

Additionally, Warren Buffet invested $1 billion in a crypto-friendly bank. In other words, his company, Berkshire Hathaway, has bought $1 billion worth of stock in a digital bank with a focus on cryptocurrency. This bank is known as Nubank, which is a digital bank based in Brazil and the largest of its kind.

The bank’s investment unit, NuInvest, essentially allows users to put money in a Bitcoin exchange-traded fund (ETF).
