No longer is bitcoin for the enthusiast, it would seem. With increasing popularity, businesses — and now financial institutions — are looking to get their hands into the pot.
Case in point: A San Francisco-based hedge fund is seeking to bring aboard what they call a “Junior Bitcoin Execution Trader”, according to a job posting by Glocap that was emailed to a list of subscribers.
The hedge fund’s (unclear just which one) “seeking a junior trader to assist with bitcoin execution, general fund operations, and reporting.”
We’ve seen interest in bitcoin from hedge funds before, but this is the first bit of news that suggests a hedge fun is looking to hire a bitcoin specialist.
Whether or not this is a sign of things to come is yet to be seen, though. (via Vice)
