Real Institutional Adoption has Already Started For Bitcoin
Brian Brooks is in favor of crypto adoption by banks and traditional finance institutions since beginning and today again he voices his belief that banks should work towards crypto adoption.
“What we do need is clarity about what is allowed, and so we need some guidance for example whether banks can connect directly to blockchains as payment networks–the answer has to be yes,” says @BrianBrooksOCC. #btc #bitcoin pic.twitter.com/yNOBqTZfIN

When asked about more crypto regulations, he said,
We don’t need 50 regulations instead of two, what we need is clarity on what is allowed.
He is very optimistic on banks implementing blockchains for payments and is convinced that soon we will see favorable crypto guidelines. He mentioned that in next few weeks or so there shall be clarity:
- For crypto investors how to invest in cryptocurrencies
- How institutions can enter this asset class
He said these are the two things that are driving the prices of bitcoin rather than just speculation.
