Blockchain will help ‘drive the next industrial revolution,’ a Wall Street bull predicts

[/vc_column_text] [vc_column_text el_class=”topfeed-summary-list”]

  • One of Wall Street’s biggest bulls sees blockchain playing a big role as an economic growth driver.
  • It still may be considered an emerging technology, but Federated Investors portfolio manager Steve Chiavarone is folding the electronic system, which records cryptocurrency transactions, into his stock market forecast.
  • Bitcoin, which has been referred to as the FANG stock of the crypto world, has been struggling to break $10,000 just months after hitting a record price just shy of $20,000 last December.
  • In fact, Chiavarone sees FANG stocks, which include top tech names Facebook, Amazon, Netflix and Google [Alphabet], as ultimately reaping benefits from blockchain’s processing power as well as areas from health care to financials.
  • A lot of investors went to bitcoin first because it was the first way to access blockchain, added Chiavarone.

  • So, you know, I had to get a little piece of that action, Williams adds.
