Raoul Pal has revealed the latest news on Bitcoin investments and mainstream adoption during a recent podcast appearance.
Raoul Pal revealed news concerning Temasek, Singapore’s sovereign wealth fund, and their Bitcoin journey.
This report states that Singapore wealth fund Temasek, who currently manages over $306 billion in assets, has been buying Bitcoin from miners. Temasek’s Bitcoin investment marks a big turning point in the growing mainstream adoption of Bitcoin.
This shows that following Fortune 500 companies, a good number of financial giants have begun to look into the Bitcoin space for their investments. It is also pertinent to note that Temasek is not new to the crypto space. The sovereign wealth fund manager had earlier invested in Binance Singapore. Besides, Temasek assisted Binance to gain a crypto license when the latter came into Singapore in 2018.

Bitcoin Set for Massive Mainstream Adoption
During the podcast, Raoul Pal and Robert Gutmann, CEO of New York Digital Investment Group, discussed whether governments would follow in the footsteps of financial firms and the Temasek sovereign fund in adopting Bitcoin.
Gutmann notes that investors are looking to hedge the dollar-dominated liabilities they currently possess. He says, “If you look at the world today on a forward basis, it is reasonable to be asking yourself as an investment committee or as an allocation committee [if] having all of [their] assets denominated in dollars against dollar-denominated liabilities is the right allocation mix.”
Following this trend, traditional financial giants like Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley have also started providing their institutional clients with Bitcoin services.
Heightened Demand for Bitcoin ETF
With a $1 trillion market cap, Bitcoin has recorded an increased demand for Bitcoin ETFs in the United States. The first Bitcoin ETF in North America, Purpose Bitcoin ETF in Canada, has been a success. Its first day of trading saw a staggering trading volume of $165 million. Following that success, many financial giants and agencies have filed for Bitcoin ETFs. Just recently, Fidelity and Goldman Sachs filed for Bitcoin ETFs.

At present, the U.S. has reportedly recorded a total of eight Bitcoin ETF proposals. The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has acknowledged VanEck’s application. This implies that the SEC will look into its application and would either approve or reject it within the next 45 days.
Prior to these recent ETF applications, the SEC and other regulatory bodies have rejected past applications for the reason that the markets were not well equipped for an ETF. With the look of things regarding the Bitcoin trillion-dollar market cap and heightened Bitcoin demand, the first Bitcoin ETF may make its way into the U.S. by the end of the year.
