Catherine Wood, CEO of Ark Investment Management, told CNBC that bitcoin is a “bigger idea” than Apple.

Catherine said:

“I know a lot of people say, ‘don’t compare this to Apple, which is nearing a trillion dollars, but this is so much bigger than even Apple, which is a pretty big idea.”

She told her fund cannot own bitcoin directly. So in 2015, Ark Investment Management bought shares of the Bitcoin Investment Trust. At that time, Bitcoin was trading less than $250. But this month, it as close to $20,000.

Wall Street strategist Tom Lee foretells that the Bitcoin Investment Trust could triple in value by 2022 if his bitcoin price predictions prove to be correct.

At present, the Bitcoin Investment Trust – the flagship product of Barry Silbert’s Grayscale Investment is the only publicly-quoted bitcoin investment vehicle in the U.S market which is available to institutional investors. Most of the firms that have applied for bitcoin ETFs, GBTC holds the underlying assets directly rather than trading in derivatives contracts.
