The Bitcoin (BTC) price for 2021 is getting incredibly close to $50,000 as more major companies push the cryptocurrency higher.
Bitcoin is started to be accepted more by big companies and that’s fueling the price of the crypto in 2021. Let’s take a look at some major players that are investing in or interested in investing in bitcoin.
- Of course, starting off we have to mention Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) and its $1.5 billion investment in bitcoin last week. The company is betting big on the cryptocurrency as CEO Elon Musk leads a Reddit army to invest in the meme cryptocurrency Dogecoin (DOGE).

- Bank of New York Mellon (NYSE:BK) is also planning to support bitcoin with offers to “issue, hold, and transfer” the cryptocurrency for its customers.
- BlackRock (NYSE:BLK) is also among the investment companies that are now allowing for investments in bitcoin. The company revealed as much during a filing last month concerning bitcoin futures.
- Galaxy Digital (OTCMKTS:BRPHF) is also a company that invests in bitcoin with 16,400 bitcoin in its possession.
- MicroStrategy also fits into this with roughly 71,000 bitcoin in its vault.
