Employees within the firm kept an eye on the digital asset segment for more than 6 years and have watched it secure.

As such, it shows that the firm has been actively involved.
According to Quartz “one of Fidelity’s projects is mining bitcoin and ethereum, which Johnson said was started for educational purposes, but now turns a tidy profit. “We set up a small bitcoin and ethereum mining operation…that miraculously now is actually making a lot of money,” she said.
