    Galaxy Digital CEO Mike Novogratz shared an optimistic outlook for the future of crypto, specifically Bitcoin, in light of recent ETF approvals and the prevailing economic conditions.

    Novogratz said during the company’s latest earnings that spot Bitcoin ETFs will continue to attract “boomer wealth” that will drive adoption to unprecedented levels.

    He said:

    “With the [Bitcoin] ETF, we’ve unleashed a new era, bringing the $80 trillion baby boomer wealth into the crypto sphere.”

    Novogratz added that the influx of new money into Bitcoin combined with several macro factors paints an optimistic picture of growth for the flagship crypto.

    Adoption drivers

    According to Novogratz, the US’s escalating national debt, now exceeding $34 trillion, and the anticipated Bitcoin halving event are pivotal macro factors that could significantly boost crypto adoption this year.

    The executive emphasized the resilience and growing appeal of Bitcoin against a backdrop of financial instability. Novogratz said:

    “Until the United States and other countries get their finances in order, the narrative for Bitcoin and other digital assets will only become more compelling.”

    Novogratz further emphasized the role of the recently approved Bitcoin ETFs in democratizing access to crypto for a broader audience, particularly targeting the substantial wealth held by the baby boomer generation.

    Despite the enthusiasm surrounding Bitcoin ETFs, Novogratz also pointed out the ongoing regulatory challenges that the broader crypto market faces. He referred to the current state of affairs as a “regulatory tug of war,” especially for cryptocurrencies other than Bitcoin.

    The anticipation around the SEC decision on spot ether ETFs in May further highlights the uncertain regulatory landscape.

    IPO challenges

    Novogratz also touched on the company’s plans to go public and said the process has been “frustratingly slow” due to challenges with the SEC.

    The SEC’s cautious approach, prioritizing investor protection and market stability, often poses significant hurdles for crypto-related businesses aiming for public listing.

    Novogratz’s frustration with the SEC’s slow pace is tempered by his anticipation of possible regulatory shifts that could emerge from changes in the Commission’s leadership and the broader political landscape.

    With the upcoming presidential election, there’s a possibility of new appointments within the SEC, which could lead to a shift in regulatory stance towards more openness and efficiency in dealing with crypto-related applications.
