Several of the world’s largest companies are already deploying bitcoin or other blockchains as a way to improve internal transparency and efficiency. But what are we to do as investors?
There are surprisingly few choices today for those eager to gain exposure to this fledgling technology that many believe could change the world. You can buy bitcoin directly on a variety of new exchanges, like Coinbase or Bitstamp, but many of these charge elevated transaction fees. You can buy into the publicly traded Bitcoin Investment Trust (NASDAQOTH:GBTC), but as my Foolish colleagues Matt Frankel and Jordan Wathen recently pointed out, this comes with its share of risks, as well.
