Frontier: Amber's 2021 vision aligned with BlackRock's Future Outlook 


"History often rhymes rather than repeats itself." BlackRock CEO Larry Fink's recent recognition of Bitcoin's borderless nature and potential to transform the global finance system echoes Amber CEO Michael Wu's views from a 2021 interview.


The entrance of TradFi into the crypto market is not a new phenomenon, as we observed a similar trend in 2020. Our CEO, Michael Wu, has long recognized the tremendous potential of Bitcoin early on. In a 2021 CNBC interview, he expressed his belief that Bitcoin could surpass gold as a long-term store of value. Furthermore, he shared the view that Ethereum has the potential to build a decentralized financial ecosystem and disrupt legacy finance, which aligns with the perspective of industry experts like Larry Fink.
