2020 will have publicly-traded cryptocurrency firms Barry Silbert – FXStreet

Barry Silbert, the CEO of Digital Currency Group (DCC), has predicted that there will be publicly-traded cryptocurrency companies in 2020. He said that special-purpose acquisition companies (SPACs) have been approaching him with merger pitches in a recent tweet.

SPACs are shell companies that raise money from IPO investors to invest in operating businesses later. While going through the usual IPO can take months, going public through a SPAC IPO is possible within just a few weeks.

Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse had made a similar prediction at the World Economic Forum in Davos in January. He claimed that there would be IPOs in the blockchain space and Ripple would lead that trend.

In the next 12 months, youll see IPOs in the crypto/blockchain space. Were not going to be the first and were not going to be the last, but I expect us to be on the leading side its a natural evolution for our company.
