Bullish news for Bitcoin emerged as Fidelity, one of the major issuers of 401(k) retirement plans in the United States, has announced that members will be able to put a portion of their retirement portfolio into BTC, assuming that their employers permit it.

In 2018, Fidelity became one of the first large financial institutions to warm up to the then-rising asset class by launching a number of Bitcoin-centric products and services.

Dogecoin leads crypto market gains

Finally, the crypto market sentiment is also buoyed by the announcement that crypto proponent Elon Musk has finalized the purchase of Twitter for $45 billion.

In turn, Musk’s very cryptocurrency Dogecoin (DOGE) has experienced an enormous spike in the last 24 hours. At press time, DOGE was trading at $0.1652, up 32.68% over 24 hours and 18.16% across the week.

Specifically, DOGE has added over $5 billion to its market cap in 24 hours as it leads the top 100 cryptocurrencies in terms of total gains. Finally, Finbold recently reported DOGE has just reached a four-month high in transactions by whales, suggesting that they may be positioning for a big price move in the future.
