Fidelity Investments’ digital assets division will increase its hiring this year to cater to its increasing list of clients who invest and trade in crypto assets. The company is looking to fill 210 new client service, technology, and operations positions. Currently, Fidelity Digital Assets employs nearly 200 people, who cater to clients who want to invest in crypto assets that trade continuously.
"As the demand for digital assets grows and the market evolves, we will continue to expand our hiring efforts," said Tom Jessop, president of Fidelity Digital Assets.
Fidelity Investments became the first major retirement plan provider last month to allow individuals to invest a portion of their savings in Bitcoin through their 401(k) plans.
The hiring comes just weeks after cryptocurrencies experienced a significant drop following the collapse of the Stablecoin, TerraUSD. Stablecoins are digital tokens whose value is linked to the value of traditional assets.
