Fidelity Investments announced Tuesday that it will begin offering Bitcoin to 401(k) investors, making it the first provider to do so.

By mid-2022, the Bitcoin service will be offered to 23,000 employers who use Fidelity to manage their retirement.

Fidelity is the nation’s largest retirement plan provider, with $11.3 trillion in assets under management, and its choice might help Bitcoin become even more mainstream.

“There is growing interest from plan sponsors for vehicles that enable them to provide their employees access to digital assets in defined contribution plans, and in turn from individuals with an appetite to incorporate cryptocurrencies into their long-term investment strategies,” said Dave Gray, head of workplace retirement offerings and platforms at Fidelity.

Bitcoin in the DAA will be on the Fidelity digital asset custody infrastructure. According to Fidelity this will assure institutional-grade security.
