Hedge Fund Taking Bitcoin Seriously

In a time where many of the experts around the world is busy telling the world why Bitcoins and cryptocurrencies in general is a bad idea, a large hedge fund from San Francisco is searching for a “Junior Bitcoin Execution Trader”. The job offering was made through Glocap Search and specified in the offering that ” Bitcoin and Cryptocurrency knowledge is a plus, but not required”.

Potential candidates has been asked to be comfortable working with uncertainty and be willing to work with a new type of market that does not have any industry standards yet. Later on the company decided to remove all references to Bitcoin’s and cryptocurrencies, but the description makes it pretty clear what the job is about.

“We felt on reflection that we’d be able to reach the right people and to assess candidates’ genuine interest in trading and trading ops the way the posting was written,”, said Glocap Search’s Anthony Keizner. They might have a point as many traders are not sincerely interested in trading in unknown markets such as the cryptocurrencies, but might still be the right person for the job.

It has not been announced exactly which hedge fund it is that is currently searching for a cryptocurrency trader, but speculations has been made because of an article in Fortune Magazine where Pantera Capital and Fortress Investment Group claimed to wanted to start a Bitcoin fund.
