Australian superannuation fund Rest Super is set to become the first retirement fund in the country to invest in cryptocurrencies.
The fund has more than $46.8 billion worth of assets under management and around 1.8 million members. Superannuation is the equivalent of a 401k or Individual Retirement Account in the United States and is compulsory for all employees. Until now, the $2.4-trillion sector has been extremely cautious about cryptocurrency.
