Bank of America Corp (NYSE: BAC) asked 200 fund managers with $533 billion worth of assets under management.

As CNBC points out, Bitcoin’s price is up nearly nine-fold over the past year.

Last month the bank published a research titled “Bitcoin’s Dirty Little Secrets,” where it called Bitcoin’s volatility "impractical" as a store of value or a payments mechanism. It stated that there's “no good reason to own Bitcoin unless you see prices going up."

Earlier today, the leading cryptocurrency also reached a new all-time high price of over $63,000 for the first time ever, and it was traded at $63,194 at press time.
