On Wednesday, Franklin Templeton, with over $ 1.4 trillion in assets under management, posted an open position for a Research Analyst – Crypto Currency on LinkedIn.

According to the LinkedIn post, the traditional multinational holding company that provides investment solutions to 34 countries around the world is looking to hire someone to provide “research coverage” for Bitcoin.

The research analyst would “develop and maintain valuation models and keep portfolio managers and officers informed of various regulatory protocols, staking and business opportunities.”

Franklin Templeton already employs over 12,000 people in 34 countries. The company has yet to say whether it intends to provide any form of Bitcoin investment vehicle or exposure.

This year, it has become common for huge American companies to hire people for bitcoin and crypto executive positions. In August, Walmart, one of the largest retailers in the world, began looking for a “Digital Currency and Cryptocurrency Product Lead” to “own and advance the digital currency strategy.”

In July, Amazon began looking for a Digital Currency and Blockchain Product Lead for its Payment Acceptance & Experience team, responsible for enabling billions of online customer payments through the websites and services of one of the largest e-commerce companies in the world.

All of these giant companies have the potential to introduce and cater to millions of customers with Bitcoin.
