It is fair to assume that, metaphorically, institutional investors have been the core of the cryptocurrency industry. In the early stages of Bitcoin’s launch, retail investors who were more eager to try their luck with a fresh new asset are rightly credited as the leaders of the historic bullish wave that peaked in 2017. At this point, the institutions were already behind on their adoption, and as if 2020 was a year to make up for the “late-coming” institutional investors, they came into the market and never looked back.
The consequence, huh? A thriving bitcoin industry that’s more promising than ever before. Institutional investments have also raised Bitcoin’s price, while at the same time shifting market dynamics (how much is being shortened, purchased, and sold) and at what point this is part of the proof that control has changed hands and that institutional investors are championing the latest bullish wave that is now spiralling through the new year.
Institutional interest in Bitcoin has interestingly not yet hit its height. In fact, this is considered to be the beginning point, and a handful of investors are expected to join the preceding years. The weakening of the US dollar’s buying power is a clear indicator that institutions are awake and ready to store their resources on any secure and promising platform.
Gold used to be the go-go, but the bitcoin halving process markets the finite supply incredibility. On the other hand, it might seem that investors are increasingly realising that the USD is becoming less and less redeemable.
For institutional investors, rising inflation is already apparent, and bitcoin is the best way out for the next few years.
