Institutional investors and crypto trading: Will they or won't they?
February 11, 2019 7:22 am
Whispers that “Institutional Investors are coming to crypto” have been bandied about for the past year and a half or so. Names of some high-profile institutions are being dropped in relation to the development of cryptocurrency products, including Goldman Sachs’ creation of crypto custody and derivatives products, Fidelity’s cryptocurrency trading company, Nasdaq’s plan to launch Bitcoin Futures contracts, and NYSE’s owner’s cryptocurrency platform focussed on institutional investors. Yet will the 2018 downturn in value of cryptocurrencies have a decisively negative impact on large institutional players joining in? Or does the prospect of institutional investors mean a maturing of the markets and fresh influx of capital?
