Institutional Taste for Bitcoin

In a note to investors, Etoro crypto analyst Simon Peters spoke about bitcoin’s (BTC) recent price movements and volatility. Peters said lower prices could be “on the cards” but the analyst “doesn’t think it would last as long, [as] the cat is out of the bag with bitcoin. “

“This price movement is a perfectly natural correction, one that occurs in all assets once the market has considered them a bit over-thought,” Peters wrote. “And while the price is falling, sitting at just over $ 31,000 at the time of writing, the demand for bitcoin is not.”

Etoro’s crypto analyst added:

Appetite among institutional investors continues to grow with people like Grayscale investment trust buying $ 600m of the crypto asset in one day this week and Blackrock, the world’s largest asset manager, announced that two of its funds will trade in future bitcoin derivatives.

Onchain Analyst Says Bitcoin Miners May Be Dumped

Growing FUD

No one really knows what will happen from here in the realm of crypto assets and the growing economy. In recent weeks, much fear, uncertainty and doubt (FUD) has been circulating wildly while crypto-assets like bitcoin (BTC) have been bullish.

There has been considerable regulatory turmoil, uncertainty over the Biden administration, negative comments from Janet Yellen and Christine Lagarde, Mt Gox negotiations, environmental arguments over test work, tether argument (USDT), and recent Ledger customer data hack. Despite all the FUD, proponents of cryptocurrency still seem very optimistic about the future of crypto assets in 2021.
