Bitcoin: Inwestorzy instytucjonalni zamierzają masowo inwestować w BTC

Raoul Pal mówi, że inwestorzy instytucjonalni są przygotowani do masowego inwestowania w Bitcoin.

Dodał, że te instytucje spowodowały, że popyt na monetę przekroczył poziom podaży

W niedawnym wywiadzie z Bostjanem Usenikiem Raoul Pal, wielki inwestor Bitcoin i współzałożyciel Real Vision, powiedział, że więcej inwestorów instytucjonalnych jest teraz gotowych do zakupu wiodących aktywów kryptograficznych.

Pal zauważył, że każda instytucja, z którą rozmawiał, wykazała się gotowością do zakupu Bitcoin. Dodał, że zatwierdzenie ETF BTC również znacznie zmieniłoby sposób działania branży.

Według Pal, Bitcoin jest aktywem, którego nigdy wcześniej nie widziano w historii branży finansowej. W ciągu ostatnich pięciu do dziesięciu lat moneta udowodniła, że ​​jest jednym z najbardziej dochodowych aktywów.

Współzałożyciel Real Vision powiedział ponadto, że „instytucje nie weszły jeszcze w pełni w świat kryptowalut”. Uważa, że ​​kiedy w końcu to zrobią, będzie to ogromne dla szybko zmieniającego się zasobu.

Inwestorzy instytucjonalni w Bitcoin napędzają popyt ponad poziom podaży

Raoul Pal powiedział Bostjanowi, że popyt na Bitcoin przez instytucje takie jak PayPal, CashApp, Grayscale i inne nie jest obecnie zaspokajany przez obecny poziom podaży aktywów.

Były zarządzający funduszem w Goldman Sachs mówi, że instytucje te gromadzą swoje monety, ponieważ spodziewają się również, że cena aktywów będzie nadal rosła. Doprowadziło to do prawie całkowitego braku podaży monety; zamiast tego zapotrzebowanie na nią wciąż rośnie.

PayPal niedawno umożliwił swoim użytkownikom w Stanach Zjednoczonych kupowanie Bitcoinów za pośrednictwem swojej platformy. Z drugiej strony Grayscale posiada jeden z największych trustów BTC. Firma posiada obecnie ponad 10 miliardów dolarów aktywów cyfrowych.

Instytucje takie jak MicroStrategy, firma Mass Mutual Insurance i inne również przechowują tysiące aktywów kryptograficznych.

SkyBridge files bitcoin hedge fund with SEC

Hedge fund manager Anthony Scaramucci’s investment firm has filed an application with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to become a Bitcoin hedge fund.

The minimum investment is to be $50,000 and will be available only to accredited investors.

According to an SEC form dated December 21, the multi-billion hedge fund „SkyBridge Capital“ has submitted an application to the U.S. SEC for the authorization of a Bitcoin fund. It lists „SkyBridge Bitcoin Fund L.P.“ as the issuer and „SkyBridge Bitcoin Fund GP LLC“ as the reference person. The fund is to be classified as a hedge fund. Since Anthony Scaramucci’s company is keeping quiet about the investment volume, it is not possible to draw any conclusions about the size of the fund so far. However, it is known that the minimum sum for investors is to amount to 50,000 US dollars. Furthermore, only accredited investors can invest in the fund.

Bitcoin on a record run!

There were first reports of a bitcoin fund being approved as early as mid-November. With this, SkyBridge follows the lead wolf Grayscale. Only recently, the financial company Guggenheim invested in the digital gold through the world’s largest Bitcoin fund, the Grayscale Bitcoin Trust. As a result, the Bitcoin fund now holds Bitcoin equivalent to over ten billion US dollars. BTC is by far the most important asset in Grayscale’s crypto portfolio, which recently reported a new record of $13 billion in assets under management (AUM).

Bitcoin funds also in Germany

In Germany, a new venture capital fund is seeking to provide financial support to crypto companies. The early stage crypto VC of Greenfield One, based in Berlin, is launching its second fund for this purpose in a first closing with a target volume of 50 million euros. The main focus of the second fund is on blockchain networks and developer teams of mainly European teams. The first Greenfield One fund was launched in early 2019. Since then, the VC fund has invested in various early-stage startups.

JPMorgan on Bitcoin purchase from MassMutual: Crypto demand increases

Even a small investment by insurance companies and pension funds could be sizeable for Bitcoin.

The fact that MassMutual Bitcoin ( BTC ) worth $ 100 million shows that the demand for cryptocurrencies will continue to grow, according to strategists at major investment bank JPMorgan

In a notice to investors on December 11, JPMorgan strategists, including Nikolaos Panigirtzoglou, stated that Bitcoin adoption would now expand from family businesses and wealthy investors to larger investors such as insurance companies and pension funds.

As reported by Bloomberg , the experts said it was unlikely that insurance companies and pension funds would invest large amounts in Bitcoin. But even a small shift towards crypto could be sizeable.

If pension funds and insurance companies in the United States, the euro zone, the UK, and Japan invested 1 percent of their assets in Bitcoin, Bitcoin demand would grow by $ 600 billion, the strategists calculated.

That’s almost double the market capitalization of Bitcoin. According to data from CoinMarketCap, this is currently $ 356 billion

JPMorgan strategists wrote: „The Bitcoin purchases from MassMutual are another milestone in Bitcoin acceptance by institutional investors. […] You can see the potential demand that could arise in the coming years when other insurance companies and pension funds are following the example of MassMutual.“

Massachusetts-based insurance company MassMutual announced on Dec. 11 that the company had bought $ 100 million in bitcoin and added it to its general investment account. MassMutual told Cointelegraph that the investment was part of an overall strategy. The aim of this strategy is to „achieve a moderate but meaningful commitment in a growing economic aspect of our increasingly digital world.“

In addition to MassMutual, the large institutional company MicroStrategy has also bought Bitcoin. The company announced plans to raise $ 400 million in a securities offering to invest the money in BTC. MicroStrategy has made Bitcoin to its primary asset, after the company in August and September Bitcoin worth 425 million US dollars to buy has.
