Cambridge Associates Encourages Institutional Investors

Cambridge Associates has encouraged large institutions which are known to control over $300 billion, to take the chance and invest in cryptocurrencies. The first step is by taking “a considerable amount of time learning about the space,”. The firm also suggests surveying the different ways investments can be made either through venture capital fund or purchasing tokens directly from cryptocurrency exchanges.
Cambridge Analysts in a note to Bloomberg stated that:

Despite the challenges, we believe that it is worthwhile for investors to begin exploring this area today with an eye toward the long term. Though these investments entail a high degree of risk, some may very well upend the digital world.’

Institutional Investors, One of the Keys to Crypto Massive Adoption

Institutional investors are believed to be one of the keys that will encourage the massive adoption of bitcoin and altcoins. There are expectations that they can bring more credibility to the market. By their investments, it shows their confidence in the market. There is also the prospect of more money being pumped into the market through their investments.
Nonetheless, large institutions are known to be reluctant when it comes to investing in virtual currencies. The reason has usually been attributed to the way these assets are used to facilitate crimes such as money laundering. The unregulated and volatile nature of the market has also made them steer away from it. Bitcoin, for instance, has devalued by over 80 percent since its bubble in December 2017.
