In contrast to the high-times by the end of 2017, resulting in which private investors in Bitcoin & co. to values almost daily new record should have the current upward trend of institutional investors to place their Finger in the game. The CEO of the largest American crypto-Brokers Coinbase, Brian Armstrong, said that in a recent Interview that the volume of trading by institutional investors exceed, in the meantime, the private investors. In particular, the specifically for institutional investors appointed custodian Trustee can look forward to the currencies service for Crypto on an inflow of 150 million US dollars in new deposits from customers per month.

This Trend is also supported by the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME), one of the largest Options and futures exchanges in the world. The CME recorded the new record in the volume of trading of Bitcoin Futures, which is mainly due to institutional investors back lead.

Bakkt and Fidelity chomping at the bit

Without a target group-oriented investment options will not be invested. In addition to fundamental Doubts on the crypto-market, this was one of the main reasons why professional investors have yet to crypto-currencies have made. This objection, which will shortly be supplied by the Futures exchange Bakkt and asset management Fidelity crypto-financial services that are tailored to the needs of institutional investors. Both financial service providers would like to offer this summer on their products.

The Futures exchange Bakkt is an Initiative of the major Intercontinental Exchange, a heavyweight in the trade with options and Futures. Under this umbrella, two physically-backed Bitcoin Futures to be offered to the trade. These do not only guarantee high regulatory Standards, but also a liquid trading. The asset management Fidelity is one of the largest investment houses in the world and would also like to go in a timely manner with a Bitcoin Trading Desk, as well as crypto-custodian service at the Start. Both of these heavyweights have the potential to win significant sums from institutional investors.

The way of the order book over: Over-the-Counter

The most common way, by the institutional investors in Bitcoin & co. at least those who are not allowed to acquire only regulated crypto – derivatives is the Over - the-Counter trading (OTC) with crypto-exchanges and brokers. So much of the Bitcoin-OTC-volumes by institutional investors, according to a report from Bloomberg. The purchase or sale of crypto takes place currencies directly between the Exchange and the Investor. An Order in the order book does not appear here. Major crypto-exchanges like Kraken or itBit of Paxos to provide this Service which often come with ticket sizes of US $ 100,000. Small investors, not to speak of this Service accordingly.

In this way, institutional investors can discreetly and without affecting the rates to be negative in larger commercial transactions. A Bitcoin sell order of five million US dollars in a medium-sized crypto would, for example, the exchange would remove the risk of a negative price dynamics and, thus, lower sales enormously high.

Still in the beginning

Despite the demonstrable progress of the crypto-market is comparatively unprofessional, non-transparent and small. Many crypto exchanges-scandals through manipulated trading volume, insider trading and hacking attacks, many institutional investors are unsettled as before. The more important well-established financial intermediaries, which are able to be able to of regulated products and solutions.

in Particular, Exchange-Traded Funds (ETFs) are therefore expected not only from institutional investors but also private investors eagerly. To offer you an easy and safe way to acquire small amounts in the securities account in the house Bank. The latest efforts to approve such a Bitcoin ETF, however, either failed or were postponed by the Supervisory authorities. It is quite in order to that crypto-ETFs are yet to come this year. Finally, the Supervisory authorities have little interest in ensuring that investors have to resort to unregulated or even decentralized exchanges.

For private investors to purchase "real" Bitcoin and independent of financial service providers would like to be, come the traditional financial products and Trustee services provider, however, is in question. Instead of securities, it means the Wallet and Private Key with all the and all the disadvantages.
