That's what Su Zhu, the CEO of hedge fund Arrows Capital, said after the anti-climactic launch of crypto platform Bakkt.
You see, after the first 24 hours, the exchange recorded only 72 BTC had been entered into monthly contracts.
However, people should not be alarmed by the bleak start as regulated futures contracts mostly kick off slow. Su Zhu continued…
"The reality is that most regulated futures contracts get low adoption on day one simply because not all futures brokers are ready to clear it, many people want to wait and see, the tickers are not even populated on risk systems, etc.”
Simply, this is just the beginning.
And we expect billions to flood the crypto markets in the future and resurrect the crypto markets back to 2017 highs again.
“If you want to make a killing from cryptocurrencies – read this book as FAST as you bloody can!”
I’d like to rush you a copy of my book, Crypto Revolution, right away.
Inside you will find everything you need to understand this financial revolution…
And take maximum – potentially life-changing – advantage of it.
Including the name of the coin I am calling “The Bitcoin Killer”…
A cryptocurrency that could ultimately climb 20,000% from where it sits today.
That’s the kind of move that turns R2,500 into R500k over the longer term.
You’ll get the name of that crypto… my full case for why it could rise to become the #1 crypto in the world…
And my full analysis on the entire cryptocurrency landscape, all in my book.
The 2017 crypto bull market was largely driven by ‘small’ investors – Next time will be different
In 2017, the world finally woke up to the potential of bitcoin, blockchain and other cryptos.
Those who invested in the crypto markets were mainly private investors and individuals. And in the course of a year, crypto prices leaped between 20x and 200x higher. Some people made a fortune.
But not everyone could act quickly.
Large institutions – custodians of trillions in investment capital – couldn’t invest in the crypto market. So they largely missed the last crypto boom.
But they won’t miss the next.
Because in the time since 2017, the technology and platforms required for big institutions to access the market has been developed. And that means it’s now possible for a tidal wave of institutional cash to flow into bitcoin – and more.
is just one major example of a platform where institutional investors can access crypto markets.
Another, is asset management giant, Fidelity, which has $7 trillion under management.
Fidelity has been dealing with cryptocurrencies for a while, including trading, storing and mining cryptos. In addition, Fidelity, being one of a large institutional investment player on the market has access to both capital and clients.
By introducing more money into the cryptocurrency industry, they can bring more clients on board the bitcoin wagon, and consequently, increase the acceptance of cryptocurrencies world-wide.
One more example is crypto exchange Coinbase, which helped bring thousands of private investors into the crypto market back in 2017. Now the exchange is wooing wealthy clients and institutions too.
Did you miss ANOTHER Triple-digit gain this last month?
Those canny Pickpocket Traders didn’t - this time an 389.61% gain from a USD/ZAR trade.
And this isn’t a one-off lucky strike. Since June, Trader X and his followers have banked gains of 22.52% from a European media company... 29.41% from Standard Chartered, 31.25% from BMW, 52.88% on Brent and 65.79% on Gold
The gates are open for the big money to flood in
And I’m not the only one who shares this view.
Our resident crypto expert Sam Volkering recently said, “It won’t take much institutional cash to double or triple the size of the crypto markets. That could happen in the blink of an eye… in fact, it is already starting to happen…”
He believes we’re at the start of a much longer, more sustained and more profitable phase in the development cycle.
And this could lead to gains of 150 times your money or more over the long term.
This spells exciting things for crypto. But it also may mean you’re running out of time to invest before the market is dominated by the ‘big’ investors.
See you next week.
