Two Things Deterring Institutional Crypto Buying, by Damien Vanderwilt
Damien Vanderwilt is the co-president of Galaxy Digital. He explains two things hindering many mainstream entities from buying into Bitcoin. He strongly indicated that security and taxes may be acting as deterrents for crypto investing. Recently, companies such as MicroStrategy and Tesla have invested sizable positions in Bitcoin. In a nutshell, MicroStrategy, MassMutual, Tesla, and Square have all allocated millions of dollars to Bitcoin.
Precisely, MicroStrategy has spent more than $1 billion on the asset and the company has put an additional billion into BTC. Similarly, Square also recently announced adding $170 worth of Bitcoin. According to Damien Vanderwilt : “When we think about the conversations we have with corporates and institutional clients and any part of those constituencies considering investing in the sector, the first-order problem is safety and are the assets that they’re buying going to be safe and available and secure. The second-order problem, particularly for the corporate, is tax treatment and the way that particularly under GAAP accounting in the U.S., Bitcoin is viewed as an intangible asset,” he added.
Meanwhile, the bears have been attempting to break the crucial support at $44,000. A breakdown below this support will mean that the Fibonacci tool analysis will hold. On February 23 downtrend; a retraced candle body tested the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level. The retracement implies that BTC price will fall to level 1.618 Fibonacci extension. That is the low of $36,828.80.
