THE TWO BIG FAVORITES OF INSTITUTIONS ARE BTC AND ETHEREUM
The Cointelegraph media released a global poll on “institutional demand for cryptocurrencies” on October 19, 2022. The Inst. investors are undoubtedly aware of what is going on in the cryptosphere, at the absolute least, is what we can conclude.

Speaking of Bitcoin, these affluent investment funds continue to view it as their favorite asset class. 94% of the Bitcoin is in the hands of cryptocurrency owners. It should be mentioned nevertheless that Ethereum (ETH) also looks to be quite well-liked by institutions. So, ethers are 75% likely to be present. With 31% ownership each, stablecoins and tokenized securities (securities) follow.
STRATEGIES FOR INVESTMENT THAT DON’T EVEN WAIT FOR THE BULL RUN TO BEGIN
As a result, our beloved “whales” are already out and running, with a stated plan for buying cryptoassets to benefit from the sector’s upcoming phase of expansion. This study also supports the finding from the introduction that huge funds won’t wait to invest until the SEC has ultimately decided to authorize a Bitcoin spot ETF.
