If all this firms go in bitcoin concurrency market the price of bitcoin will definitely go to 25-30.000 $ this year. Time to buy when the price is as low as 9 000$.
A fifth of finance firms are considering getting into cryptocurrency trading within the next year, according to an industry poll by Thomson Reuters. A survey of over 400 Thomson Reuters clients found that one in five is considering getting into crypto, with the majority weighing a push into the market within the next six months. Interest in cryptocurrencies surged in the second half of 2017 as the price of bitcoin surged. The mainstream interest culminated in CME and CBOE launching bitcoin futures in December. But these products have been thinly traded and institutional interest in cryptocurrencies remains a niche concern. There are over 200 cryptocurrency-focused hedge funds globally,according to fintech research firm Autonomous Next, but their combined assets under management are only $5 billion at a maximum. The cryptocurrency market has stalled since the start of the year, declining from $800 billion in value in December to around $400 billion as of Monday.
Bill Barhydt, the CEO of American Express-backed cryptocurrency startup Abra, told Business Insider last month: "I talk to hedge funds, high net worth individuals, even commodity speculators. They look at the volatility in the crypto markets and they see it as a huge opportunity. Once that happens, all hell will break loose."
