Cryptos Suddenly Spike As Grayscale Sees Institutional Interest Double

A sea of green across the crypto space - though we note Tether is lower...

While cryptos have been turbulent recently, CoinTelegraph's William Suberg reports that a senior executive at cryptocurrency asset management giant Grayscale has stated that institutional investors are constantly piling into the space in 2019.

Grayscale says institutions were always active

Speaking in an interview with news outlet The Block on Oct. 8, the company's director of sales and business development Rayhaneh Sharif-Askary said that business had been consistent while growing throughout this year.

Q2 alone saw $85 million come from investors — twice as much as in Q1 — with institutional investors contributing more than 80% in total. Sharif-Askary explained:

"You know, it's really funny, I get asked this a lot - there's this rhetoric in the media about when are institutional investors going to get involved, when are they going to start investing, and it's so funny because it's ironic. We see institutional investors invest with us all the time and that's been the case for a long time now."
