Genesis’ Noelle Acheson Expects Financial Institutions to Step Up Investments in Crypto Assets and Crypto Firms Next Year
In chatting with CNBC’s Squawk Box co-host Joe Kernen, head of market analysis at Genesis Global Trading, Noelle Acheson, shared her outlook for institutional investments in the crypto industry over the coming year 2022. .
It appears she expects these investments to see a significant boost.
“Strong signs of an acceleration of institutional investments in 2022”
While discussing the prospects for the crypto space for the year approaching 2022, CNBC veteran Joe Kernen asked which areas of the crypto space are worth watching closely. As an example, he named Bitcoin ETFs, Bitcoin Institutional Adoption, Regulatory Adjustments, and more.
Noelle Acheson said that this year she expects continued institutional growth in the crypto space to be as it has already been in this astonishing year. And in 2022, Acheson believes, that will only accelerate.
Investing in a risky, high-yield crypto
Speaking of “institutional growth,” the Genesis expert mentioned both token direct investment and investing in companies that work in the cryptocurrency space that are building its infrastructure. She mentioned that 2021 has seen 40 companies turn into unicorns, presumably in the crypto space.
Apart from that, according to Acheson, financial institutions seem keen to diversify their crypto portfolio and opt for other crypto tokens besides Bitcoin, even those considered risky but with higher yield.
This is happening despite the fact that a year ago, Bitcoin was the only crypto that institutions were interested in. This year they are investing in Grayscale altcoin trusts and buying altcoins as promising as Solana (SOL) and Terra (LUNA).
