Bitcoin price may hit a $50,000 valuation should institutional investors allocate as little as 1 percent of their net portfolio worth into BTC, says Messari.
The New York-based crypto data aggregator wrote that in an “illustrative analysis,” published on Tuesday.
It discussed a scenario wherein all the institutional investors, including pension funds, endowments & foundations, family offices, and hedge funds, have at least 1 percent exposure in Bitcoin.
The analysis anticipated a capital inflow worth hundreds of billions of dollars into the cryptocurrency market.
It added that the money injection might get further multiplied by 2x-25x due to higher “liquidity and reflexivity.” “
Depending on your assumptions, an aggregate 1% institutional allocation to Bitcoin can easily bring Bitcoin’s market cap above $1 trillion,” wrote Ryan Watkins, a researcher at Messari.
“This is why enthusiasts get so excited about the prospect of institutional inflows. 1% is a lot when everyone does it.”
Messari’s analysis came at a time when Bitcoin is trading 150 percent higher from its yearly lows below $4,000.
The cryptocurrency, nevertheless, repeatedly failed to materialize its bullish bias beyond a specific technical resistance range of $10,000-$10,500.
The limited upside showed that not many mainstream investors are willing to gain exposure in the Bitcoin market.
That is despite a growing optimism regarding Bitcoin’s potential role against an ongoing economic crisis. Mr. Watkins noted that institutions typically invest on behalf of their clients.
They have, therefore, a “fiduciary duty” to invest in assets that yield decent profits but with lower risks.
On the other hand, Bitcoin remains an asset surrounded by red flags related to regulatory uncertainty, infrastructure immaturity, and whatnot. “[Investors] simply cannot bear risk like retail investors can without taking the necessary time and effort to get comfortable,” wrote Mr. Watkins.
But there are exceptions like Paul Tudor Jones, a veteran hedge fund manager who in May allocated 1-3 percent of his $22 billion-portfolio to bitcoin futures. Mr. Watkins cited him and his reasons to invest in a unique asset as a benchmark for other institutional investors.
“Among the most likely to invest in Bitcoin are hedge funds, which have some of the most flexible investment mandates,” he stated.
“Hedge funds can virtually invest in any asset class and financial instrument they agree to with their [limited partnerships].“
