Institutional investors are getting into the Bitcoin market via OTC trading platforms. Currently, the OTC trading market is said to be over two times the size of regulated exchanges with some desks handling over $100 million a day in transactions.
However, the entry of more institutional players is huge news for the crypto industry. According to many crypto pundits, institutionalized investors are the missing element needed to kick-start the cryptocurrency price recovery journey. This is after the spectacular price dip that occurred at the beginning of the year, which dragged down the market into a bearish stretch.
