This week This seems like the 100th time this year we’ve discussed ETF in the cryptocurrency space, but we can’t help it. Not because we just love ETFs, but because it is one of the most talked about subjects currently. This week we give an explanation of ETF’s mutual funds, index funds, IRAs and more. When are the bulls coming? So, the real discussion here is, when will crypto meet mass investing potential? To do that, there would need to be institutions involved and actively trading the asset. Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies have solidified themselves as a legitimate asset class, but retail investors will take decades to move the market in any large-scale way. What are all of these acronyms? All of these investment acronyms are enough to make your head hurt. We explain, briefly, what they all are, but there is one main takeaway. As the crypto space grows and becomes more of a major financial asset, there are many ways it will be traded, invested, and speculated upon. Futures, mutual funds, index funds, will all be methods of investing into cryptocurrencies by institutions and average retail investors. The process needs to be simplified before it reaches the masses. Is Bakkt the next big thing in crypto? We’ve briefly discussed Bakkt on previous episodes, and go deeper into it this week. With December 12th fast approaching, we will find out the affect on the market it will have. Will it bring institutions in? Will it bring more manipulation? Will it decrease volume and drive the price down, while institutions sit on the sidelines? We won’t know until the time comes, but we give our best opinions on the subject. If you have no idea what Bakkt is, we give a full explanation of how it works. Is this investing advice? Hell no! Look, we are just a few guys on the internet, talking about a subject we love. We have no idea what we are talking about, don’t confuse our opinions for investing advice. You can learn lessons about life, love, and friendship, but NOT finances. Thanks, Decent!
