A VanEck study says institutional investors should invest at least part of their capital in Bitcoin. BTC can increase portfolio returns, but there are also certain risks.

Therefore, the most balanced decision will be the transfer of a small part of the capital to the crypto sphere.

Researchers have found that investing in Bitcoin 3% of their portfolio would be the best option. In this case, the dynamics of increasing profitability is observed.

However, it must be remembered that at the moment, a more rapid expansion of the Bitcoin ecosystem is hindered by the lack of infrastructure. This is the main obstacle to the adoption of Bitcoin by institutional investors.

VanEck experts believe that Bitcoin has tremendous potential, and to some extent, it can be called “digital gold.” The main advantage of the first cryptocurrency is its shortage. In addition, Bitcoin is very convenient to move.

The report says:

Bitcoin is not quite a currency but most certainly is a money, however it may become a currency in the future

A new phase of Bitcoin strengthening is expected after the so-called Halving (reduction of the miners’ award in 2020) in May. The authors of the report came to this conclusion after they recorded a trend to increase the value of the first cryptocurrency after previous halvings in 2012 and 2016.
