Fundstrat Survey Shows The Majority Of Institutional Investors Believe Bitcoin (BTC) Has Bottomed

Market research firm Fundstrat released a survey earlier today revealing a number of interesting opinions from across the crypto space. The survey compared the views of institutional investors with the views of “crypto Twitter” users.

The survey reveals interesting results from across the crypto community, including how the views of institutions differ significantly from the views of ordinary investors. The results of the study were shared online.

Fundstrat completed the survey over the past week, releasing two polls to institutions and crypto Twitter users. One survey was conducted during a dinner with 25 institutions. Each institution was asked 10 questions. The other survey was released to “crypto Twitter”, garnering 9,500 responses.

Some of the key takeaways from the report include:

  • The majority of institutions believe that the price of BTC has already bottomed
  • Institutions are more bullish about crypto markets than crypto Twitter
  • 72% of institutions believe crypto prices would rise – not fall – in a recession
  • Institutions believe that the best-performing cryptoasset in 2019 will be BTC, while crypto Twitter believes that XRP will be the best performing asset in 2019

Fundstrat boils down its report into major conclusions:

Conclusion #1: Institutions Are Significantly More Bullish Than Crypto Twitter On BTC

Institutions feel more strongly about BTC than crypto Twitter. Institutions believe BTC will be the best-performing cryptocurrency in 2019, while crypto Twitter users are more likely to favor XRP. In fact, crypto Twitter believes BTC has further to sink and will bottom out in 2019. Institutions, meanwhile, believe BTC has already reached its bottom and will begin climbing significantly in 2019. “We believe BTC will be the primary interest for institutional investors,” concluded Fundstrat.

Conclusion #2: XRP Is The Least Liked And Most Polarizing

Fundstrat’s report also identifies XRP as “a contrarian buy”, stating that it’s a polarizing cryptocurrency for crypto Twitter users and institutions alike. Some people believe in the future of XRP, while others feel strongly against it. Users and institutions alike cited common concerns with XRP, including the centralization of XRP, its tenuous ties to Ripple, and other issues. One third of institutions also described XRP as the “least understood” digital currency.

46% of crypto Twitter users chose XRP as their favorite digital currency while 31% said it made “least sense” out of other cryptocurrencies. No other cryptocurrency even came close. 28% of institutions, meanwhile, also said that XRP made the least sense. Zero institutions (!) picked XRP as their favorite token.

Ultimately, this survey shows how different opinions can be across the crypto community, with institutions believing one thing and crypto Twitter users believing another.
