Coinbase Reveals Crypto Boom: $14 Billion Institutional Capital Enters Bitcoin

The crypto market exploded these days, and Bitcoin’s price seemed to be racing towards an ATH.

At the moment of writing this article, BTC is trading in the red, and the king coin is priced at $18,126.23.

It’s been reported that Coinbase executive Brett Tejpaul said that the institutional interest in digital assets is growing – it grew more than threefold since he joined the crypto exchange back in April.

Institutional interest in crypto is rising

During a recent interview, he said that institutional interest in crypto is growing on a daily basis.

“We’ve had an explosion of activity… I joined in April of this year. At that time, our institutional assets under custody were $6 billion. Today, we stand at over $20 billion. So more than a three-time increase…” he said.

He continued and explained that “We’re now measuring the fresh capital coming into crypto principally being allocated to Bitcoin in the billions and so week after week after week we’ve had an explosion of incoming capital.”

Tejpaul explained how the exchange has been preparing on dealing with governmental regulation.

“Earlier in the summer, we acquired an execution platform called Tagomi, and it radically transformed our ability to cater to institutional clients that want to use smart order routing and algorithmic execution. So the stat there is that our trading volumes are 20 times what they were at the beginning of the year…” he said.
