I work as an advisor for fundraising and talk to institutional investors every day. Nowadays the bear market and mostly negative PR in main stream media doesn’t help to bring new investors or new liquidity to the crypto market, but I think the times will change!
I noticed the beginning of change in some conversations which I had with institutional investors within the last weeks. Because of the upcoming regulation in a lot of countries, new big players with deep pockets are able to enter crypto space. Cryptoinvestments will become a new ( regulated ) asset class in some countries, consequently new liquidity will be pushed into the market. The end of the bear market is near, and the bullrun will be longer, just like we have seen it in the end of 2017.
These days a lot of great projects are not successful. They fail not because of their business model, their competitors or their management, they fail only due to a negative prenotion and psychological walls in the minds of potential investors.
