Hey all,

Bakkt is coming soon. I have been reading a little bit about it, but I mostly trade Crypto and don't know much about the underlying technology and the large corporations impacting it. What is Bakkt and what is the most likely effect on the prices of cryptocurrencies?

Hey all,

Bakkt is coming soon. I have been reading a little bit about it, but I mostly trade Crypto and don't know much about the underlying technology and the large corporations impacting it. What is Bakkt and what is the most likely effect on the prices of cryptocurrencies?

First you need to know what Bakkt is. To do so, visit the link below;
https://www.bakkt.com/index
Bringing transparency and trust to digital assets
Bakkt is enabling institutional, merchant and consumer access to digital assets in a secure, trusted ecosystem.

In my opinion, the greatest benefit of the BAKKT will be that it will announce more cryptocurrencies on the US and make progress towards its legalization.

I had a look at all the links, thanks for sharing!
"Bakkt is enabling institutional, merchant and consumer access to digital assets in a secure, trusted ecosystem." Is not incredibly friendly to read for a non-native speaker.

So far this would be my explanation in laymans terms:
Bakkt is a company created by New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) that allows you to buy and sell crypto (along with other derivatives like futures). They work together with big companies like Microsoft, Starbucks and BCG. They specifically focus on the part that should make it very easy for regular people (even those that don't know much about crypto right now), hence why they partnered with a company like Starbucks. The impact on crypto in the long run could be quite big, since if they are successful they will introduce cryptocurrency to a larger audience.

How's that sound?

Bakkt is a entry point for big institutional investors to enter the Bitcoin trading market. So these traders do not want to bother with securing millions of dollars worth of coins, they just want to buy and sell coins on a secure platform. Bakkt hold the coins for them in a secure warehouse and they just buy and sell these coins from there.  Wink 

The impact for other Bitcoin users are more demand for coins and a subsequent price increase for coins on the open market. At first it might not have a huge impact, but if there are interest from institutional investors, Bakkt will have to buy more and more coins to provide for that demand.  Wink

It seems that Bakkt is the talk of the Crypto Town now, Looks like bull season will start with this Bakkt launch then the Bitcoin halving approaching.
Is it okay to say that it is possible to see a new ATH again for bitcoin?

I did see the Starbucks name mentioned, and I'm wondering what their involvement with Bakkt is.  They don't actually accept bitcoin as payment for their products, do they?  I've not been in a Starbucks in quite a while, but I also haven't read anything about that on the forum aside from some speculation that they might eventually take bitcoin.

Did a little reading about Bakkt, and my understanding of it is basically everything that was said in this thread.  I tend to think that large corporations and investment firms don't really want to own bitcoin or any other crypto outright--not if they have many millions or even billions of dollars to invest. 

If any of them are even interested in getting exposure to crypto, they're going to do it through options and futures.  And aside from banks and mutual funds and other organizations whose business it is to invest money, I'm not sure who else would be interested in Bakkt.  I don't think it's going to be a hit with small retail investors, but who knows.  I sure as hell don't, but my intuition is telling me this is going to be a good thing for bitcoin.

It is possible but not certain. We don't know how many investors will Bakkt actually have. It is the talk of the town but it's the news mainly among current bitcoin holders and small fish thinking of buying. We don't know if institutions are gearing up for investment.

If I were a CEO of a big company looking to invest I'd wait and see how it all develops before entering BAKKT with a lot of money and putting my whole company at risk.

Bakkt would enable more institutional investors in Bitcoin market and push it towards broader regulation. At least that is the way I see it. As a consequence more adoption is expected and some also think that might increase the price.
But I don't have too big expectations and I will form entirely my opinion at the moment Bakkt comes into force, so next week much more should be more clear.

bakkt is a big deal because its futures markets are basically the first federally regulated avenue for institutional buying/selling of real bitcoins. because they are physically settled, there will be real arbitrage with the spot market, meaning that institutional demand via bakkt could actually drive the spot market upwards. compared to CME cash settled futures, which are basically just a CFD market that has no effect on spot price.

it's also a big deal because they are the first legacy giant to enter the institutional custody market.

i don't think the launch in 2 days will necessarily affect prices, but demand from institutions trading on bakkt eventually will.

alot of people wonder about starbucks involvement and think of them as just a retailer staffed with barrista's who are just trained to make throthy coffee..
what most people dont know or think about is that starbucks are actually huge players in the commodities market.
think about it. they are the largest international trader of coffee bean commodities.
there corporate offices specialise in knowing how the stock exchange works, what influences it and how to trade within it both as a supplier and buyer

to starbucks, bitcoin is a safer asset to manage, they dont have to worry about costly distribution(trucks,boats) dont have to worry about warehousing, dont have to worry about seasonal changes(sun/rain) affecting their holdings, dont need to pay farmers. its just trading and concentrating on trading and not that other stuff

also starbucks was and is a partly poker player and not the 'house' in regards to coffee beans as they are partially on the receiving end of bad seasons and boating accidents, mold, bad yields, etc. but with bakkt they get to be more of the 'house' meaning less risk for them as all they are facilitating is the trading gateway and taking a cut of the trade fee's without the hassles mentioned above. as the old addage says the house always wins


I DO NOT TRADE OR ACT AS ESCROW ON THIS FORUM EVER.
Please do your own research & respect what is written here as both opinion & information gleaned from experience. many people replying with insults but no on-topic content substance, automatically are 'facepalmed' and yawned at

OP,you should ask this question in the r/ExplainlikeI'mfive subreddit or Reddit. Grin
Most people here fail to explain it so simplistic.I'm not the biggest Bakkt believer,but all those threads related to Bakkt are flooding the forum again for no reason(the Bakkt launch tomorrow isn't a big deal). Grin
I hope that Bakkt will the bitcoin price to hit the moon,but I'm skeptic(or realistic) about it.

What is Bakkt
Lots of answers already for it you can read them through their site though.

and what is the most likely effect on the prices of cryptocurrencies?
It could have at least effect on bitcoin not all cryptocurrency since only bitcoin will be accepted on the platform, if I'm correct.

Price may increase a bit and not that high (but higher is better though) because of the impact from institutional investors that will give them the freedom to trade/invest BTC on the platform.

starbucks doesn't accept it directly but you can pay at the counter with the spedn app. you load the app with crypto, pay at the counter with QR code, and gemini converts the transaction value on the back end.

i bet the bakkt partnership will work the same way. like bitpay 2.0 for brick and mortar merchants.

Direct question, is Starbucks accepting Bitcoins for them to keep in their own wallets or not? Because you didn't answer the question.

But I don't have too big expectations and I will form entirely my opinion at the moment Bakkt comes into force, so next week much more should be more clear.

It seems to be a revolutionary change if everything is going as it is expected. The cryptocurrency trading platform Bakkt, promises Bitcoin futures with physical supply of the cryptocurrency. Bakkt futures can bring the market back to life. Let us watch what is going on in reality - the market fluctuations are close to zero now: all are waining for this Bakkt to affect the market.
