Bitcoin institutional investment may very well be upon the eager onlookers who have watched price tickers for the past months, clinging desperately for signs of hope that upward price momentum may be on the way. This week, onlookers have a real reason to place their bets: large investment players have been confirmed to be moving into the space. In an interview with a representative from OKCoin, the company disclosed that a hedge fund $3 billion has begun trading on their platform and this may be just the tip of the iceberg.

The more use and investment in bitcoin the better.

We're already also using several investments pages to try earn some BTC; remember always there are BTCJam, Coinsortium, Cryptostocks and more pages. Of course, lots of people decide not to invest there because most of them don't offer a guarantee about the invest and other juridical situation which put lots of people out of it.

But I'm grateful that more people are trying to make it.  Grin

Trouble is the market is very thin; there are not enough coins for large investors. Either BTC will go to the moon, or they will have to diversify into other coins. What do you think?

Institutional investors may already be grinding it out - buying slowly from the exchanges so that price doesn't shoot up, cutting deals with the miners, etc.

Doesn't make sense at all to diversify into alt coins.  all the alt coins on the planet combined are but a fraction of btc.

Amen brother.

There is a squeeze put on the market in these bull runs, we've seen it in action before. As the price rises people hold on tightly to their bitcoin, and this is one main factor we've seen with quick increases of price. In these bull runs bitcoin becomes more scarce as price climbs, and I think we will see another phase of this very soon. I do not think they will diversify, nor should they.

Institutional investors may already be grinding it out - buying slowly from the exchanges so that price doesn't shoot up, cutting deals with the miners, etc.

Given that the market cap of bitcoin is a tiny $6.6 billion compared to, say Mastercard at $88 billion, I think the big players would move swiftly into the space rather than tiptoeing around and trying to pinch pennies by working with miners. Wall Streeters don't want to work with miners, they have the infrastructure now for larger investments through mainstream exchanges and that is what they will go through.

The facts have proved that 3 billion dollars funds is just a gimmick and rumors

Would you care to provide such "facts"?

She's probably intending to say that it wasnt $3 Billion of investments going into Bitcoin but a company that has a general market cap of 3 billion which planned to start dabbling in Bitcoin.

gimmick / rumors ... she was probably shooting for 'misconceptions'
