Bosonic emerges as the tailored solution that empowers institutions to embrace the crypto market securely.
As the crypto market soared during the peak of the 2021 bull run, with Bitcoin edging towards its record-breaking $69,000 mark, an atmosphere of abundant liquidity and unrestrained enthusiasm prevailed. In the midst of all the excitement, a key factor driving the bullish narrative was the widely held belief that institutions were flocking to embrace crypto. This anticipation centered around institutional demand for Bitcoin and other digital assets.
The initial signs were there - MicroStrategy boldly led the charge, consistently accumulating BTC as a strategic treasury asset. Tesla, while not matching MicroStrategy's intensity, did venture into the space by holding BTC and briefly entertaining it as a payment option. However, the landscape shifted in 2022 with the collapse of FTX and other crypto entities, triggering a widespread market downturn. The once-promising prospect of institutional involvement began to waver, casting doubts on the industry's resilience.
As 2023 draws to a close, the crypto terrain has undergone a profound transformation: Sam Bankman-Fried, FTX's founder, now faces conviction on all counts related to the exchange's alleged criminal mismanagement. In contrast, Bitcoin's price has surged over 100% from its 2022 lows, injecting a renewed wave of optimism. With the upcoming halving on the horizon, a resounding claim echoes through the crypto landscape: institutions are making a comeback, and this time, there's a palpable conviction behind the sentiment.
However, a big obstacle persists for institutional participation in Crypto and Digital Assets—the absence of a Tier-1 bank prime broker, central clearing-house, or institutional consortium like DTCC or CLS Bank. This void leaves a crucial need for a comprehensive solution to eliminate the substantial risks associated with institutional involvement in the crypto space.
