Why Investment Advisors in the Bitcoin Market are Needed
Retail investors who are seeking to buy Bitcoin face challenges such as undeveloped crypto market infrastructure and complexity of the blockchain technology. They typically are not able to define a proper investment strategy and the optimal portfolio allocation to the new asset class. Therefore, they need professional assistance in making informed investment decisions.
Registered Investment Advisors (RIAs) are professional investment consultants who advise individuals and institutions about investment decisions and manage their investment portfolios. Investment advisors typically charge a management fee of ~1% of Assets Under Management (AUM). Online robo advisors provide their services online and charge a management fee of ~0.25% of AUM.
Investment Advisors in a Waiting Mode When It Comes to Investing in Crypto
Registered investment advisors (RIAs) are still hesitant to enter the crypto market because of the lack of clear regulations and reliable valuation models. In addition, investment advisors still do not have sufficient knowledge of the crypto market infrastructure and basic blockchain expertise to explain their clients how digital assets such as Bitcoin work and the pros and cons of purchasing them.
The majority of investment advisors in the United States, including online robo advisors, such as Betterment and Wealthfront, still do not provide investment recommendations in the digital assets space. Besides regulatory uncertainty, registered investment advisors currently do not provide investment advice in the digital assets space because the crypto market is highly volatile, inefficient, and exposed to market manipulation.
These issues are common for new asset classes and we believe that crypto market will become more efficient, transparent, and regulated, in the next few years. Finally, registered investment advisors are waiting for regulated and liquid investment products in the digital assets space, such as Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs). These financial instruments are still not available and waiting for the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) approval.
Future of Investment Advisory Services in the Digital Assets Space
We assume that in the next couple of years financial advisors will be forced to understand Bitcoin and other digital assets. This will happen because investors are always looking for uncorrelated asset classes to diversify their investment portfolios. At the same time, new financial instruments linked to Bitcoin and other crypto assets’ performance already move further into the mainstream.
We believe that there will be a significant demand for financial advisors who are well versed in the digital assets space and who can help clients to safely navigate the complexities of investing in this exponentially growing market.
Besides traditional investment advisors (RIAs), online robo advisors will be forced to enter this rapidly growing market as the demand for investments in the digital assets space is growing exponentially. Institutional and individual investors are willing to invest in Bitcoin and other crypto assets because of the portfolio diversification benefits and high potential investment return.
Alternative asset classes have been always an important component of the balanced investment portfolio. Importantly, digital assets such as Bitcoin can serve not only as an alternative investment but also as a digital store of value, which adds additional value to investing in this new asset class.

BTC/USD hourly chart
The Bitcoin price had low volatility ever since it dropped from $12,000 to $10,000. There was buying activity as the price tested the $10,000 support multiple times. The BTC price rose slowly to $10,600 but was met with resistance, and is settling at around $10,300 without a strong sense of direction.
In order to resume the bullish trend, the BTC price needs to build up the momentum to break the $10,600 resistance, as well as staying above $10,200. The support remains at $10,000. A break below this level would indicate a downturn and could test $9,000.
Review of the week：
Jay Hao, OKEx CEO, shared his views on DeFi that the decentralized finance space has grown exponentially over the last few months, to the point where more than $9 billion worth of crypto assets were locked in its protocols before crypto prices started dropping. This exponential growth in the last few months appears to be mainly related to a yield farming trend that started when lending protocol Compound began distributing its COMP governance token to users who interacted with the protocol. Yield farming or liquidity mining allows DeFi users to generate rewards with their cryptocurrency holdings by interacting with protocols that distribute governance tokens. Farming yield can be a profitable venture on its own, but the tokens being farmed often see their price surge as well (YFI and YFII’s success). Meanwhile, there are various risks that aren’t immediately clear (YAM’s unaudited protocols and SUSHI’s scam) Diversification is very often recommended by investors because not “putting all your eggs in one basket” helps ensure you don’t lose everything to scams, unexpected market moves or technical issues, and invest in potential gems while it’s still early.

Market capitalization (often shortened to market cap) is the approximate total value of a cryptocurrency, typically shown in US dollars. The market cap of a cryptocurrency is calculated by multiplying the number of coins or tokens in existence by its current price. Bitcoin’s most unique advantage comes from the fact that it was the very first cryptocurrency to appear on the market. It has managed to create a global community and give birth to an entirely new industry of millions of enthusiasts who create, invest in, trade and use Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies in their everyday lives.
