Bakkt Makes A Comeback
Hours after one of the most anticipated events commenced, the launch of the Bakkt futures contract, it could only boast of a meager 28 BTCs traded on its exchange.
Many anticipated Bakkt to be the intermediary between large institutions and the crypto market. As the case was and still is, large institutions are skeptical about entering the crypto market because of its highly volatile nature.
These institutions preferred a better-regulated environment, which Bakkt was to provide. But apparently, things haven’t worked out as planned; however, with the latest event, Bakkt seems to be claiming its position as initially expected.
Crypto Twitter Reacts To Recent Achievement
Bakkt’s recent event caused a lot of mix reactions from crypto enthusiasts on Twitter. While a school of thought believes that Bakkt is gradually living up to expectations again, the other school of thought maintains this new achievement still doesn’t show the interest of institutional traders in bitcoin whatsoever.
