Crypto Report
How can one track big (institutional) money flowing into the cryptospace?
In the cryptospace, more institutional money will flow into the space as regulations are passed into law. This will help the space mature.

At present, institutional money is only a tiny portion with retail money making up the majority. That said, there are several hundred cryptofunds in existence though they are small funds simply because the space is still too small for large funds. Multi-billion dollar funds would move the market getting into and out of trades. Of course some funds may elect to just buy and hold.

During the days of the dot-com boom, retail money was the primary driver in 1996. By 1999, the majority of funds became institutional since by 1998, the greatest gains were in internet stocks. Companies with deficient business models often rose hundreds of percentage points simply because analysts on Wall Street believed these were legitimate companies as can be seen by the countless numbers of analyst reports issued by major investment banks on these companies in the late 1990s. As in so many things, perception ruled the day. The same has happened and could continue to happen for cryptos.

That said, much of my [Dr K] analysis is not just black and white in terms of fundamentals and technicals, ie, the strength of a business model (team experience, fundamentals, disruptive potential, dev activity, commits, etc) but also in how the market perceives a company. The chart pattern helps me separate the fastest horses from the rest of the pack. I then force feed capital into these names while reducing or selling off the slower ones.
