Crypto

The Financial Services industry has demonstrated this time after time, without regard to the underlying quality of the investment product:

"...with a good sales & marketing team just about anything can and will be sold; especially a sexy new asset class."

"It’s anyone’s guess when and at what level this bubble in bitcoin will burst."

Bitcoin "investing" or speculation generally requires transferring money into risky & unfamiliar places or overpriced investment products. Meanwhile, bitcoin "marketing" or publicizing has generally been limited to word-of-mouth & the media.

If new bitcoin-related investment products are released, crypto asset-investing will become available to traditional investors via the traditional distribution (and commission-paying) channels. This alone would increase demand, if only due to the addition of professional marketing of the crypto "asset class".
