While discussing the prospects of the crypto space for the approaching year of 2022, veteran CNBC anchor Joe Kernen asked what areas in the crypto space it is worth watching closely. As an example, he named Bitcoin ETFs, institutional adoption of Bitcoin, regulatory adjustments and more.

Investing in risky and high-return crypto

When talking about "institutional growth," the expert of Genesis mentioned both direct token investment and investment in companies that work in the cryptocurrency space that build its infrastructure. She mentioned that 2021 has seen 40 companies turn into unicorns, presumably in the crypto space.

Aside from that, according to Acheson, financial institutions seem to be eager to diversify their crypto portfolio and go for other crypto tokens, aside from Bitcoin, even those considered risky but higher-return ones.

This is happening despite the fact that a year ago, Bitcoin was the only crypto that institutions were interested in. This year, they are investing in the altcoin trusts of Grayscale and buy such promising altcoins as Solana (SOL) and Terra (LUNA).

Noelle Acheson focused on the migration of Bitcoin miners from China to other countries this year. A lot of them went to the USA, she stressed. This would give mining companies more advantages, according to Acheson, including access to renewable energy sources and to more financing from banks, institutional investors and even from pulling an IPO.
