Should cryptocurrencies be considered an institutional asset class?

Should cryptocurrencies be considered an institutional asset class? That’s the question Goldman Sachs Research senior strategist Allison Nathan explores in the latest edition of Top of Mind. On the "yes" side of the ledger is the growing interest from credible investors and the new crypto products and services being offered by legacy financial institutions—like Goldman Sachs. But on the "no" side are the many regulatory, technological and security obstacles that remain. Nathan consults a wide range of experts—including Galaxy’s Michael Novogratz, NYU’s Nouriel Roubini, Grayscale’s Michael Sonnenshein and GS’s own Mathew McDermott—and if one thing’s clear, it’s that the debate won’t be over anytime soon.
