Ethereum a potential destination for institutional investors

“At the same time, institutions are also showing interest in Ethereum’s public blockchain. Institutions are looking for ways to leverage the network in the wake of Bitcoin stagnating faced with regulatory and environmental concerns. The factors have played a role in institutional activity around Bitcoin slowing down, but some analysts believe the scenario offers other assets like Ethereum an opportunity to fill the void.”
