Institutional investors to take interest in XRP
According to a famous XRP enthusiast @RobertArtRobArt, more institutional investors are likely to take interest in the third-largest cryptocurrency. If it happens, then XRP will reach trillions in market capitalization with the help of institutional investors.
According to him:
Just recently when market cap was at $120 billion, that was nearly 60%. 1% of Black Rock’s assets. 1 %. Institutional Investors will be pumping in billions. It’ll only be 1-20% of their capital and will result in XRP reaching trillions in market cap. Black Rock alone has $7.4 trillion under management. 1% of that is $74 billion. That’s 30% of entire crypto market cap today. #XRP

I would also prefer that people not pay me in $XRP.
