    ~4,000 German Institutions Can Now Allocate 20% Balance Sheet To Crypto

    A new law in Germany allows almost 4,000 institutional funds accounting for about €2 trillion in assets under management (AUM) to invest 20% of their portfolios in Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies.

    The Fund Location Act (Fondsstandortgesetz) law went into effect recently after the German federal parliament, the Bundestag, cleared it for legislation on April 22. The law could potentially lead to an influx of institutional crypto investors into Germany. 

    The country enjoys one of the strongest economies in the eurozone. The law targets the country’s new and existing special funds or Spezialfonds.

    An excerpt from the law reads:

    “All crypto values can be acquired by open-ended special funds with fixed investment conditions, up to 20% of the fund’s NAV. From an investment tax perspective, crypto assets will also be included in the investment catalogue of special investment funds with a corresponding 20% limit. Furthermore, open-ended special funds with fixed investment conditions may also invest – without any quantitative limit – in infrastructure project companies."

    A report by BVI Investments estimated that $2.23 trillion was invested in open special funds. The amount excludes special real estate funds as of December 2020. In this case, an allocation of 20% in cryptocurrencies for all the special funds would equate to over €376 billion. 

    Bitcoin Price Is Expected To Reach These Levels

    Having reclaimed the 20-day SMA, the Bitcoin price needs to take down the 50-day SMA. If they manage to do so, BTC should reach the $38,000 resistance.
