Traditional Bitcoin users and invested have dreamed of the day when Bitcoin breaks mainstream and billions of dollars begin to pour into the Blockchain and all the cryptocurrencies, well that day has come. Coinbase and Blockchian.com has opened the door for institutional investors to flood the cryptocurrency market with their billions of dollars, by providing secure institutional investment platforms.
Coinbase launched their Coinbase Custody on July 2, 2018. Coinbase Custody is defined by Coinbase as a digital asset custody for institutions. The Coinbase Custody platform has the following features:

‘Coinbase Custody services a range of customers including institutions, hedge funds, ICOs and cryptocurrency exchanges.’
Blockchain.com has also launched their platform to give institutional investors a chance to buy a stake in the cryptocurrency revolution. The new Blockchain Principal Strategies (BPS) platform will provide secure and “unparalleled” access to markets, services, and research for institutions, family businesses, and retail investors.
