A portfolio strategist for American financial services firm Morningstar says that cardano could become a mainstream cryptocurrency alongside bitcoin and ether, forming a “big three” of mainstream cryptocurrencies.
Amy Arnott, a cryptocurrency-focused portfolio strategist at Morningstar, shared her views on crypto regulation, ether, and cardano in an interview with the Insider last week.
Noting that since many cryptocurrencies are not cash-generating, Arnott said it is difficult to determine a suitable price for them. However, she explained that ether has an in-built price to an extent because it is used to power decentralized finance (defi) transactions and support non-fungible tokens (NFTs). The strategist elaborated:
The fact that ether is used as a utility should provide some sort of price floor, but I’m not sure what that should be. A lot of people talk about a network effect where these currencies become more valuable as they are used more and there are more interdependencies and connections.
Arnott also believes that cardano (ADA) is a promising cryptocurrency that could join bitcoin and ether to form a “big three” of mainstream cryptocurrencies. She elaborated:
Cardano is similar to ethereum in that it’s a protocol that has a lot of potential technical applications. There’s a lot of enthusiasm about cardano, and also various stablecoins.
The Morningstar strategist continued to share her view on the institutional adoption of cryptocurrencies. “The interesting thing that’s happened over the past year or so is that institutional investors have been far more willing to adopt cryptocurrencies and look at them as an investment asset. As that trend continues we’ll see other cryptocurrencies become more mainstream,” she opined.
She noted that she would really like to see a diversified cryptocurrency index fund in the form of an exchange-traded fund (ETF). However, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) still has not approved any crypto ETF, making it “very difficult for mainstream investors to gain exposure to cryptocurrencies.” Arnott opined:
Regulatory risk is a big issue – that’s been the driving factor behind a lot of the volatility over the past few months. If governments around the world clamp down on crypto in general, or bitcoin and ether specifically, that would be a large negative.
