Size does matter: Is institutional money really into crypto or is it just too small?

In the 2021 bull market we saw a lot of news touting the arrival of the “Institutional Investor” and there was much celebration as the market touched $3T market cap a year ago. Since then we have had several significant market shocks, the market is beck to $1T market cap and the institutional investors (mainly family offices and hedge funds) are not making as much of a splash as we hoped. 

Where are the largest Asset Managers? Where are the pension funds? Where are corporate treasuries? And is it all just too small to be interesting?
