Institutional investors, such as hedge funds and central banks, also tend to diversify into these assets for risk management.
The impact goes beyond asset allocation, affecting market sentiment and volatility as investors react to developments in the region.
This underscores the interconnectedness of geopolitics and financial markets, prompting investors to adjust their strategies accordingly.

The United States Government Accountability Office:
Other virtual currencies that have been created are not based on the bitcoin protocol.

For example, if a direct conversion between Mexican pesos and Thai baht is not available, the pesos can be exchanged for XRP, and then the XRP for baht.
