Institutional acceptance of cryptocurrencies increased this year even as prices tumbled as more investors begin to view digital assets as worthwhile holdings, according to a Fidelity Investments survey. 

Nearly 60% of institutional investors surveyed said they were invested in digital assets in the first half of the year, a six-point increase from last year. The Institutional Investor Digital Assets Study found that four-in-five investors believe that investment portfolios should include digital assets.
