A new asset class: How institutional investors legitimize Bitcoin

Bitcoin is maturing into a legitimate financial product that is finding its way into more and more traditional portfolios. Now hedge fund legend Ray Dalio is also expressing interest in BTC.

They are the really big ones

Paul Tudor Jones, Stanley Druckermiller and now even Ray Dalio is on the way. While the former have been stepping into the breach for BTC for some time, the latter is still struggling. Ray Dalio, an investor and hedge fund manager, is an advocate of a gold position in the portfolio and already subscribes to the narrative of inflation and rising debt, which Bitcoiners also feel connected to. Actually, it is believed, Dalio should have gone under the Bitcoiners long ago. So far, however, the billionaire is still struggling.

Bitcoin Freedom is simply too volatile for a currency. Who would want to store their wealth in money that can lose up to ten percent of its value a day, and the state would not tolerate a parallel currency under any circumstances. Should BTC actually become a threat to the state monopoly of money, it would simply ban Bitcoin.

In a tweet on November 17, the company sounded different and for the first time signaled openness to Bitcoin.

It is logical that Bitcoin Twitter insisted on making the desired corrections. Bitcoin is of course volatile – in contrast to gold, the crypto currency is still at the beginning of its monetization and is comparatively illiquid. Volatility, however, works both ways. Bitcoin was the dominant asset class that year. Bitcoin has been up 152 percent since the beginning of the year. A missed trade that Dalio should regret too.

Hedge fund manager Druckermiller is pro bitcoin

This is the notch that investor Stanley Druckermiller suggests. From 1981 to 2010, the economist was the manager of Duquesne Capital , one of the most successful hedge funds ever. Druckermiller achieved the sheer superhuman achievement of generating an average of 30 percent ROI per year for his investors. In 2010 he closed the fund.

The philanthropist admitted to CNBC that he was a Bitcoin fan and had even invested in the crypto currency.
