Mike Novogratz: Bitcoin is a better store of value
Fund managers and institutional investors see cryptocurrency as a better store of value and preferred hedge against inflation, and are increasingly choosing to invest in Bitcoin over gold. Galaxy Digital Holdings CEO Mike Novogratz mentioned that Bitcoin is a better store of value than gold when his company released its third quarter financial statements last week.
I still think gold is a good asset to have in this environment. It just got crushed by Bitcoin. Bitcoin is just a better version of a store value and is being accepted at an increasing rate. There are currently over two hundred million people worldwide joining the Bitcoin ecosystem and it continues to grow.
Anthony Scaramucci thinks BTC will be ten times better than gold
Anthony Scaramucci, founder of Skybridge Capital, also expects Bitcoin to outperform gold. He said last week that Bitcoin “will eventually eclipse gold.” Anthony Scaramucci says it is still very, very early for Bitcoin and predicts that the price of the cryptocurrency will easily reach $500,000.
I think it will probably be ten times better than gold in a long time. I wouldn’t be surprised if Bitcoin rises at an exponential rate and gold rises at a linear rate.
Bitcoin gains, gold loses, according to Michael Saylor
Paul Tudor Jones is another famous fund manager who has recently admitted that he prefers BTC to gold. Last month, he said that he preferred Bitcoin as a measure against inflation in the current economic environment and made the following statement:

In September, pro-Bitcoin Nasdaq-listed company Microstrategy said it avoided a “billion-dollar mistake” by choosing Bitcoin over gold last year. The company currently holds approximately 114,042 BTC. CEO Michael Saylor said last week that he expects Bitcoin to become a $100 trillion asset class. Michael Saylor expresses his views as follows:
Bitcoin is gaining, gold is losing and will continue. It is quite clear that digital gold (Bitcoin) will replace gold in this decade.
The head of energy research at Goldman Sachs said that he saw funds moving from gold to Bitcoin recently and made the following inference:
Just as we claim that silver is the poor man’s gold, so gold is perhaps becoming the poor man’s crypto.
