Cryptocurrency has slowly been making its way into mainstream finance with top banks already offering crypto-related services to their clients. In fact, a strategist of a Wall Street financial behemoth is now recommending Bitcoin (BTC) as an alternative investment option.

For years, mainstream finance viewed cryptocurrency such as Bitcoin with skepticism. But things have indeed changed these days as even fMorgan Stanley Investment Management’s chief global strategist and head of emerging markets Ruchir Sharma is now pushing Bitcoin as an investment alternative to stocks as central banks’ start to print more money into the financial system.

In an interview with CNN on Tuesday, September 8, Ruchir Sharma discussed his views on gold, crypto, and stocks. One of his concerns is that interest rates could rise “more quickly than we think, possibly even as early as next year” which could hurt tech stocks and other assets, according to Bitcoin.com.

While stock prices remain high at the moment despite the weak economy, Sharma expects the reverse to happen next year. Stocks will struggle “just because of the incredible support they have got from liquidity and interest rates and that support goes away next year.”

The Morgan Stanley strategist also shared his views on gold and crypto saying that it’s a generational thing. Sharma said that some older investors prefer gold while “some of the younger ones are, the millennials are buying more of the bitcoin and cryptocurrencies.”

The fear of fiat becoming devalued is what’s driving some investors to scout for alternative investment vehicles such as cryptocurrency or gold. “Generally I think what that’s telling you is that there is this lingering feeling out there that given what central banks are doing in terms of printing so much money there is a search for alternative assets, I think that these assets could keep doing well,” Sharma added.

For more adventurous investors, Sharma is even recommending Bitcoin and other tokens. “To have about 5% or so of your portfolio in gold is not a bad idea, and if you’re a bit more adventurous, and I guess it’s more to do with demographics, then obviously search for bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies,” the strategist said.

Well technically stolen bitcoins end up in the wallet of the Scammer or person who stole them. But that doesn’t have to be the end of your bitcoins. In recent times, there has been good reviews on C|EH recovery experts like ASSETRESCUE01 @GMAILCOM who are able to recover stolen cryptocurrencies, and I personally have been a victim to a scam on Bitfinance, and thought i had lost all my bitcoins and my account was also suspended, thanks to ASSETRESCUE01 Recovery Services, I was able to recover all of the stolen bitcoins. You can send your request over GMAIL or WhatsApp on +1 206 745-0108. They provide excellent services

I was so devastated last year after I was scammed by a trusted Bitcoin investor of $4000, a co worker told me about Mr Dennis, I was skeptical at first because I had tried different means to get my money back but none worked. I reached out to CREDITSOLUTION63 and they were able to get back my $4,000 that i invested with the fradulent company without stress. I recommend CREDITSOLUTION63 100%
