Mike McGlone, a commodity strategist at Bloomberg Intelligence, said that Bitcoin is slowly eating away gold’s market share. He added that BTC could be primed for a rally this year after the crypto market’s massive correction.

McGlone also said that the increasing popularity of Bitcoin has affected the gold market. He explained that some investors have traded a portion of their allocation for gold in exchange for BTC to diversify their portfolios. “You can see the amount of ETFs and demand for Bitcoin every day has increased and I see outflows in gold,” he said in an interview with Stansberry Investor host Daniela Cambone on Sept. 21,

The reason for this is that it’s just prudent to diversify one’s portfolio. Instead of having just gold as an inflationary hedge, some investors are also allocating a small portion into Bitcoin.

“Let’s look at it this way. From a prudent money management investment standpoint of view, any type of money, if you have any type of money in gold and you’re not allocating into Bitcoin - just a small portion, you’re at a greater risk of looking like you’re being left out or falling behind,” he explained.

He explained that investors who insist gold is a better inflationary edge and refuse to allocate a small portion of their portfolios in cryptos are being left behind. “I fear that people who keep pointing out how gold has been the hedge forever - I agree with you – and I leave you with this. Before the automobile, the horse was the best form of transportation,” he said. “Every day that Bitcoin doesn’t fail, it’s moving into gold’s space. And this year is a good example of that.”

McGlone said that a correction in the stock market might not necessarily drag the crypto market down with it. “What’s happening lately is we’re seeing this wobble in the stock market but Bitcoin continues to show divergence,” he said. “I expect that to continue.”

The strategist pointed out that Bitcoin could rally to $100,000 this year after that massive correction which saw the crypto briefly trading below $30,000. “I think we’ve already had a significant correction this year,” he explained. “One of the best ways to create the foundation of the market is to flush out the speculative excesses. Crypto has a great foundation. It’s corrected… and now it’s starting to recover.”

I had a terrible credit score and I needed to get approved for a car loan. I had a car before but the payment became way too much so I ended up getting rid of it within a year and a half. However, I saw an ad on a post about repairing credit score by a very popular credit repair specialist called 760PLUS CREDIT SCORE i saved his contact 760pluscreditscore at gmail dot com , 304 774 5902 and also saw some good reviews on CK and Reddit so I texted him, asking him the cost and the process explanation. He responded favorably and I made an upfront payment so we eventually got started with the project ASAP. After some couple of days, he notified me that the job was completed and ready to use for the loan approval. I checked my credit score via credit karma and my score went up to 795 with positive trade line of credit posted on my credit profile. I completed the service charge and thanked him for saving my ass.
