With concerns about the rising inflation, a growing number of institutional investors and fund managers are now showing a preference for Bitcoin (BTC) over gold. Many now view the crypto as better than the precious metal as inflation hedge and store of value.

For instance, Skybridge Capital founder Anthony Scaramucci said that Bitcoin’s technical properties make it better than gold. “You can move it move it costlessly, you can store it virtually costlessly and it has this ledger that is completely missile-locked – you can’t hack it,” he explained.

The fund manager also cited Bitcoin’s limited supply and its potential to grow exponentially as compared to gold’s linear growth trajectory. “With 21 million coins and its scarcity, the shortage of supply, the technical properties, I think it’s going to be ten times better than gold over a long period of time,” Scaramucci added. “It will eventually eclipse gold.”

Galaxy Digital Holdings CEO Mike Novogratz also said that Bitcoin is a better store of value than gold. “I still think gold was probably an okay asset to own in this environment,” he said during the company’s third-quarter earnings call, according to Bitcoin.com. “It’s just gotten crushed by bitcoin.”.

“Bitcoin is just a better version of a store value and it’s being accepted at an accelerating pace …,” Novogratz added. “There are now over two hundred million people around the world that participate in the bitcoin ecosystem, and it continues to grow.”

Fund manager Paul Tudor Jones said he prefers Bitcoin over gold as inflation hedge. “Clearly, there’s a place for crypto. Clearly, it’s winning the race against gold at the moment …,” he said in October. “It would be my preferred one over gold at the moment.”

Meanwhile, Starwood Capital Group co-founder Barry Sternlicht revealed he owns Bitcoin and Ethereum (ETH) and views BTC as a better store of value and inflationary hedge. “Gold is kind of worthless too, and so is silver, I mean they have some industrial uses but they are minor,” Sternlicht said in October. “The reason I own Bitcoin is because the U.S. government and every government in the western hemisphere is printing money now to the end of time.”

The past 3 months has been hell for me. I lost $545,000 to a OMCMARKETS! These fraudulent company cleaned me off my hard earned money. They kept asking for more deposit and when I didn’t give in they stopped responding to my mails. I was desperate for a refund as I couldn’t pay my mortgage. I got the best Christmas gift in advance for myself and my kids being a single father. COINWALLETRECOUP DOT COM was able to recoup my invested capital in less than 12 working days. God does answer prayers. I am forever indebted to Mr Gary who oversaw the penetration experts who carried out a systematic hack into OMCMarkets database. I have also gone ahead to file complaints directly to the FCA and SEC. How can one not have a moral compassion, lack empathy and have a zero conscience to?!. Very pathetic and despicable. I have become a lot more circumspect because of my experience with OMCmarkets. Contact COINWALLETRECOUP DOT COM Thank me later.

I have been working for a year plus to get my credit to 700plus, I felt pretty bad when I checked there wasn’t any improvement. One delighted evening after I closed from work, I sketch through the internet trying to figure out how to bring up my score, I came across lot of articles/testimonies of different kind and one caught my attention speaking and recommending a particular hacking company named TROVIAN CREDIT REPAIR. I quickly write out the details [email protected] or text; +1 (424) 307 4562 and contacted them; thereafter they replied and told me they are fully back in service. To cut the long story short they started with the repair and got my score to exactly 799 and remove all the negative items replacing them with awesome trade lines. Get in touch with them via the above contacts and get your credit perfectly fixed.
