Global investment firm Skybridge Capital's Chief Investment officer is of the view that bitcoin has more upside potential in comparison to gold. Though both the asset classes i.e. gold and bitcoin are set for a rally, his hedge fund prefers bitcoin over gold.
As per a Bloomberg report released on Sunday, Troy Gayeski- co-chief investment officer (CIO) and senior portfolio manager at Skybridge Capital, a hedge fund with AUM of $7.5 billion said "gold is good but bitcoin is better".
Gayeski see both gold and bitcoin to spurt despite Federal Reserve considering to shift US monetary policy and gradually taper its asset purchase programme. "We're going to stick to bitcoin and crypto because we just think there's more upside", he added. Further while he acknowledged that bitcoin has more volatility in comparison to gold, he at the same time opined "you're going to capture a little bit more juice than you will in gold from that same phenomenon."
The bitcoin price scaled to an all time high of sub $65k in April before it plunged and currently quotes at $32,972 as per Coindesk.com. At the same time, the precious yellow metal gold which was close to fall into a bear territory in March, recovered in price and erased its year to date losses.
"All fiat-currency alternatives - which have all gone through fairly recent substantial corrections - are in a much better place now to handle that eventual taper and gradual slowing of money-supply growth, than they were as they were making higher-highs after higher-highs", Gayeski added.
