Many analysts are warning of the arrival of possible inflation — driven by the uncontrolled impression of Fiat by the Fed as an economic measure to boost the economy hit by the COVID-19 pandemic— urging investors to buy Gold and other commodities, while others suggest investing in Bitcoin.
Today, Gold reached a price point not seen since 2012, causing a commotion on wall street, whereas silver jumped over 4%, grabbing many of last weekend’s headlines.
Bitcoin, commonly known as “digital gold”, can take advantage of these price increases, as it could experience a surge in adoption by many investors looking to leave fiat behind and put their money in a new digital storage of value.
According to billionaire investor Paul Singer, gold could be changed “literally multiples of its current price” as a result of inflation, a move that could lead BTC to pursue new ATHs following the correlation that both have had since the Black Thursday.
Like Singer, the author of the best-selling “Rich Dad” series Robert Kiyosaki, said he “Bought more gold, silver, [and] Bitcoin” and made predictions about its prices, indicating that BTC could reach $75,000 in only 3 years — which doesn’t seem to be that difficult if it follows the historical behavior after a halving.
Cryptocurrencies could take advantage of this future inflation, way more than any other type of currency, if people let go of the perception of “Safe Haven” and start to be used as a fiat substitute.
So far, Bitcoin continues to outperform Gold’s gains by far, but it has yet to achieve the momentum that will allow it to go beyond its ATH, surpassing many analysts’ price predictions that some investors consider unattainable.
Bitcoin is currently being traded at $9,728, up by 0.54% in price over the last 24 hours in a week that has seen hiking prices, as it seeks to overcome the $10,000 resistance it has struggled with, since last month.
We cannot guarantee that BTC will ever outperform gold in adoption – which would have an unimaginable effect in the whole crypto ecosystem — but as investor Paul Tudor said, BTC reminds him of gold saving the economy of the 1970s.
