On CNBC this morning Rick Rieder, CIO of Fixed Income at BlackRock, the world’s largest asset manager, said Bitcoin could take the place of gold to a large extent because crypto is “so much more functional than passing a bar of gold around.”
“I think Bitcoin is here to stay, I think it is durable…Millennials’ receptivity to technology and cryptocurrency is real, the digital payments systems is real,” Rieder continued.
The wave of institutions is arriving at a very quick pace.

A steady rise in Bitcoin price and a flurry of institutional adoption have helped crypto hedge funds achieve steep gains.
Finance Magnates reports that despite all the challenges at the start of 2020, cryptocurrency hedge funds have outperformed non-crypto hedge funds by a significant margin.

Earlier this year Tudor Investment Corporation began buying Bitcoin as a hedge against the inflation they see coming from central bank money-printing, telling clients it reminds them of the role gold play in the 1970s. The longtime trader believes the unprecedented quantiative easing from the Federal Reserve is setting the stage for inflation to make a grand comeback.
“Bitcoin has this enormous contingence of really, really smart and sophisticated people who believe in it. It’s like investing with Steve Jobs and Apple or investing in Google early…Also, the reason I recommended Bitcoin is because it was one of the menu of inflation trades, like gold, like TIPS breakevens, like copper, like being long yield curve and I came to the conclusion that Bitcoin was going to be the best inflation trade,” Jones said.

The number of large corporations who continue to purhcase Bitcoin as a reserve asset continue to grow as Stonge Ridge Holding Group (SRHG), a $10B+ AUM asset manager to leading financial advisors, institutions, and insurance companies, announced yesterday that it has purchased more than 10,000 BTC, worth over $100M currently.
