In light of the escalating U.S.-China trade tensions, we built out a real-time case study, Hedging U.S.-China Trade Risk with Bitcoin.

Our report places the trade dispute in a broader context, providing a brief overview of the role that Bitcoin may play in a portfolio in the event of a global liquidity crisis. It also illustrates why we believe Bitcoin may serve as a viable hedge against asset devaluations.

While the risk asset drawdown is still in its early stages, we’re already witnessing Bitcoin’s price move higher. Specifically, Bitcoin has generated a cumulative return of 104.8% between May 5 — when tariff hikes were announced — and August 7, compared to an average drawdown of -0.5% for the other asset classes we analyzed over the same period. It’s worth reviewing our report for the full analysis.
