Aliens TLDR

Most astute investors realize the importance of bitcoin in a digital world, Bloomberg Intelligence strategist says Gold ETFs are a main way investors report gaining exposure to the asset, but a spot bitcoin ETF has not yet been approved About half of surveyed gold buyers report plans to acquire more of the asset, but a third of respondents believe bitcoin is a viable alternative, according to a survey by blockchain infrastructure platform Paxos.

The survey, published Wednesday, gathered responses from 1,000 adults in the US, UK, Singapore and Germany who have purchased some form of gold — ETFs, physical bars, gold coins or tokenized gold — in the past two years.

The top motivation for those saying they plan to buy more gold is concern around inflation, which has reached a 40-year high.

“The popularity of bitcoin is poised to affect the market, with 33% of respondents saying ‘bitcoin is the new gold,’ and they plan to purchase more of it, instead of gold.” The survey comes as bitcoin and the broader crypto market have seen price plunges in recent weeks.

But he wrote in a Twitter post Thursday that crude oil “may have gotten a bit too hot within an enduring bear market,” noting that bitcoin could outperform the commodity in the second half of the year.

The Bloomberg Intelligence strategist said despite all the talk around inflation, the bigger risk is deflation — an environment in which he expects buyers of both bitcoin and gold to do well.

“Most astute investors realize you’ve got to have some bitcoin in that bucket or you’re risking holding an analog asset in a world that’s going digital,” McGlone said.
