Do experienced investors invest in cryptocurrencies?

Which experienced investors are investing in cryptocurrencies.

We are always very interested in the opinions of experienced investors regarding Bitcoin (BTC, real-time price) and the other cryptocurrencies. They obviously have a wealth of experience in understanding how markets behave. This is, however, not the only relevant fact. There are two more reasons why it is interesting to know what experienced, big-name investors are doing: their effective behaviour and their government connections.

Investments in digital assets are considered highly speculative investments and are subject to high volatility and therefore may not be suitable for all investors. Each investor should consider carefully, and possibly with external advice, whether digital assets are suitable for them. Make sure you understand any digital asset before you trade it.

These experienced investors are investing

Their behaviour is important, because, facts speak louder than words. Investment superstar billionaire Steven Cohen, just stated his company is now actively looking into cryptocurrencies, and in particular into the blockchain technology behind cryptocurrencies. Cohen declared his company, is starting very small, but will gradually increase its investments as their knowledge grows. 

Another investment superstar and billionaire, Paul Tudor Jones, just declared he considers Bitcoin a great portfolio diversifier. The investor currently keeps 5% in cash, 5% in commodities, 5% in gold and 5% in Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. In what Tudor Jones invests the remaining 80% depends, he declared, on what the Federal Reserve will decide regarding the interest rates.

Will governments eliminate cryptocurrencies?

Other investor superstars are less positive on cryptocurrencies. This brings us to the sword of Damocles, which hangs above cryptos. Indeed, what actions will governments take to maintain the dominance of their own currencies. The fact that they can monitor and document every transaction of their citizens is an extra bonus.

One superstar investor, Jim Rogers, is of the opinion that governments will sign the death warrants of non-governmental cryptocurrencies. Rogers is not alone. Hedge fund manager Michael Bury also believes this will be the case. He stated “I don’t hate BTC,” but “the long term future is tenuous for decentralized crypto in a world of legally violent, heartless centralized governments with lifeblood interests in monopolies on currencies.” When asked about the short term price of BTC he responded “In the short run anything is possible.”

The future will tell.
