About Bitcoin and digital currencies, Fink said:
“The world of crypto is digitalizing gold in many ways. Instead of investing in gold as a hedge against inflation a hedge against promises of any country or devaluation of currency, Bitcoin is an international asset and is not based in any currency.”
Bitcoin has been traded above $30,000 for a few weeks already and it continues to attract investors from all over the world. At UseTheBitcoin, we have reported that Valkyrie filed for a spot Bitcoin ETF as other companies in the market.
There is a growing interest from larger investors and institutions that are searching to diversify their investments and gain exposure to the world’s largest digital currency.
