Bloomberg combats Bitcoin and gold

In a recently published report and already very divided, the visionary eye of Bloomberg made the whole cryptosphere dream by aligning predictions for the least optimistic: according to our famous analysts, the new digital gold would reach 100,000 dollars in 2025, no you are not dreaming, it is a number to thrill more than one.

Their calculation is simple, starting at $ 10 in 2011, the cryptocurrency was content to add zeros consecutively. Bitcoin therefore took about four years to go from $ 1,000 to $ 10,000 in 2017, therefore a “doubling of the maturation of the facts” would make it pass to $ 100,000 in 5 years. Does all this seem very simple to you? We went to investigate a little further and what we discovered is not going to leave you indifferent.

First, Rising Bitcoin Prices Creates Increased Demand and not supply since by nature the number of bitcoins on the market remains stable and makes it a scarce asset, like gold. This explains whywith each boom in its price, Bitcoin marketing is guaranteed and thus naturally attracts new investors, from all walks of life.

With less than $ 200 billion in capitalization, Bitcoin is still too modest for large institutions like central banks, but as its price increases, it could rise to the same level as gold.

Secondly then, Bitcoin tends to look more and more like gold. Just as Bloomberg announces that Bitcoin will flirt with $ 14,000 before 2021, he also analyzes that cryptocurrency is more and more correlated with gold: the graph below also shows the biggest Bitcoin / Gold correlation since 2010 over 12 months :

Thirdly, Bitcoin would therefore become a new version of gold, it is not for nothing that many analysts already called it l’or digital : indeed, the digital asset is increasing considerably and most indicators are green for widespread adoption and an appreciation of its price, despite its scarcity which makes it a sought-after asset.

From yellow gold to digital gold

It is not the crisis that will disrupt this trend, which, as Bloomberg indicates, has already been observed for a long time. It remains to be seen if these analyzes will be confirmed, in the meantime, we are continuing our analysis in what explains the strong correlation between yellow gold and digital gold.

In the battle between Bitcoin and Gold, the investor is king.

Indeed, on closer inspection, will Bitcoin manage to overtake gold as a safe haven for institutional investors?

It is true thatin times of crisis gold and bitcoin are safe investments, as they have proven over time by their strong correlation. It is explained by the macro hedging allowed by these two rare and precious assets used against inflation and devaluation of fiat currency and more traditional actions in the stock market.

Bloomberg figures thus confirm that cryptocurrency is by far the best performing asset in this year 2020, with an increase of 66%, ahead of gold which however peaks at record amounts. Yield is undoubtedly the competitive advantage of digital gold over its metal alter ego. But, beyond even the correlation between Bitcoin and Gold, the real question is who will reign supreme in the coming years? In other words, Will the Gold Rush version 2.0 actually happen?

With current negative interest rate trends, investors are paying banks to ensure liquidity, but capital flight away from bonds risks tipping the balance towards Bitcoin, even if Bank of America announces an upcoming rise in gold to settle at $ 3,000 per ounce.

To observe the choices of Saylor for Microstrategy, many institutional investors risk being inspired to no longer buy only gold as a simple refuge but also invest heavily in new digital gold, without restraint.

We went to push the reflection as far as Russia where Bitcoin would now be more popular than gold among investors. Indeed, it is the World Gold Council (WGC) which reports the info : out of 2023 investors surveyed, 68% of participants said “gold is considered an effective store of value”. However, in a chart that illustrates investments in Russia over the past 12 months, cryptocurrencies represent a higher percentage than gold: 17% vs. 16%, everything is relative, but it should be noted.

On the side of our Russian neighbors, Bitcoin would therefore be a serious competitor to gold which will have to demonstrate its interest in the years to come if it wants to retain its place as an all-time safe haven.


Even though Bloomberg notes a bullish rally in gold through 2023, what about Bitcoin’s run to zeros?

The rise of Bitcoin, at the speed of light

The Bitcoin rally is indeed pushing the world’s first cryptocurrency ahead of gold and silver, and some of our friends across the Atlantic would even have called it le Paypal Bump, due to the very recent announcement of lopening of a new service by fintech already very popular around the world.

In addition to this phenomenon that we could anticipate, and despite a decrease due to the coronavirus pandemic, Bitcoin on the verge of one of the biggest increases in its history potentially far exceeding that of 2017.

With the strong correlation observed vis-à-vis gold, the famous cryptocurrency is moving from a risky speculative asset to a crypto version of the yellow metal.

To the moon and back ?

In any case, this is what many analyzes show. Here, in this graphic produced by Fork, we even go so far as to read that Bitcoin would be a new precious commodity, having supplanted gold and silver :

Although the $ 13,000 is not the last level reached to date by Bitcoin, according to our data it would be the 20th largest increase in a day since September 21, 2019.

The Paypal announcement will therefore have caused a stir in the meteoric rise of encrypted metal.

But, according to Mike McGlone’s predictions, gold could reach $ 7,000 by 2025. According to him, the same monetary conditions which made it possible to multiply the price of gold by 7.5 between 2001 and 2011 are visible today, so put your bets!
