Both bitcoin (BTC) and gold will benefit enormously from the present “inflation of money,” the CEO of a significant crypto business anticipates, while likewise confessing that he thinks people need to still own more gold than bitcoin.

The recommendations to savers fretted about the unmatched money printing in the wake of the COVID-19 panic in financial markets was made by Alex Mashinsky, CEO of crypto loan provider Celsius Network, in a current interview with KitcoNews


According to Mashinsky, there are “consequences” to what reserve banks– and in specific the United States Federal Reserve— has actually performed in the wake of the crisis with concerns to money printing:

“You don’t just print 3 or 4 trillion dollars and nothing happens,” he stated, including that the noted customer cost index (CPI) figures in the United States “does not include inflation of money.” As a result, we now have “tremendous inflation of money that is hidden from us,” Mashinsky stated, prior to exposing what he thinks savers need to do:

“So, before the Coronavirus, if you told somebody 5% gold and maybe 1% bitcoin, they thought you were crazy. Right now, after Corona, and after 36 million people unemployed, I would say 25% gold and 5% bitcoin.”

Mashinsky, who is likewise a venture capital financier, added that in his view, “gold may appreciate ten times its value, but bitcoin may appreciate a hundred times its value.” The service to the present circumstance, according to the CEO is for that reason to now own “much more gold, and much more bitcoin.”

Celsius provides both crypto and gold investing-related services.

On the other hand, the widely known European hedge fund manager and main bank critic Crispin Odey cautioned that even gold might not be as safe as advocates like to think.

According to Odey, who handles the hedge fund Odey European Inc., national federal governments might reach prohibiting private gold ownership “if they feel the need to create a stable unit of account for world trade.”

“It is no surprise that people are buying gold. But the authorities may attempt at some point to de-monetize gold, making it illegal to own as a private individual,” Bloomberg quoted Odey as stating in a private letter to financiers. Odey is increasing financial investments in gold: holdings of June gold futures represented 39.9% of the fund’s net property worth at the end of the month, up from 15.9% at the end of March.
