Bitcoin is undeniably a mainstream asset class and most investors should consider including crypto assets as part of a diversified portfolio, asserts the boss of one of the world’s largest independent financial advisory, asset management and fintech organisations.

The bullish observation from Nigel Green, CEO and founder of deVere Group, which has $12bn under advisement, comes as the world’s dominant cryptocurrency hits a new all-time high of more than $66,000 on Wednesday.

Bitcoin Price Prediction

Mr Green notes: “In July, we publicly predicted that Bitcoin would reach and most likely beat it’s previous all-time highs.

“I am confident that whilst there might be some profit-taking in the near-term, so that investors can accumulate more later, the momentum is such that we can expect prices to continue on their upward trajectory.”

He continues: “This fresh all-time high deniably cements Bitcoin as a mainstream asset class. I believe that most investors should consider including crypto assets as part of a diversified portfolio."

“Why? Because crypto is the inevitable future of money and there is clearly going to be advantages for those investors who have exposure early on – in the same way as those who invested in the major internet, online and tech successes back in the day, such as Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN), Google (NASDAQ:GOOGL) and Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL), have secured enormous returns.”

Launch Of The ProShares Bitcoin Strategy ETF

Wednesday's price highs come as the ProShares Bitcoin Strategy ETF (NYSE:BITO) – the first of its kind - launched on the New York Stock Exchange on Tuesday at the opening bell.

The deVere CEO says there are there are five main factors that will secure the longer-term upward price trajectory.

“First is the U.S. Federal Reserve saying it has no intention of banning cryptocurrencies. It’s highly probable that other cryptocurrencies will have more stringent regulatory oversight, yet Bitcoin could be viewed differently by authorities partly due to its gold-like status.” 

“Second is the ongoing, mounting interest from institutional investors including Wall Street giants and major payments companies, who bring their capital, expertise and reputational influence to the market."

“Third, is the rising number of crypto advocates and mega influencers like Elon Musk, Jack Dorsey and Cathie Wood who have a clear message: crypto is the inevitable future of money.”

'Fourth, the technicals back the prediction. Looking at Bitcoin halving events, over time we’ve seen that values rise substantially in the year after a halving. After the 2012 and 2016 Bitcoin halvings, prices increased by 55 times and 15 times respectively.'

“And fifth, cryptocurrencies – Bitcoin in particular – have changed the way the world handles money, does business, makes transactions and manages assets. Investors appreciate the intrinsic value of digital, borderless, global currencies for trade and commerce purposes in increasingly digitalised economies in which businesses operate in more than one jurisdiction.”

He goes on to say: “This will only increase as mass global adoption increases. Only last month El Salvador became the first country in the world to adopt Bitcoin as legal tender, and I’m certain many others will follow suit.”

Mr Green concludes: “Today is a major milestone. It underscores crypto´s mainstream appeal and galvanises its place in the global financial system.”

It's all lucky streak speculation. IMHO there is no value in bitcoin as a currency or value. We know that none or mostly none of the bit.co.in tickers made it through the 2020 market cra.s.h. -- I have full faith in blockchain but not in bi.tc.oin.
