Bitcoin Becomes King Of 2020 Investments As It Surpasses Gold
Following the significant fall in price from back on March 12, when Bitcoin traded below $4,000, the crypto market managed to recover entirely.
At the moment of writing this article, Bitcoin is trading in the green and the digital asset is priced at $9,047.17.
Bitcoin is the most profitable 2020 investment
Equities have suffered massive losses in 2020, and gold was up 7.83 on the year.
Bitcoin is now the most –profitable investment so far, rising 21% from $7,203 at the beginning of 2020.
Bitcoin usually reacts to the massive crashes in the traditional markets, such as the one that took place on March 12.
Now, crypto analyst Scott Melker said that the numbers are showing that BTC is definitely an uncorrelated asset.
“Correlation has a specific definition based on a mathematical formula with regards to finance. By this definition, Bitcoin and the market are not correlated…” he said.
Melker continued and explained that “The idea of ranking correlated assets was developed by Markowitz when he presented Modern Portfolio Theory. Using a math formula, you can compare any 2 assets on a scale of -1 to 1. 1 means correlated – if one asset moves 5%, so will the other. -1 means inversely correlated.”
