Bitcoin ownership is a hedge against inflation
The other day, we were revealing that Morgan Creek Capital Management’s Mark Yusko also said that owning Bitcoin and other digital assets is a means to escape the massive inflation.
During a new interview with CNBC, the head of the investment management firm calls Bitcoin a “perfect” store of value asset.
This is extremely important because we live in a world where governments are in a race to devalue their currency.
“When you think about countries like Venezuela or Zimbabwe, where the countries themselves devalue their currency 99.99%, all of your wealth is destroyed…It’s not so much that Bitcoin is getting better relative to those currencies. Those currencies are just getting worse. And the same thing is happening all around the world. There’s a global race to the bottom.”
He continued and explained that when countries become very indebted, the only way out is to devalue the currency.
