PlanB reveals why he remains anonymous
It’s been reveled that the first analyst who applied the stock-to-flow ratio to Bitcoin said that there are two reasons for which he decided to remain anonymous.
In a new interview with In Gold We Trust, PlanB revealed his fans the fact that this day job is part of the reason for which it’s best to maintain his anonymity.
“I am both an analyst and investor at an investment officer of a large institutional investor in the Netherlands. As a team we invest USD 50+ billion AUM,” he said.
PlanB continued and explained: “My main focus is on mortgages, loans, and structured finance. I do not want my employer to have any negative consequences from my Bitcoin ‘hobby’. Also, I consider it good operational security to remain anonymous.”
And it is not just GS. GS presentation is how my employer and many other institutions look at bitcoin: too volatile, a bubble, tulip mania (of course no log scale..), can be hacked (refer to QuadrigaCX..), ponzi, darknet, illicit, ransomware, money laundering etc. Long way to go!
