What is it: This shows bitcoin's ROI vs other potential inflation hedge assets.

Why it matters: As with the historical bitcoin price table, we see bitcoin's extreme outperformance vs other assets here as well. Bitcoin's relatively small size, plus fundamental properties, yield extreme outperformance when even relatively small funds-flows find their way to BTC.

BlackRock Says They've 'Dabbled' in Bitcoin


 

BlackRock's ($8.6T AUM) Rick Rieder - CIO of Global Fixed Income and Head of the Global Allocation Team, said on CNBC this morning that BlackRock has "started to dabble a bit into" bitcoin.


Mr Rieder specifically noted the search for viable "storehouses of value" as the backdrop for this:

Today the volatility of it is extraordinary, but listen... People are looking for storehouses of value. People are looking for places that could appreciate under the assumption that inflation moves higher and debts are building, so we've started to dabble a bit into it. ... My sense is the technology has evolved, and the regulation has evolved, to the point where a number of people find that it should be part of the portfolio, so that's what's driving the price up.


When pressed regarding what % allocation BlackRock has made to bitcoin or crypto in general, he declined to give specifics but elaborated on their reasoning by saying:

We're holding a lot more cash than we've held historically because duration doesn't work, interest rates don't work as hedge, so diversifying into other assets makes some sense. And so holding some portion of what you hold in cash in things like crypto seems to make some sense to me.

tldr

  • Mr Rieder made headlines back in November for suggesting that bitcoin could eat into gold's marketcap
  • Mr Rieder joins many other $1B+ money managers in allocating to bitcoin or expressing similar sentiments in recent months
