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.

Larry Fink, CEO of Blackrock, Says Bitcoin Could be Relevant


 

Larry Fink, CEO of Blackrock - the world's largest asset manager, with over $7 trillion under management - updated his stance on Bitcoin yesterday, now acknowledging its potential global relevance. In a conversation with Bank of England governor Mark Carney, he said: "Can it evolve into a global market? Possibly." Forbes reports:

Fink, who was answering questions alongside former Bank of England governor Mark Carney, said the level of attention generated by previous BlackRock comments on bitcoin showed how the cryptocurrency has "caught the attention and the imagination of many" who are "fascinated and excited by it." "Can [bitcoin] evolve into a global market," Fink asked. "Possibly. [Bitcoin is] still untested, a pretty small market relative to other markets. You see these big giant moves every day. It’s a thin market."

tldr

  • These mild comments are a far cry from Fink's 2017 take on bitcoin, where he called it "an index of money laundering" (which was never true)
  • Fink's comments yesterday follow Blackrock fixed income CIO Rick Rieder's comments from two weeks ago, where he suggested bitcoin could eat into gold's marketcap.
  • This positive, or at least warming, take from Fink is yet another in the list of large traditional money managers talking publicly and positively about bitcoin, including Stanley Druckenmiller, Bill Miller, Guggenheim Funds, and AllianceBernstein in recent weeks.

Are we missing a recent story that makes the case for bitcoin?
