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.

Why Own Bitcoin

Filed under: topic icon investment  medium icon blogs

EXCERPT

First, own only what you can afford to lose. I believe there is at least a 20% chance that Bitcoin fails. And it may fail very quickly – even overnight – without much time to react. If you remember one thing from reading this post, remember not to own more bitcoin than you can afford to lose. For most people, this is 1% of your net worth.

Second, own bitcoin. I believe there is a 50% chance that one bitcoin is worth more than $1,000,000 in the next 10 years, or over 300x more than it is worth right now. The potential reward is so big that it makes sense to own some and to hold it for a long time. Even a small amount can change your life.
