ARK Invest CEO Believes in Bitcoin’s Future
ARK Invest CEO Cathie Wood has expressed that the company’s confidence in Bitcoin reaching a price of $1.5 million within the next decade has increased. On Bloomberg TV on July 17, Wood commented that the aftermath of the regional banking crisis in March has made ARK’s “bull case” for Bitcoin increasingly likely.
Banking Crisis Leads to Flight to Safety
According to Wood, the banking crisis resulted in investors flocking to Bitcoin, even amidst a general meltdown in the stock market. This “flight to safety” caused Bitcoin to rally to almost $30,000 from $19,000, which shows that the flagship crypto has become a viable safe-haven asset, much like gold.
Bitcoin Becoming an Insurance Policy
Wood believes Bitcoin will continue to establish itself as an „insurance policy“ against inflation and that „everyone will want it at the end of the day.“ She sees this trend taking place over time rather than overnight and believes that investing now would be advantageous for those looking for long-term growth potential with their portfolios.
