Legendary hedge fund manager Paul Tudor Jones recently highlighted the potential benefits of Bitcoin in a televised interview where he emphasized the advantage of having an asset with 100% certainty, especially in an uncertain world where inflation may not be transitory. Furthermore, Bitcoin’s use as a portfolio diversification tool was also underscored.
This however is not the first time the billionaire has acknowledged Bitcoin’s potential. Tudor Jones’ investment foray into the crypto world was announced as early as May of last year when he called Bitcoin the “fastest horse” in this [inflationary] environment, while at that time also revealing that he was holding one to two percent of his assets in Bitcoin.
Given this, investors should take heed that the investment stalwart’s preferred Bitcoin allocation has more than doubled to five percent which matches his recommended allocations for gold, cash, and commodities.
To quote him, Tudor Jones stated “I look at bitcoin as a story of wealth. I look at crypto as a story of wealth.” In this context, it is worth noting that famed investors such as Paul Tudor Jones, Stanley Druckenmiller, Bill Miller, and Ray Dalio are giving their stamp of approval to Bitcoin.
As such, with anything novel and unique, a critical threshold of support is necessary before mainstream investor acceptance becomes the norm. However, this process is unfolding in the present day and a new asset class is entering the financial landscape.
