Friends, in celebration of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange’s (CME) launch of two new bitcoin indexes (BRR & BRTI), is going to compare the price of bitcoin and gold on a daily basis. We at FintekNews have written (and are on record) of saying that bitcoin will outperform gold in the future.** Bitcoin IS the new gold.
Trading thought (from 11/30): We fully realize that a ‘pure’ bitcoin/gold comparison is not a level playing field. First, the capitalization of bitcoin is minuscule compared to gold (for now), gold has many more applications (do not bring your significant other a bitcoin necklace for a gift) such as jewelry and gold is……well, prettier. We are using this comparison to make a case that bitcoin is the new gold as a safe haven, flight to safety. It is.
We wrote an article (8/17) going on the record saying bitcoin will outperform gold throughout the future. Should you have done that (long bitcoin, short gold) you would be up $314.87 or 41.8% (see chart above). No reason to change, bitcoin has replaced gold as a safe haven.
