"Something Needs To Go Really Wrong Not For Bitcoin To Appreciate"
That's a quote from a new Bloomberg Intelligence report
Happy Thursday, Blockfolians
There is a growing sense of strength in the bitcoin narrative. The specter of money printing has brought folks like Paul Tudor Jones in as a hedge against inflation. As protests engulf the country and discussions of financial tracking and other types of surveillance grow, others are looking with keen interest at bitcoin’s properties of censorship resistance.
That strength is certainly finding its way into the mainstream of financial discourse. A new Bloomberg Intelligence report on bitcoin points to macro tailwinds and resilience over the last few months as major factors that could lead to matching or exceeding All Time Highs.
The price prediction has (expectedly) gotten the biggest reaction, but the whole piece is worth checking out.
