06 Nov Stock Market Bear Sets $1 Million Bitcoin Price Target
Hedge fund manager Mark Yusko forecasts that the bitcoin price has the potential to reach $1 million over the long term as the network effect leads increasing numbers of investors to use it as a store of value in place of traditional commodities such as precious metals.
Yusko, who founded Morgan Creek Capital Management and serves as the firm’s chief investment officer, is noted for his bearish outlook on the stock market. Earlier this year, he predicted that the U.S. economy is “going to have a crash and it will be massive.”
Anticipating a coming recession, he believes actively-managed funds will outperform passive index funds that track the S&P 500 or other major indices, which is one reason why he accepted Warren Buffet’s offer to conduct a decade-long wager pitting an S&P 500 index fund against a basket of hedge funds, even though the last investor who took that bet is slated to lose by a considerable margin. Buffet, 87, has since withdrawn the offer for a second wager, citing his age.
