Even At Sub $200B Market Cap, Bitcoin is A Store of Value Now: Macro Trader Dan Tapiero

  • The Fed is being too “aggressive” and responding “wrongly” – chief financial economist of MUFG Union Bank
  • 200 billion bitcoin means it's SoV now – macro trader Dan Tapiero
  • Coinbase CEO Brian Armstrong believes falling stock market and interest rate cuts may lead to growth in crypto this year

While the US stock market has been recording considerable losses despite the Federal reserve's emergency 50 basis point rate cut, investors have piled into the safe haven asset Treasuries to combat the economic impact of the deadly coronavirus (covid-19).

The two-year Treasury yield has dropped to 0.70% while the 10-year plunged for the first time ever to below 1%. Investors have fled from the risk assets as the spreading virus threatens to derail global growth. The other safe haven asset, gold, has also been rising during this time, climbing to a 7-year high.

According to Chris Rupkey, chief financial economist for MUFG Union Bank, the Fed is being too “aggressive” and responding “wrongly” to the financial markets. “We aren’t in a recession yet,” and Fed cutting rates won’t keep it from coming. He added,

“Moving between meetings with a bigger than normal interest rate cut looks like Fed officials are panicking as much as stock market investors did last week.”

Bitcoin is a SoV

Macro trader Dan Tapiero says on Twitter,

However, this could be good for the crypto market, bitcoin especially, as the crypto asset like gold have non-negative yields.

Bitcoin currently is a store of value as Tapiero explains,

The Year of Crypto

Coinbase CEO Brian Armstrong also feels,

“A down stock market and interest rate cuts may lead to growth in crypto this year. Governments around the world are likely to look to stimulate the economy in any way they can, including using quantitative easing and expanding the money supply (printing money).”

He pointed out how China has already printed $173 billion which may lead to the movement of these finds into cryptocurrencies, which,

“Are viewed as a hedge against inflation.”

“This could be the year where the mindset of institutional investors begins to shift, from crypto as a venture bet, to crypto as a reserve currency.”

However, the crypto community was quick to point out that it isn’t crypto rather bitcoin. Today, Amstrong again took to Twitter,

It is interesting that “the CEO of the world's most prominent Bitcoin-related company seems so skeptical of Bitcoin” said Joe Weisenthal Co-host of ‘What'd You Miss?' on Bloomberg TV.
