New Ron Paul Twitter Poll: Over Half of Nearly 70,000 Votes Prefer Bitcoin as a 10-Year Investment
It is no secret that Bitcoin is a popular investment. Now, new proof of that has appeared. Ron Paul, an ex-Congressman from Texas who is known for being a supporter of cryptocurrencies, has recently started a survey on Twitter. He asked his followers how they invest if someone gave them $10,000 USD and they could only collect the investment after 10 years.
A wealthy person gifts you $10,000. You get to choose in which form you’ll accept the gift.
But there’s a catch: You must keep the gift in the form that you choose for 10 years without touching it.
In which form would you accept the gift?

The pool, which was part of a regular series done by the ex-politician in his Twitter profile, has shown how much more popular Bitcoin can be. Around 60% of the people who answered affirmed that they would invest in Bitcoin. 33% would invest in gold, 7% in treasury bonds and only 2% in Federal Reserve notes.
Paul started a similar survey back in 2018 and the results were pretty similar. 49% would invest in Bitcoin, 37% of the responders would invest in gold and 11% in treasury bonds. The dollar investors remained stable at 2%. This shows that despite the bear market that plagued the industry last year and recent shortcomings in price, Bitcoin is still getting increasingly popular.
In related news, Paul has recently received his first physical BTC wallet. According to him, the wallet was a present from Bobby Lee, who is the ex-CEO of BTCC, an old and popular cryptocurrency exchange.
