Some of the most prominent investors continue to back cryptocurrency and the blockchain technology. Hong Kong billionaire Li Ka-shing has invested in the latest funding round of Intercontinental Exchange’s (ICE) crypto trading platform Bakkt through his venture capital firm Horizon Ventures.
Similarly, Wall Street investor Bill Miller, who had invested in Bitcoin previously, expects the leading cryptocurrency to be worth either a lot more or zero.
According to Miller, he likes to keep cryptocurrencies in his portfolio because their performance is decoupled from the traditional asset classes. Though an active investor, he considers himself a “Bitcoin observer,” but not a “believer” yet.
On the other hand, the Winklevoss brothers are big believers in cryptocurrencies. They expect the market capitalization of Bitcoin to cross that of gold in the future. Because of that, they continue to support the idea of a Bitcoin exchange-traded fund (ETF).
The recent Ethereum Classic (ETC) 51 percent attack has many worried whether the same can be happen to Bitcoin (BTC) in the future. The opinions are divided, but such challenges are to be expected in a new asset class. This will only encourage the participants to find solutions to avoid such attacks in the future.
Bitcoin has been trading near the neckline for the past two days.
