Bitcoin will replace gold and soar in price to $700,000, says major investor

Bitcoin is better than gold “on every front” and could eventually be worth around $700,000, according to an institutional investor.

John Pfeffer, a partner at UK-based Pfeffer Capital, made the remarks at the Sohn investment conference in New York. That event traditionally serves as a place for investors to recommend the best stocks to invest in – and has never seen anyone recommend cryptocurrency before.

“Bitcoin is the first viable candidate to replace gold the world has ever seen,” Mr Pfeffer said. "So if bitcoin becomes the dominant non-sovereign store of value, it could be the new gold, or new reserve currency."

He added: “Most [other] crypto assets out there are bad bets.”

Mr Pfeffer said that if bitcoin displaced 25 per cent of foreign reserves, the total worth of the bitcoin network would be somewhere in the region of $6.4 trillion. Bitcoin’s current market cap is currently around $150 billion, while one bitcoin is worth just under $9,000.
