It is well known in the crypto circle that Tesla CEO Musk is a master of cryptocurrency. He has expressed his support for bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies on his Twitter account many times. Although Musk’s attitude occasionally makes a big turn, there is no doubt that he has become one of the biggest influencers of cryptocurrency. I did not expect that a well-known figure recently came to reveal that he has been involved in the field of encryption. The celebrity is Cook, the head of Apple.
In an interview with reporters after attending the "The New York Times DealBook" conference on the evening of November 9th, local time, Cook rarely mentioned his views on cryptocurrencies. He stated that he has been interested in cryptocurrency for some time, has been researching this topic, and believes that it is reasonable to own it as part of a diversified investment portfolio. The head of Apple also confirmed that he personally holds some cryptocurrencies. However, Cook made it clear that this is not investment advice for anyone.
As the CEO of Apple Inc., the top global market capitalization list, Cook's views on cryptocurrencies also confirm that cryptocurrencies have entered the ranks of mainstream asset investment. The perception that Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies were scams has gradually collapsed. Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies have replaced gold as the new darlings in the eyes of investment institutions.
As many as 27 listed companies invest in Bitcoin
According to statistics from CoinGecko, a cryptocurrency data analysis platform, there are currently as many as 27 listed companies holding bitcoins in the world, holding more than 210,000 bitcoins, with a total value of 12.3 billion U.S. dollars. Among them, MicroStrategy Inc holds a maximum of 114,042 coins, and Tesla ranks second with 48,000 bitcoins.
Michael J. MicroStrategy, founder and CEO of MicroStrategy. Saylor said in this regard that his company will continue to hoard bitcoins in the next few years. Although the price of this cryptocurrency continues to fluctuate, it will always rise. He also believes that in the next ten years, Bitcoin will become the most powerful, hardest, and most technologically advanced store of value in the economy.
Not only that, many countries including Venezuela have also included Bitcoin in the basket of strategic reserve assets, low-key but large-scale deployment of Bitcoin and mining machine industries, and even mobilized military power to mine Bitcoin. El Salvador also passed a bill on June 9th this year to designate Bitcoin as a national legal tender. It can be seen that encrypted assets represented by Bitcoin have entered the ranks of mainstream asset allocation.
