Raoul Pal, the founder of the media company Real Vision said such a surge in BTC price could happen if a number of institutional funds inject “an enormous” amount of money into the cryptocurrency.
The world’s largest cryptocurrency had a great year and advanced around 40% since the start of the year, hitting $11,387 yesterday. Bitcoin’s current market cap is standing at around $200 billion.
“Just from what I know from all of the institutions, all of the people I speak to, there is an enormous wall of money coming into this,” Pal said in an interview with Stansberry Research.
“It’s an enormous wall of money — just the pipes aren’t there to allow people to do it yet, and that’s coming. But it’s on everybody’s radar screen, and there’s a lot of smart people working on it.”
He also said that the global economy is nearing the “insolvency phase” as the recovery process from coronavirus is progressing much slower than expected.
“The economy’s not going to recover for a lot longer than we expect,” Pal argued. He emphasized the lack of stimulus and pointed to upcoming challenges all around the world.
“And businesses don’t have enough cash flow. They’re closing in droves. And that’s what I called the insolvency phase,” he said.
Pal said the only efficient response to the current crisis “is more from the central banks, so that’s why I started to buy more and more bitcoin.”
Until recently, Pal’s portfolio was quite diversified, with his assets being evenly distributed among dollars, gold, equities, and bitcoin, Cambone said. According to him, he now holds more than 50% in Bitcoin.
