Description

2020 has been a year unlike any, even before the coronavirus pandemic, the global economy was showing signs of stress. With the outbreak, the spread of the virus and subsequent lockdowns, governments worldwide resorted to unprecedented levels of monetary and fiscal stimulus to keep the flailing economy afloat.

With the record levels of money printing and the ballooning money supply, many earmarked 2020 as the year that Bitcoin could prove itself.

In the last few days, Bitcoin has hit all-time highs of around $24,000, but unlike 2017, it is not just retail investors that have flocked to Bitcoin.

MicroStrategy has paved the way for institutional investors to own Bitcoin by not only converting $450m of their treasury to Bitcoin but raising an additional $650m by way of a convertible senior note sale to buy more Bitcoin.

MicroStrategy, legendary macro investors Paul Tudor Jones and Stanley Druckenmiller have taken positions in Bitcoin, signalling a new era of Bitcoin investors.

In this interview, I am joined by Lyn Alden, a macroeconomist and founder of Lyn Alden Investment Strategy. We discuss the coronavirus pandemic's impact, the increase in the broad money supply, high inflation and institutional investment in Bitcoin.
