Referring to the current economic crisis and that of the Coronavirus, the billionaire investor indicated that the dollar is for him a wasting asset that is losing its value.
For him, Bitcoin is a big speculation and therefore an opportunistic investment opportunity that must be seized.
However, Paul Tudor Jones indicates that he has invested only a small part of his portfolio of course, he mentions 1% and thinking a little more, he specifies that it is almost 2% of his capital that he therefore has placed in Bitcoin.
“This is great speculation. I have something like … just over 1% of my Bitcoin assets. Maybe it’s almost 2. It seems to be the right number right now.”
