Miller Opportunity Trust is confident in the potential of bitcoin and is not worried about its fluctuations in market value which might lead to losses. They are also not afraid of the volatility, as they understand it will settle down soon.
Bitcoin has been one of the top cryptocurrencies in the past decade, delivering thousands of percent returns in just a few years. From an investment perspective, this digital asset is one of the most reliable, giving investors a limited amount of risk in any economic climate.
While many crypto fanatics agree, Bitcoin is likely to soon hit an all-time high. Perceptions of Bitcoin are evolving rapidly, reflected in its soaring value in financial markets. The gold market cap is $1.1 trillion, but Bitcoin is far from digital gold at this price and the Miller Opportunity Trust, a fund founded by Bill Miller says that Bitcoin, like digital gold, still has a long way to go to catch up.
According to a filing with the SEC, on June 20 the hedge fund Millers Opportunity Trust held 1.5 million shares of the Grayscale Bitcoin Trust (GBTC) for $447,515,000 worth of shares. Miller’s position on the GBTC should not come as a surprise, as he has remained optimistic about the prospects for Bitcoin since its price plunged in March. Bill Miller, a highly successful value investor and Buffett acolyte, invested early in the year with his Fund heavily in Bitcoin, but was forced to sell off his bitcoin holdings to a separate account for investors.
The billionaire’s bitcoin holdings are worth more than Amazon shares when you look at his outlook for bitcoin. Bill Miller, the legendary value investor and founder of the Miller Value Fund, did not specify a price target as securities analysts said he expects Bitcoin to rise in the next 12 to 18 months from $50,000 to $100000, a bullish expectation. When asked about regulatory risks, Miller said he doesn’t think they are a problem because Bitcoin is decentralized.
Bitcoin gained widespread popularity
Bitcoin has been around for more than ten years, with it having its first recorded transaction in 2009. Since then, many people have grown to love the decentralized cryptocurrency’s ability to let users verify transactions without an intermediary like a bank or government. The increasing popularity of Bitcoin is not only because it offers consumers cheaper and easy-to-use services but also because of the potential that it holds in the future of finance.
