What is bitcoin rising?

Ordinarily, the Nigerian Naira doesn’t have an advantage over major currencies, no thanks to its poor economic policies and fall in the price of crude oil at the international market.

The Naira against the US dollar is poor, so also the Great Pound, so isn’t worrisome that 1BTC is over N8 million naira, if the naira couldn’t make any gain against USD.

In our earlier report, eToro’s Simon Peters was quoted as saying listed some of the factors that contributed to the surge in the price of bitcoin to a “massive influx of investors from large scale institutions” they include:

  • Investment trusts,
  • Pension schemes
  • University endowment funds

Also, some people who see a brighter future in gold are now changing the narrative, saying bitcoin could be a modern investment alternative.

Both assets are similar in terms of supply. There is a finite supply. Bitcoin is limited to 21 million coins.

Some investors may as a better alternative to preserve their investments, says Russ Mould, the investment director at AJ Bell.
