Can Bitcoin Join Gold at the Alternative Asset Table?

The growing prominence of Bitcoin is securing the cryptocurrency’s place as an alternative asset. In fact, some have gone so far as to call Bitcoin the “new gold”, even as Bitcoin is far more volatile and speculative.
In this exclusive webcast, MicroStrategy CEO Michael Saylor will share his thoughts on cryptocurrencies and why he believes this is the decade of Bitcoin. Frank Holmes, CEO of U.S. Global Investors and Executive Chairman of HIVE Blockchain Technologies will discuss why there may be a place for both digital currencies and gold in everyday investment strategies and how to explore incorporating both into a portfolio strategy. U.S. Global Investors does not invest directly in gold or Bitcoin.
