Raoul Pal, the founder and CEO of Global Macro Investor who has more than 50% of his capital in Bitcoin, is anticipating a wave of institutional funds to push Bitcoin to $1,000,000 in the next 5 years.
In an interview with Stansberry Research, the former hedge fund manager says that the world economy is moving from the “hope phase” to the “insolvency phase” as investors realize that the economy is going to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic much slower than originally expected. Along with institutional adoption, he believes this narrative may create the perfect set-up for a huge long-term BTC bull cycle.
“…There’s no stimulus around, and we’ve got more problems to come in Europe, the US and elsewhere, and businesses don’t have enough cash flow. They’re closing in droves and that’s what I call the ‘Insolvency Phase’…
“Yeah, I think [$1 million is] about right. Just from what I know from all of the institutions and all of the people I speak to, there is an enormous wall of money coming into this. It’s an enormous wall of money. Just the pipes aren’t there to allow people to do it yet, and that’s coming, but it’s on everybody’s radar screen and there’s a lot of smart people working on it.”
Though Pal considers himself a “hybrid adopter” of both gold and Bitcoin, he still says that he’s considering selling his gold to buy more Bitcoin.
“When you get to the macro opportunity, when it’s all happening and Bitcoin starts breaking out of these patterns that its been forming, it is going to massively outperform gold. I am 100% sure of that, so in which case, why would I have a gold allocation?”
