Solana CEO Anatoly Yakovenko: Here’s Why We’re Not in a Crypto Bubble

Bitcoin has ‘significant upward potential’ as digital gold, says fund run by Bill Miller

  • Miller Opportunity Trust, a value fund overseen by the firm founded by investor Bill Miller, touched on its exposure to bitcoin in an investor update on Friday. 
  • “In the quarter, as bitcoin fell, the trust traded at one of its larger discounts to its underlying holdings in bitcoin providing additional upside potential. We believe Bitcoin has significant upside potential as a form of “digital gold”. 
  • With gold’s market capitalization greater than $11T, Bitcoin’s current cap close to $600B would have a long way to go to catch up. We are early in a continuing adoption curve and Bitcoin will be volatile but we think the risk-reward is attractive.”
