What else did Miller add? When asked about the long-term prospects of bitcoin, the investor said that he expects the cryptocurrency market to grow in the future. Earlier, Miller called the first cryptocurrency digital gold. He also advised investors who are not well versed in digital assets not to invest more than 1% of funds in this area.

The investor recalled that he has experienced “at least three declines of over 80%.” Miller started buying the cryptocurrency back when it was worth $200. In January 2022, the entrepreneur stated that he had invested half of his savings in digital assets.

Who is Bill Miller? An American investor and entrepreneur, he was previously Chairman and Chief Investment Officer of Legg Mason Capital Management. In 2019, Miller’s company Miller Value Partners became one of the most profitable in the history of hedge funds.

What happened before? Trader and analyst Peter Brandt sees $27 000 as a local bottom for the bitcoin price, from which a rebound could occur. A surge in trading volumes can be seen on the BTC chart, which indicates capitulation. This process could mean the cessation of further price declines, according to Brandt.

On May 10, analytics firm Santiment reported that about 40 620 BTC ($1,27 billion as of May 11) had been sent to crypto exchanges. This was the largest inflow of funds to the platforms since December 2019.
