What’s new? The Ark Invest founder Cathie Wood does not rule out that the price of bitcoin may rise to $500 000. If institutions allocate around 5% of their portfolio to the first cryptocurrency, it will strengthen more than 10 times its current value.

“Institutional managers have to look at new asset classes that are evolving that have low correlations. BTC is the Holy Grail in terms of asset allocation,” noted Cathie Wood.
