What else did Dalio say? According to the businessman, even though the authorities in several countries are trying to declare digital currencies illegal, the blockchain revolution is on its way. Dalio believes that it is unlikely that the governments around the world will ban digital assets. But they will not include them in their calculations as reserve currencies either, the billionaire added.

As for his own portfolio, Dalio said it also contains bitcoin as well as other asset classes. The businessman stated that he prefers not to hold only cash because it “gets eaten up by inflation.”
