What’s new? US billionaire and Duquesne Capital hedge fund founder Stanley Druckenmiller said he sees a long-term opportunity for cryptocurrency growth, but for that the traditional financial system must collapse. According to him, digital assets can play a big role in reviving the economy because people will not trust central banks. Druckenmiller told CNBC during the Delivering Alpha Investor summit in New York.
