Investor Raoul Pal who’s very popular among the crypto circles has made a big revelation recently. On Monday, November 30, Pal plans to liquidate all his Gold holdings and put it all at work by buying Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH). This speaks volumes about the confidence that Pal holds in the future rally and earning potential with the two cryptocurrencies.
The proceeds of all his gold-liquidated-cash will go into BTC and ETH in the ratio 80:20. Interestingly, Pal mentions that this is 98% of his liquid net worth.
Pal’s revelation comes within a day of Guggenheim Partners’ files with the SEC to invest in Bitcoin via the Grayscale Bitcoin Trust (GBTC). Grayscale is a regulated digital assets manager allowing investors to gain exposure to cryptocurrencies through investment vehicles. The Grayscale Bitcoin Trust (GBTC) is its biggest investment product holding over 500K BTC worth over $9 billion of assets under management.
In one of his other tweets, Pal also asks the crypto community to make peace with the upcoming regulations. The inherent nature of cryptocurrencies gives investors freedom from regulatory scrutiny. However, if one expects institutional players to participate in Bitcoin and crypto, regulations are likely to follow them. Thus, crypto investors shall be prepared for the trade-off and rather enjoy the rewards without worrying about taxes.
