The famous hedge-fund investor, in a recent research note, cited the unprecedented measures of money printing and stimulating the economy by the Federal Reserve and the US government in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic as key reasons behind his fresh interest in the most famous cryptocurrency in the world.
"The best profit maximization strategy is to own the fastest horse," Jones said in a note on market prospects.
Jones says his investment is reminiscent of gold in the 1970s.
Last year, Jones said the mix of a dovish Fed and increased geopolitical tensions created a favorable atmosphere for buying gold and stocks, which proved to be a winning strategy. In an interview with Bloomberg last June, Jones said that if gold "reaches 1,400, then it will fly fast enough to 1,700", commenting on the prospect of a sharp rise in the price of the precious metal.
The price of the gold contract, delivered in June, closed on Thursday at $ 1,725.80 per ounce, having gained 13.4% so far in 2020 and 34.4% in the last 12 months.
Jones will focus on placing bets in favor of bitcoin in the CME Group's futures market, where the June delivery bitcoin contract reached a high of $ 10,155, according to FactSet. Bitcoin futures on the basis of the most active contract have strengthened by almost 38% since the beginning of the year to date and almost 70% in the last 12 months, significantly outperforming gold.
