Former adviser to George Soros said he was not "surprised" by the investments of trader and billionaire Paul Tudor Jones in bitcoin, given the current monetary policy of central banks, reports Cointhelegraph .
Takeshi Fujimaki had close contact with Tudor Jones when he was engaged in trading.
He noted the similarities of mentality between the founder of the hedge fund Tudor Investment and investors such as Soros, Louis Bacon and Julian Robertson.
“They look at the long term and catch a big trend. Joining Paul Tudor to the world of crypto assets means that he takes seriously the problems of inflation in the world and believes that digital currencies flourish in such circumstances, ”said Fujimaki.
It is only natural that the new money that central banks flood the markets will go to cryptocurrency and bitcoin as “digital gold,” he added.
Paul Tudor Jones said last month that he sees trading in bitcoin futures as inflation insurance. He later confirmed that he holds 1-2% of his assets in the first cryptocurrency. Paul Tudor's fortune is estimated at $ 5.1 billion.
