During a recent appearance on William Green's "We Study Billionaires" podcast, hedge fund legend Ray Dalio expressed his thoughts on the hype surrounding cryptocurrencies, specifically Bitcoin.

The uber-succesful investor stated that he believes there is a distinction between blockchain technology and digital currencies. While the former is an excellent technology, the latter is not a good bet for investors, according to the billionaire. 

Dalio commented that digital currencies do not replicate anything, which makes them an ineffective store of wealth. 

He also pointed out that Bitcoin's total value is a fraction of Microsoft's stock. Hence, in Dalio's view, it is a preoccupation by people that is disproportionate to its true reality.

Dalio is convinced that in time, there will be better digital currencies, such as those that provide the equivalent of inflation and buying power. He noted that most currencies are debt instruments that offer poor returns relative to inflation, but a good digital currency is yet to be created.
