Co-founder of Morgan Creek Digital and noted Bitcoin (BTC) advocate, Anthony Pompliano, disagrees with those who claim that the orange coin is the most volatile asset in the ongoing recession.

'On a relative basis'

Mr. Pompliano noticed that, on a relative basis, the recent rollercoaster-ride of the S&P 500 Index reveals higher volatility than that demonstrated by Bitcoin (BTC). That's because its 9.5% drop is as significant as the 51% free fall of Bitcoin (BTC)

Mr. Pompliano highlighted that, in terms of the whole ongoing recession phase, based on this interpretation, Bitcoin (BTC) is not the most volatile asset.

'Safe Haven' again? 

Unfortunately, Bitcoin (BTC) is far from being a hedge against market turbulence. Although, as U.Today previously reported, that kind of a last resort simply can't be found in this dramatic March 2020.
