Founder of and a major crypto analyst on Trading View, Jacob Canfield, has taken to Twitter to share that the industrial era and the era of gold are coming to an end.

Gold is passing its riches to the new store of value – Bitcoin, Canfield says.

“Gold loses value and market share to Bitcoin”

Jacob Canfield has tweeted that what can be seen around now is the death of the industrial era and the digital era taking over.

Meanwhile, he adds, the major store of value of the past epochs (gold) is losing its value and market share to the new store of value – Bitcoin, which is often referred to as “digital gold”.

He adds that even though Bitcoin’s market cap value is only $356 billion so far (and gold’s is $9 trillion), the process of overtaking is already underway.

Canfield has posted a chart, showing his thoughts of Bitcoin’s further fate. The yellow star shows the process has just started before Bitcoin could become “full global money”.

At press-time, Bitcoin’s market capitalization totals $361,755,362,505, as per CoinMarkerCap.
