Bloomberg's chief commodity strategist reckons that Grayscale Bitcoin Trust is likely to exceed the leading gold tracking ETF by funds in July of this year: SPDR Gold Shares (GLD).
"Gold has diminishing potential for price advances"
Mike McGlone has tweeted that, when compared to Bitcoin, gold has become a symbol of dropping potential for sustained commodity price moves.
He believes that the world's leading gold tracker, SPRD Gold Shares, will be surpassed by Grayscale Bitcoin Trust by total amount of funds by May-July of this year.
On the chart, the total fund assets of GLD have been going flat and are expected to continue to do so. Meanwhile, funds in GBTC keep rising at a fast pace.
McGlone's tweet was also was retweeted by Grayscale chief Michael Sonnenshein.
Another senior Bloomberg analyst, Eric Balchunas, has confirmed this forecast.
In March, U.Today reported that Mike McGlone opined about Bitcoin's high chances of surpassing Amazon by market cap once BTC hits $80,000 per unit.
Bloomberg's chief strategist also believes that, by 2025, Bitcoin is likely to go as high as $100,000. He voiced that opinion in October of last year.
Grayscale absorbs large amounts of crypto quickly
