UK-based financial consultancy deVere Group points out that his expected victory in the ongoing Tory leadership race could bode well for Bitcoin investors.

Thriving in chaos

Johnson is hell-bent on succeeding where Theresa May failed: aggressively pushing the Brexit agenda. His tough talk creates a cloud of uncertainty for both domestic and foreign investors who are mulling over removing their funds from the UK as the country remains entangled in the Brexit crisis.

However, according to deVere Group, Bitcoin will thrive during this chaos given that many investors will use it as a hedge asset if (or when) the sterling takes a hit.

One such way that many are looking to diversify their portfolios and hedge against legitimate risks posed by Brexit is by investing in crypto assets, such as Bitcoin.

It’s worth mentioning that the UK is one of the largest cryptocurrency markets. According to the survey, which was reported on by U.Today back in 2018, 30 percent of Londoners are willing to invest in Bitcoin.
