If you read any of the financial papers you will have seen a lot or reporting on bitcoin, cryptocurrency and other digital currencies. You would have heard that Tesla has purchased $1.5 billion in bitcoin and plans to accept bitcoin as a means of payment to buy a Tesla vehicle.
Kevin O’Leary of Shark Tank fame revealed in February 2021 that he had allocated 3% of his portfolio to bitcoin after Canadian regulators approved bitcoin exchange-traded funds (ETFs). O’Leary explained that bitcoin proponents view the cryptocurrency as digital gold and a hedge against inflation that will appreciate over time.
