- Gemini exchange CEO, Tyler Winklevoss, believes Bitcoin will benefit from the US Federal Reserve pumping fiat money.
- US printing money will inflate the stock market, leaving Bitcoin as a viable alternative.
Tyler Winklevoss, the CEO of the Gemini exchange, has said that the US Federal Reserve pumping fiat money into the economy is good for Bitcoin’s prices. In a recent tweet, he said that “the Fed continues to set the stage for bitcoin’s next bull run.” The tweet included a link to an article about the Fed’s discussions of further stimulus spending.
As a result of the economic fallout caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the US govt has strengthened its monetary policies. This included a $2 trillion stimulus package, which, in part, handed out free money to US citizens, depending on income levels.
As a borderless, decentralized digital asset, Bitcoin holds as a potential hedge to mainstream markets and fiat currencies. It has a maximum supply of 21 million coins, protecting the asset against value dilution. Winklevoss said that the Fed printing money will inflate the stock market, leaving Bitcoin as an alternative.
