Ray Dalio hold nothing of Bitcoin.

Let’s start with the “Bitcoin destruction”. Dalio speaks in an Interview about Bitcoin and Gold. Here, he says that BTC didn’t take it managed in the past, the functions of money. This was mainly due to the high volatility, the Bitcoin to makes from his eyes – a poor Store of Value. If Bitcoin wanted to take over in the future, so the functions of money and, indeed, the claim of an “Electronic Cash system” I had to get it, especially the Problem of volatility in the handle. On the specific question of whether people should buy Bitcoin, just like Gold, he said:

Cash is trash – Clear words of hedge Fund Manager

Dalio likes to evaluate the potential of Bitcoin now differently than we do, it is likely – that is his right. Interesting is his evaluation to normal Fiat money is, however. Here, Dalio speaks pretty clear words. So he said:

Cash is trash – Fiat money is garbage.

This reasoning is often taken up by Bitcoin enthusiasts, in order to demonstrate that BTC is in compare to the global monetary policies inflationary, and constantly reproduced can be. Dalio suggests in the Interview that governments have the monopoly to print money. From this monopoly, the current “glut of money” and the consequent devaluation of Fiat is a result of money.
Last, but not least, there is the issue of the current market situation. People should enter the market or leave it alone? For this purpose, Dalio said that the people should not be afraid. Rather, a “well-diversified Portfolio to help”.
Part of this could be in the Rest of the Bitcoin.
