Andrew Rosenberger, CFA, Senior Investment Manager

On this week’s podcast (recorded May 30, 2017), Andy discusses how Bitcoin isn’t necessarily something that we consider a long-term investable asset for our client portfolios, but it’s certainly been an attention grabber as of late.

Quick hits:

  • After crossing the $2,200 per bitcoin mark on Monday, I had no less than 3 separate conversations after an article was released on how if you had purchased $100 dollars worth of bitcoin in 2010, it would be worth $72.9 million dollars today.
  • Bitcoin is a digital currency, not backed by any central government or entity, and it relies on a community of supporters to maintain the infrastructure.
  • The underlying technology behind bitcoin is getting the attention of many major players including banks, credit card companies, and technology giants.
