Bitcoin is one of the best performing financial assets of the year, with more than 278% increase . A performance that places it very far ahead of gold , which shows an increase of nearly 29% over the last 12 months:

“For us, I don’t think it’s late. On the contrary, it is the first step. You are about to see this wave of early adoption by the institutional community. I would like our investors to get involved before this happens on a large scale, ”he said.
