Role: Chief Investment Officer
For many buyers, Bitcoin might be their first investment of any kind. If these investors are not long-term holders, they may be susceptible to reacting to sudden price movements, whether panic selling or FOMO buying.
The price movements of Bitcoin can be isolated towards specific events, such as the inherent Bitcoin market cycle or a subsidy halving, but the price is also increasingly tied to traditional markets.
The traditional financial markets are complex, and the mortgage crisis highlighted how specific events could trigger changes across the world. What is the role of Bitcoin in this?
In this interview I talk with Travis Kling, Chief Investment Officer at Ikigai, we discuss how the traditional financial markets work, including quantitative easing, fiscal policies, Bitcoin’s relationship with these markets and concerns with tokens and smart contract platforms.
