🚀🚀🚀🚀🚀Why BITCOIN Is 2021’s BEST Investment 🚀🚀🚀🚀🚀?
Bitcoin is not just an alternative asset or investment anymore. It is an alternative Asset Class that stands alone and above many others. Bitcoin is an unique investment asset with compelling differences relative to traditional asset classes. I think in 2021 with the way economics are developing, there is nothing better you can ask for. So What do yall think? Do you think Bitcoin is the best investment in 2021? Do you think Bitcoin is maturing? What do you think is going to happen next year and how are you planning for it? Here is the quote below that reflects the current situation of the State of Bitcoin in its totality as well as reflect the Altcoins immense potential in the coming future, May we see a Bull Run in 2021 -  “What is unique about  bitcoin is that it’s retail-driven. Financial media and the way people  consume investment information is changing, and influencers command more  attention than institutions. And this is happening against a backdrop  of massive generational wealth transfer. As wealth and power move from  older to younger generations, bitcoin is the first asset that will  capitalize on this shift in how we create and consume investment  narratives.” MELTEM DEMIRORS, COINSHARES #money #bitcoin #bitcoinnews #btc2021 #blockchain #cryptocurrency #crypto #moneysmart #financialcoach #financialeducation #financialliteracy #btc #investing
