Amid unstable global financial conditions, Bitcoin continues its path as a juicy-looking hedge asset, based on its gains comparative to gold.

Sitting at a press time price of $1,717 per ounce, gold has risen approximately 12% from the start of 2020, TradingView data showed. In the same time frame, Bitcoin boasts a 30% gain, at a value of $9,290 at press time.

Coronavirus fears and prevention measures sent crypto and mainstream markets into a downward spiral. Bitcoin hit its most recent low on March 13, while traditional markets eventually lagged behind, posting a less dramatic recovery.

An increasing number of mainstream personalities have entered the crypto space in recent days, including hedge fund manager Paul Tudor Jones.

Morgan Creek Digital co-founder and partner, Anthony Pompliano, mentioned Bitcoin’s 2020 gains compared to gold in a May 13 tweet.

“I won’t hold my breath for the media to write articles stating ‘Bitcoin proving to be the best safe haven asset in the economic crisis,'” Pomp said, adding, “But even their silence can’t change the truth.” Pomplinao has long argued Bitcoin as a non-correlated hedge asset.
