CNBC’s Brian Kelly says he believes central bank digital currencies will ultimately boost Bitcoin and the crypto markets.
In a new episode of Fast Money, the chief executive officer of digital currency investment firm BKCM says the stark contrast between Bitcoin’s fixed supply and seemingly endless money printing from governments will only become more magnified as fiat currencies around the world go digital.
“In terms of the digital euro or digital yuan or digital dollar, it’s not actually competition for Bitcoin, because Bitcoin’s core value proposition is that it has a fixed supply. I can’t imagine the ECB (European Central Bank) issuing a digital currency that is going to have a fixed supply. In fact, I would think it would make it a lot easier for them to digitally print more money. I actually think those are more of a risk for fiat currency holders and it highlights why Bitcoin is a digital gold-like product.”
As for where the BTC price is heading, Kelly says he won’t put a number on it, but believes the top cryptocurrency’s post-halving rally is not over yet.
