May 8: Are you betting on the fastest horse?

What a day to usher into the weekend. BTC traded past $10k for a bit and now over 7% higher in the past 24 hours. The clear catalyst was Paul Tudor Jones announcing that his $22 billion fund will be investing in BTC a low single digit % of assets because it's a great hedge against a "great monetary inflation". It also reminded him of gold in the 70s, and I thought this was the highlight "At the end of the day, the best profit-maximizing strategy is to own the fastest horse. Just own the best performer and not get wed to an intellectual side that might leave you weeping in the performance dust because you thought you were smarter than the market. If I am forced to forecast, my bet is it will be Bitcoin.” It is also important to note this will largely remove much career risk of any hedge fund manager who wants to allocate into BTC today. Next wave of institutional buyers coming soon? Is that why CME listed futures open interest hit a record high yesterday?
