Billionaire hedge fund manager Paul Tudor Jones has turned more bullish on bitcoin, calling it the best inflation hedge.

“I like bitcoin even more now than I did then. I think we are in the first inning of bitcoin and it’s got a long way to go,” Jones said on CNBC’s “Squawk Box” on Thursday. He first revealed his bitcoin investment in May and he said Thursday he holds a “small single-digit investment” in the cryptocurrency.

The longtime trader believes the unprecedented quantitative easing from the Federal Reserve is setting the stage for inflation to make a grand comeback.

“The reason I recommended bitcoin is because it was one of the menu of inflation trades, like gold, like TIPS breakevens, like copper, like being long yield curve and I came to the conclusion that bitcoin was going to be the best inflation trade,” Jones said.

Bitcoin has fully rebounded from its coronavirus lows in March. The digital coin on Thursday hit its highest level since January 2018 to trade at around $12,900. The strength this week largely came from the news that PayPal will allow its users to buy, hold and sell cryptocurrencies.

The founder and chief investment officer of Tudor Investment Corporation also compared investing in bitcoin to putting money behind some of the biggest tech companies like Apple and Google.

“Bitcoin has this enormous contingence of really, really smart and sophisticated people who believe in it,” Jones said. “It’s like investing with Steve Jobs and Apple or investing in Google early.”

Jones shot to fame after he predicted and profited from the 1987 stock-market crash. He is also the chairman of non-profit JUST Capital, which ranks public U.S. companies based on social and environmental metrics.

  2. When I first heard about crypt currency I was not interested because my mindset was what changed will it bring to the world but when I began to carry out some deep research what it is about I was more than interested because the opportunities it present is very wide and can equally make someone wealthy. I read several post and equally got to know about trading and some exchange that i can equally got this done. I started to buy some Bitcoin in early 2019 because the market outburst in December 2018 was more than enough for me to have a belief that Yes Crypto currency is here to say. I decided to carry out some trading without proper knowledge of how to trade or what trading about and also I lack proper knowledge of how the market trends go because I was thinking that there will always be an upward trend in the market I invested in some coin that actually ran out of the market in 2018 it didn't work out the way I thought it will be, I was so sad I wanted to give you on Bitcoin I stop trading for some months because of the fear of loss, I came across a YouTube video may this year where I saw some individuals showing praise on this trader Mrs Abigail Johnson, so contact her his trading signal are really accurate unlike any signal I ever have seen, her ask me some few questions at first making sure if I was making profits not losing, I put confident on her I bet you her signals are unlike others.

  3. It is estimated that over 40,000 to 300,000 people have made a massive one million dollars in bitcoin investments either through mining, trading or holding for profits pending on the type of broker involved. For every investment to yield earnings a professional broker should be involved. Mrs Anna Tyler is a professional broker who manages, handles, and gives guidance on investments to get good profits
