According to him, Bitcoin’s volatility has reduced significantly over the past few months. However, he advises people to invest less in Bitcoin than they would invest in JPMorgan stock.

Novogratz considers Bitcoin a much better bet than JPMorgan stock, especially when the crypto asset’s volatility is adjusted. The Bitcoin maximalist made this known after the CNBC host suggested the need for people to understand the risks associated with cryptocurrencies before delving into the emerging market.

Novogratz Remains Bullish on Bitcoin

The Galaxy Digital CEO is highly bullish on Bitcoin and has always made optimistic predictions for the top asset class. He once predicted that Bitcoin would surge to $500K in 2024.

Following the massive plunge of crypto prices due to the FTX collapse and the Federal Reserve’s efforts to mitigate rising inflation, Novogratz said he would be happy to see Bitcoin end the year around $30K.

In April, Novogratz predicted that the United States would soon face a dramatic economic downturn, which would help strengthen Bitcoin’s investment case.

He also asserted that the aggressive Fed’s tightening and the collapse of Silicon Valley Bank highlighted Bitcoin’s use case as the perfect alternative to the existing fiat system.
