According to Raoul Pal (former director of Goldman Sachs’ hedge fund sales department), in the past few months, all kinds of analysts – from Bitcoin admirers to Wall Street professionals – have delineated a future recession.


Is it worth buying Bitcoin?

The general notion of a future recession has led many investors to the question: What should they buy to insure their risks?

According to one well-known economist and former Wall Streeter, Bitcoin is one of the leading hedging tools because it can play a major role in a future financial system that may not be based on Fiat, as it is today.

Raoul Pal has reiterated his views in a recent Twitter feed, promoting cryptocurrencies as a way out of a potential recession.

According to Pal, most of the world's assets – from securities to commodities (except for Bitcoin) – are placed into the volatile territory.

Pal is currently predicting a potential yield collapse of up to -4% for the US, which will be a complete shift in the finances paradigm. Given the rate cuts in Europe and Japan, this is possible.

Although Pal wrote that these charts might be just a coincidence, the reality is that a recession is about to come. This, he said, should cause investors to buy bonds, dollars, diamonds and, of course, Bitcoin.
