On 14 October, finews.asia reported that Daryl Ho, DBS investment strategist, talked about the positive things about Bitcoin and said that we should not judge Bitcoin from the point of view of volatility.
“I think Bitcoin is still unique whether the price changes or not. If we just look purely on a price basis, you will see a lot of volatility and that doesn’t inform you a lot about what benefits it brings,” Ho said.
Further, Ho talked about the decentralized nature of Bitcoin which allows people to trade & use for fund transactions without any need for centralized third-party protocol.
He also distinguished the traditional market assets, which are different from the crypto market. He noted that we can trade bitcoin or cryptocurrencies anytime we need 24×7, which is not the usual case in traditional centralized assets.
“But the Bitcoin market was open 24/7. So there was an avenue for you to raise cash and liquidity, if necessary.”
