Raoul Pal: Investors ‘Shifting Allocation to ETH Over BTC
Ether (ETH) recently traded above the $3800 levels for the first time. Former Goldman Sachs executive Raoul Pal said that every investor he has spoken to is moving their allocation from BTC to ETH. Currently, Pal is the CEO of the finance and business video channel Real Vision, which he co-founded in 2014.
On 30 November 2020, Pal revealed that he was about to sell his entire gold holdings and use the money to invest in Bitcoin and Ether. He had said:
I have a sell order in tomorrow to sell all my gold and to scale in to buy BTC and ETH (80/20). I don't own anything else (except some bond calls and some $’s). 98% of my liquid net worth.
Pal took to Twitter again recently, this time to explain why he is much more bullish on Bitcoin at the moment:
Pal also said that when you price anything up in DeFi, NFT, community tokens, or even metaverse worlds, everything is priced in ETH, including designers' time. ETH is "rapidly becoming the currency of the digital world and BTC is the pristine collateral and base layer."
He added that the ETH space "is growing at 100% YoY (vs. 50% YOY for BTC), and it is attracting a massive proportion of the developer talent and applications too.“ Pal noted that he is struggling to not sell all his BTC to move his entire core position to ETH.
To be clear – I’m a massive BTC bull, but I think ETH is the better asset allocation for performance right now.
Interestingly, Peter L. Brandt, one of the world’s most respected classical chartists and commodity traders, agreed with Pal’s opinion. He replied to Pal saying:
Raoul, I see it the same way.
Ethereum Price Is Expected To Reach These Levels
