81% of Fund Managers Still Think BTC Is a Bubble: Bank of America Survey

Over four in five (81%) of fund managers believe BTC is in a bubble, according to a recent survey published by Bank of America.

In addition, the survey found that being long commodities are now the “most crowded trade,” with long BTC coming in second place. Commodities are raw products like oil, gold, silver, and lumber. Precious metals are thought to be an effective hedge against inflation, which has become a growing fear of late.

The bank surveyed a total of 224 fund managers with over $650 billion in assets under management.

However, not everyone is convinced by the collective skepticism on show.

This survey demonstrates that a lack of understanding of what problems BTC solves is still prevalent in certain sectors – it is still seen as “just another asset to trade by some at this time,” Jason Deane, analyst at Quantum Economics, told Decrypt.

He added that “the fundamentals support the position that BTC is poised for significant price appreciation in the future.”

BTC remains a volatile bet

The Bank of America survey comes amidst a rollercoaster ride for BTC’s price.

Currently priced at $40,000, BTC has increased by 20% during the last week but has also seen a 14% decline over the last month. At its lowest point in the last 30 days, BTC fell to a price of $31,000.

Beyond BTC’s price volatility, the leading cryptocurrency has come under more thorough regulatory scrutiny too.

Just yesterday, an IRS Cyber Crimes Unit member, Chris Janczewski, told Decrypt that the agency is closely watching over-the-counter chats on Telegram as a potential means for criminals to move dirty funds.

Last week, the International Monetary Fund  poured cold water on El Salvador’s legal tender project, saying the move raises “a number of macroeconomic, financial and legal issues.”

It’s not all been bad news for the top crypto, though.

Last weekend, Tesla CEO Elon Musk said Tesla would begin accepting BTC as payment once again if miners commit to using 50% clean energy. His announcement is the latest in a long line of statements about the current state of the sector. Last month, when Tesla stopped accepting BTC, Elon Musk’s tweets were widely credited with contributing to BTC’s price collapse.
