'This Year, the Narrative is Bitcoin, Bitcoin, Bitcoin': Meltem Demirors

2mon ago

The Bitcoin (BTC) price has more than doubled since the beginning of this year, and it is currently trading at $8,108.91 according to CryptoCompare data.

Notably, the world’s most dominant cryptocurrency has surged by as much as 30% in the past week.

Commenting on the crypto market rally, during a recent interview with CNBC’s Fast Money, Meltem Demirors, the Chief Strategy Officer (CSO) at CoinShares, a digital assets treasury management firm, said that there’s “a lot of great progress being made.”

Demirors, a mathematical economics graduate from Rice University, believes that this year, “the narrative is Bitcoin” whereas last year it was about “speculative new tokens and protocols.”

According to Demirors:

[It’s] good to see a return to Bitcoin and everyone is feeling good…and we’re seeing signs of life...there’s a lot of confidence right now.

She pointed out that critics had been arguing that Bitcoin transactions take too long to process and that the cryptocurrency is not scalable. In order to address this issues, several different blockchain projects were launched, however Demirors thinks it’s “really hard” to effectively resolve all the problems associated with the Bitcoin network.

She also mentioned:

What we saw in the meantime, [as other projects experimented with various new potential use cases for cryptos], the institutions that had spent the last two or three years learning about Bitcoin, started to understand it, and started to actually build platforms and products that [work with] Bitcoin directly…[Currently,] Bitcoin is the [digital] asset people know best, [and] it has the biggest brand name.

Expressing views similar to most crypto analysts, Demirors confirmed that Bitcoin has the most secure cryptocurrency network out of all other cryptocurrencies. She pointed out that Microsoft, which had been experimenting with the Ethereum network, is now in the process of implementing decentralized identity management solution on top of the Bitcoin blockchain.

Demirors believes there’s currently a lot of global macroeconomic-related unrest and there’s also a lot of volatility in the markets. She added:

Times have changed, this is not 2018. The end of 2018 was rough in capital markets. Now we’re seeing a lot of volatility in tech stocks. So, Bitcoin is starting to look maybe not so crazy to investors.

Per the CoinShares CSO, financial privacy-related crypto technology is becoming increasingly popular. This, as new regulations will be introduced, in order to ensure that people’s data is not being used by third parties without their approval.

Responding to a question about bitcoin’s price movements, Demirors said that “the more people that decide to hold the [pseudonymous cryptocurrency,] the better it is for the price.” She also thinks Square’s Cash app is one of the main ways institutional investors gain exposure to Bitcoin.

However, she acknowledged that Bitcoin is still better suited for retail consumers and not so much yet for institutions.
