Miller also said, that the risks of Bitcoin reaching zero are lower than ever. He also predicted a greater institutional investment in cryptomoney.

„The Bitcoin story is very easy, it’s supply and demand. Basically, Bitcoin’s supply is growing about 2.5 percent a year and demand is growing faster than that. Wise words from Bill Miller.

Now is the time to invest in Bitcoin?

Bill Miller added, that Bitcoin has performed well for three, five and ten years.

The director of the Johns Hopkins University Foundation said, „Everyone will want to own at least some Bitcoin. Because of its asymmetric properties.
