Stanley Druckenmiller sees Bitcoin and gold as secure stores of value, predicts Ethereum’s dominance

In recent discussions with Paul Tudor Jones, Stanley Druckenmiller, the founder of Duquesne Capital Management, has shown an optimistic outlook toward Bitcoin‘s potential as a secure store of value. He equated Bitcoin and gold, despite currently only owning the latter. This comes after his past ownership and subsequent liquidation of Bitcoin due to restrictions imposed by central banks.

Druckenmiller also recognized the potential of blockchain technology, predicting that a ledger-based system could eventually replace the U.S. dollar as the global reserve currency. He further compared Ethereum to “Myspace before Facebook (NASDAQ:META),” suggesting that Ethereum might eventually dominate over Bitcoin.

Despite his bullish stance on Bitcoin, it is worth noting that the cryptocurrency has faced criticism from other prominent figures such as Warren Buffet and Charlie Munger, who have referred to it as “rat poison.”

Druckenmiller’s firm has boasted an average annual return of 30% from 1981 to 2010. At the time of reporting, Bitcoin was valued at $34,237.44.
