In 2019, he already predicted a rise in the price of BTC. Invite economic players to a strategic meeting on bitcoin, support companies specializing in cryptocurrencies such as Elwood Capital and FTX, issue loans in bitcoins, or even plan the buyback of cryptocurrencies from bankrupt cryptocurrency loan platforms such as Celsius Network… were part of his past.

In an article published on December 12, Reuters revealed that Goldman Sachs ” expects gold, with its real demand drivers, to outperform the highly volatile bitcoin in the long run “.
