Financiers point out that the precious metal has developed its high stock-to-flow ratio for millennia. Predicting that Bitcoin is likely to get a similar ratio in May next year after cutting miners’ rewards in half.
Manuel Andersch, Senior Currency Analyst at Bayerische Landesbank, calls this figure «rigidity of the asset». Since during the period when gold was used as money, this ratio provided the best transfer of value over time..
The report concludes by examining the potential for Bitcoin’s price and predicting a sharp jump.
