Pomp Investments founder Anthony Pompliano discussed Bitcoin's significant rise in Wall Street's investment landscape in a recent interview with CNBC. Pompliano highlighted the growing interest in Bitcoin, especially following the launch of the Spot Bitcoin ETF, which achieved notable success just a month after its launch.
“Demand for Bitcoin has Exceeded the Supply”
Despite swings in the price of Bitcoin, which recently surpassed $50,000, Pompliano said there is overwhelming support for the cryptocurrency in institutional circles. Pompliano pointed out that never before in history has a mutual fund accumulated $3 billion in assets under management (AUM) within the first 30 days of a new ETF launch, and that this feat was achieved by both BlackRock and Fidelity.
Pompliano stated that the demand for Bitcoin far exceeds the daily supply, that funds experience a net inflow of approximately $500 million per day, but only 900 Bitcoins are produced per day.
The transformative impact of Bitcoin ETFs on traditional investment strategies was also discussed in the interview. These ETFs have absorbed a significant portion of Bitcoin's tradable supply, and about 5% of all tradable Bitcoin is now held in these funds, Pompliano said.
Pompliano also discussed the evolving investment landscape, with major firms such as Fidelity considering a Bitcoin allocation in their portfolios. He argued that including Bitcoin could improve portfolio performance, a trend likely to gain momentum as more institutions realize its potential.
Addressing concerns about Bitcoin's future path, Pompliano remained positive and predicted significant growth driven by increased demand and decreasing supply due to Bitcoin's halving mechanism.
While Pompliano acknowledged potential challenges such as market volatility and regulatory uncertainty, he said he remains confident in Bitcoin's ability to outperform traditional assets over the long term. Pompliano attributed this optimism to BTC's resilience against economic uncertainties and its potential to provide a hedge against inflation.
