Is Bitcoin the Right Asset To Diversify Your Portfolio?

Is Bitcoin the Right Asset To Diversify Your Portfolio?

With continued global financial uncertainty amidst challenging times, investors are looking for the best way to diversify their portfolios in order to optimize their downside protection and upside risk, The popular trading platform, eToro, thinks it may be the right time for some of their users to continue to diversify their portfolio into alternative asset classes such as Bitcoin

The first point that the analysts of eToro bring up in favor of diversifying into Bitcoin is that currently, traditional financial markets are extremely and uncharacteristically volatile. On  top of that. Bitcoin is colloquially referred to as digital gold, and there are many good reasons that it has started to earn this reputation. Bitcoin gives users the opportunity to hedge against traditional fiat inflation by investing in an asset with a fixed and predetermined distribution quantity.

Even when evaluating Bitcoin from a technological perspective and not as a financial investment, the technology behind it, blockchain, is a fascinating and revolutionary technology that is already changing many types of industries around the world. As the oldest, most reliable, and most valuable iteration of blockchain technology, diversifying your portfolio into Bitcoin can give your portfolio exposure to revolutionary and potentially disruptive technology.


With all of these benefits, it is also very easy for users to purchase Bitcoin. Whether you would like to purchase with a debit or credit card, cash, a bank transfer, or with another cryptocurrency, acquiring Bitcoin is relatively simple. First you have to decide which medium you would like to exchange for Bitcoin, such as cash or a debit card, and then you need to log on to an exchange or a enter a marketplace that will allow you to conduct these trades. You can also purchase Bitcoin offline via a peer-to-peer exchange or by using a Bitcoin ATM.


It is important that you understand all the risks associated with purchasing and holding Bitcoin before you make your trade and understand that although it has a bright future nothing about Bitcoin is truly certain. It is important not get caught up in the hype or FOMO (fear of missing out), as these emotional responses may cloud your judgement and cause you to make an unplanned or unwise trade. You want to try and purchase your Bitcoin during a market downturn, and make sure that you are always using a reliable exchange or means of transaction when conducting any trade,
