“I trust Bitcoin as a store of value because it has a finite supply. At the same time, the U.S. and other Western countries are printing money now to the end of time. Besides, Bitcoin is something that can be traded globally,” he stated.
Even so, he still doesn’t feel the leading cryptocurrency has any particular purpose other than being used as a store of value. As for gold, the U.S. billionaire claims that the precious metal is worthless, although it does have some industrial use-cases. Here, Sternlich says he disagrees with JP Morgan CEO Jamie Dimon, who recently called Bitcoin worthless. Or Larry Fink, CEO of wealth management giant BlackRock, criticized Bitcoin with the exact words of Dimon.
