[LIVE WEBINAR]: How to securely invest in Bitcoin – the new digital gold


Thursday 1st of October 2020

9:00 - 9:45 AM CET

Join us on the 1st of October for the first session of the Sygnum Private Investor Series “How to securely invest in Bitcoin - the new digital gold”, hosted by Sygnum's Chief Client Officer, Martin Burgherr, and Head of Blockchain Engineering, Gavin Pacini.

Bloomberg’s May report “Bitcoin maturation leap” predicted its maturing into a gold-like store of value this year. After Bitcoin’s value more than doubled in mid-August and with an all time high correlation to gold of 70%(1), this trend is gathering momentum.

In this live session, we unpack Bitcoin’s market dynamics, its use as a hedge against inflation, and why just three crypto-currencies cover 80% of global market cap. Most importantly, we answer the questions of why to invest in Bitcoin now, how to do this securely, and what steps to take for diversifying your portfolio.

Key takeaways from this focused 30-minute live webinar include:

  • Understand what’s driving Bitcoin’s short and long-term valuation

  • Analyse Bitcoin’s advantages over gold in the connected digital economy

  • Learn about the seven key myths about Bitcoin investing

  • See the impact of adding just 3% Bitcoin to a traditional investment portfolio

  • Break-down the 3-tier strategy for constructing a diversified digital asset portfolio around Bitcoin
