The phenomenal rise in Bitcoin’s [BTC] price has excited the cryptocurrency market, with many speculating that the end of the prolonged bear market is near. Many proponents in the cryptocurrency space have also voiced their opinion about how positive fluctuations in the world of digital assets have actually enabled them to outperform the best of the S&P market.

In a recent interview on CNBC’s Fast Money, Mark Yusko, Chief Investment Officer at Morgan Creek Digital Capital, spoke about the rippling effects of the cryptocurrency market and the implications of Bitcoin’s current run. Brian Kelly, CNBC’s famous Bitcoin bull, further added that he hoped people would put their money on Bitcoin. To this, Yusko replied,

“Morgan Creek had launched the cryptocurrency challenge back in December and there were not many takers. In a way that was good because BTC is up by more than a 100 percent right now, which is a much better hit rate than that of the S&P market. We will see that in the next 10 years, Bitcoin will outstrip even its current performance and maybe even more.”

Morgan Creek’s CIO further opined that BTC is a great diversifying asset and that it should be in everybody’s cryptocurrency portfolio. He added that at the end of 2018, many analysts thought that 2019 would be the year when BTC would see a lot of bear bounces. However, the world’s largest cryptocurrency managed to beat expectations. Another argument that he laid out for BTC’s longevity was the predicted credit crisis in 2020, a market shift that is expected to cripple mainstream banking systems.

Despite the coin’s present performance, the ‘king coin’ was hit with some negative news recently after the latest Binance research report hinted at ‘disruption with trading pairs,’ as BTC pairs lost 38.9 percent of its market share. The research stated that out of all the trading pairs, USDT saw the largest net inflow, with a total increase slightly below $1 billion.
