Answering the question, Novogratz did not choose a clear side. Instead, he said he believes both Bitcoin and gold will win amid rising inflation only if the financial authorities step back on interest rates.
“In the long run, gold will win and Bitcoin will win if central banks and governments go back to normal.”
According to Novogratz, government officials in the US are already pressuring to stop the rate hike due to its impact on various assets such as cryptos.
