Analysts opinions and forecasts

According to Max Keiser, Coronavirus pandemic will cause many enthusiasts quit cryptocurrencies and start investing in gold. When there won’t be enough gold, people will choose Bitcoin as an alternative.

When people will finally realize, that they can’t get gold, they will start running towards Bitcoin.

- said Keiser, during his show.

Looking on Bitcoin current price, this may be actually happening right now. Slowly, but surely. It is worth mentioning, that gold has many cons in a comparison with Bitcoin. First of all, it is physically bulky, and it is difficult to pay with it anywhere. The same cannot be said about Bitcoin. It became more and more popular and comfortable. There are many possibilities to pay with it. Moreover, it can be bought anytime.

In turn, the market may run out of gold. Due to Coronavirus pandemic, most of mines remain closed. As a result of that, increasing the supply of gold has significantly hindered. 

We can face a serious crisis on both, gold and toilet paper markets.

- Stacey Herbert added jokingly (co-host of Keiser report program).

Max Keiser has assumed, that millionaires think the same of gold and silver, as unemployed think of toilet paper.
