Guggenheim CIO Says Bitcoin ‘Should Be Worth’ $400,000

Guggenheim Partners Chief Investment Officer Scott Minerd shocked Bloomberg TV hosts Wednesday afternoon when he said his firm’s fundamental analysis shows bitcoin should be worth $400,000.

  • “Our fundamental work shows that bitcoin should be worth around $400,000,” said Minerd. “Whoa!” responded one of the hosts.

  • That sky-high price target is based on two things, according to Minerd: the asset’s scarcity and its relative value to gold as a percentage of gross domestic product.

  • “Bitcoin has a lot of the attributes of gold and at the same time has an unusual value in terms of transactions,” Minerd told Bloomberg TV.

  • Guggenheim made the decision to start allocating to bitcoin when the leading cryptocurrency was trading around $10,000, Minerd said.

  • Minerd said allocating to bitcoin, given its current price above $20,000, is “a little more challenging.”

  • Guggenheim Partners manages more than $230 billion worth of assets.
