Bitcoin: The New Asset Class

Exceptional returns; 123% in 2016 and strong CAGR predictions; 45% annually for the next 9 years, Bitcoin instantly diversifies investment portfolios and SMSFs.

What is Bitcoin?

According to the Reserve Bank of Australia, Bitcoin is a “digital representation of value that may be accepted by some parties as a means of payment and can be transferred, stored or traded electronically.”


Why Bitcoin?

History has proven fiat currencies decline in value due to their expanding monetary bases: “Over the past 20 years the United States dollar has lost 53% of its value, the British Pound 47%, the Euro 40% and the Australian dollar has lost 64%.”

Imagine the alternative: $21 million exists in the world. There is a global, public ledger. You own $2. You spend $2. You update your ledger. Everyone updates their ledger. This is the distributed system; the model at the heart of Bitcoin's Blockchain.

Ongoing Geo-Political instability (and the resulting debasement of fiat backed currency) sends Bitcoin surging, making it the ultimate investment for Superannuation. 


The Australian Government has classified Bitcoin as an “asset” and legislation now allows investment in Self-Managed Super Funds (SMSFs).

To facilitate this process, Bitcoin Trader has compiled the Bitcoin Market Research Report 2017; the first ever aggregation of international financial analysis into Bitcoin.


Abstract from the Bitcoin Market Research Report 2017:

“With exceptional returns (123% in 2016), strong CAGR predictions (45% year on year for the next 9 years) and low correlation across standard asset classes, Bitcoin instantly diversifies investment portfolios whilst increasing the funds standard return (1.5-7%).

Whilst Geo-political crisis drive fiat currencies down, Bitcoin continues to rise. Yet security, volatility, scalability and legislation are still perceived as risks; thus, adoption levels are relatively small in comparison to the significant value proposition.

Chinese dominance in mining and exchange volume has led to further speculation around Bitcoin’s future. Conversely, since China has become the Global Economic Leader, its investment only serves to secure Bitcoin’s stability, decrease volatility and encourage flexible legislation globally.

Since the Fourth Industrial Revolution the internet has massively expanded the global economy (6.6-fold growth from $US11 trillion to $US73 trillion since 1980) and cross-border data flows now generate more economic value than traditional flows of traded goods. A digital currency in Bitcoin is a natural market evolution.

Blockchain technology is the foundation of the digital economy; Bitcoin is the new system of exchange. Considering $10,000 of Bitcoin in 2011 is worth $30 million today, current predictions of a 100x return in the next 10 years could be considered conservative.”
