Largest insurance company in Europe, Allianz believes that the market bubble in bitcoins will burst sooner or later, and its elimination is only a matter of time. It is reported Bloomberg. As stated head of global Economics and strategy of the company Stefan Hofrichter, the real value of bitcoin is zero.
“Bitcoin is no one’s obligation, in contrast to government bonds, cash or equities,” he said. According to him, cryptocurrency does not generate any income.
Hofrichter noted that, although the same can be said in relation to gold, the precious metal is a generally accepted method of storing wealth over 2.5 thousand years.
Top Manager Allianz believes that bitcoin is in all respects suitable to the definition of a bubble asset. “Bitcoin mania is a classic bubble. However, its collapse will have little impact on “real world”” — he concluded.
