The legendary value investor Bill Miller is a significant investor in bitcoin. Bill Miller said, “One consequence of increased geopolitical dislocation might be another very large increase in Bitcoin’s value, as it is increasingly seen as isolated and insulated from the conventional economic system.

Bitcoin’s performance

Bitcoin has had a solid performance in the last one year. It saw an all-time high of $19,343 on December 16, 2017. From January 28, 2017, to December 16, 2017, it gained 2,002%, a tremendous performance within such a small period. Since January 11, 2018, the major cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin, ripple, and ethereum have fallen significantly on the news that South Korea might ban cryptocurrency trading.

Billionaire investor Warren Buffett has a different stance on cryptocurrencies. Recently, he said, “In terms of cryptocurrencies, generally, I can say with almost certainty that they will come to a bad ending.”
