With just over 12 years of history, Bitcoin has become increasingly popular among retail investors and mainstream institutional investors. Since 2020, Bitcoin price has surged over 500%, making it one of the best performing assets globally. Crypto bulls said that bitcoin is seen as a hedge against inflation, similar to gold. At the current price of close to USD60,000, what are the opportunities and risks we are facing? How should we look at Bitcoin from the institutional perspective?
This event aims to provide our alumni with an in-depth analysis of Bitcoin as an investment. Speakers from the crypto exchange, the asset manager and the law firm will share their insights on the eco-system, the opportunities and the risks associated with the Bitcoin investment.
