Ark Invest to split '60% Bitcoin, 40% Ether' as confidence in ETH grows 'dramatically'Visit Website

Cathie Wood, the CEO of Ark Investment, has doubled down on her prediction that the price of Bitcoin will grow by tenfold in the next five years, and said the growth of DeFi, NFTs and the Eth2 upgrade has massively increased Ark’s confidence in Ether’s future.

Wood’s prediction would value Bitcoin at almost $500,000 by 2026. She said that Ark Investment’s future exposure to crypto was likely to be around 60% Bitcoin and 40% Ethereum.

Wood made the comments Monday, during a live stream at the SALT Conference in New York.

Her BTC price thesis is based on more companies adding Bitcoin to their balance sheets and institutional investors allocating around 5% of their portfolios towards Bitcoin or other cryptos.

In her view, Bitcoin still remains the default currency of the crypto space with El Salvador deeming it legal tender and other countries of Central America signalling they may follow soon.

But she said Ethereum is becoming more and more attractive as an investment thanks to the explosion in developer activity related to NFTs and DeFi.

“I'm fascinated with what's going on in DeFi, which is collapsing the cost of the infrastructure for financial services in a way that I know that the traditional financial industry does not appreciate right now," she said.

“Our confidence in Ethereum has gone up dramatically as we have seen the beginning of the transition from Proof-of-Work to Proof-of-Stake.”

Ark Investment manages several actively exchange-traded funds with a focus on disruptive innovation. It has significant investments in Coinbase and shares in the Grayscale Bitcoin Trust, Wood has spoken frequently about her enthusiasm for Bitcoin.

Wood said that from past experience she believed no regulator, including new SEC chair Gary Gensler, would want to be blamed for preventing the next big tech breakthrough.

 “I’m very happy he understands crypto and the merits of Bitcoin in particular — he is a regulator though and he is a hardcore regulator.”

Wood believes the SEC’s threats to pursue legal action against Coinbase regarding the launch of a stablecoin yield product highlights that the crypto ecosystem is developing faster than the regulators have been able keep up with.

In her view, Coinbase shouldn’t be especially worried. Wood highlighted how in October 2019 Canada's largest Bitcoin and digital asset fund manager received a favorable ruling from the Ontario Securities Commission (OSC) to offer a publicly-traded Bitcoin fund.
