“Probably the basis for the focus in 2019 will be in such currencies as bitcoin, Litecoin and some others, because in the world there is a certain geopolitical tension. We see some global macro players start to use bitcoin as an alternative to gold or as a hedge against fluctuations in Fiat currencies and volatility,” he said.
