Alex Thorn, head of firmwide research at Galaxy Digital, says Bitcoin is inevitable. That’s despite a slide of nearly 40% from its all-time-high price. Meanwhile, based on his own analysis of the issues in play, Thorn sees regulation eventually providing a tailwind to digital assets generally. In conversation with Real Vision’s Ash Bennington, Thorn also addresses interesting developments for Ethereum and other “altcoin” communities. Ethereum, he notes, faces an “innovator’s dilemma”: solving its scalability problem faster than its vast number of competitors can establish robust user networks. Ethereum’s future is less certain. But Bitcoin, according to Thorn, is here for the duration. Recorded on February 16, 2021.
