George Milling-Stanley, chief gold strategist for State Street Global Advisors, is happy he participated in the "IPO" of gold when Nixon closed the gold window in 1971, but doesn't feel as though he has missed out on bitcoin. Milling-Stanley argues the original use case for bitcoin as a medium of exchange has been proven false and rejects the comparison of gold and bitcoin as a strategic store of value asset.
