The newly appointed Biden-administration is just giving an aggressive push to Bitcoin (BTC) with the move of boosting America’s economic activity. While the Democrats are already working on a $1.9 trillion fiscal stimulus bill a report from Washington Post suggests that lawmakers are already discussing another $3 trillion stimulus package.
Additional $3 Trillion Stimulus?
Owing to the slowdown in the economic activity due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Federal Reserve is on a money printing rampage. Already trillions of dollars have been pumped into the economy with more coming soon. Well, this massive liquidity pump is nothing but good news for Bitcoin investors!
The fears of massive inflation and currency devaluation are now pushing institutional and corporates closed to Bitcoin (BTC) than ever before. Here’s what Bitcoin evangelist and Morgan Creek Digital founder – Anthony Pompliano – has to say.
A few elected officials are now proposing an additional $3 trillion stimulus package on top of the $1.9 trillion COVID package.
These maniacs are going to print so much money that we're literally going to lose count.
How the hell can you not be bullish on bitcoin right now?!?

In the latest interview with CNBC’s Closing Bell, U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen once again called Bitcoin a “highly speculative” asset and a “vehicle for illicit transactions”. Well, it has been a common judgment on Bitcoin (BTC) by all lawmakers worldwide for the past few years. Is it that fiat has been never used for criminal activities before? Here’s what Rich Dad author Robert Kiyosaki has to say.
Sec Treasury Yellen just said on CNBC Bitcoin is used in criminal activity. Give me a break. And the US dollar isn’t. Who can believe these Academic Elites? Do they think we are that naive? Definitely buy more gold, silver, Bitcoin.

Corporates and Financial Giants Are Bullish on Bitcoin (BTC)
While the lawmakers continue to rant about Bitcoin (BTC), looks like big corporates and financial giants truly understand the downside of money printing and the risks of inflation. Thus, to protect their capital they are all moving to Bitcoin (BTC) as the potential hedge asset class.
Last week, Tesla announced its $1.5 billion worth of Bitcoin purchase exposing nearly 8% of its cash reserves to the world’s largest cryptocurrency. Although, Tesla CEO Elon Musk has clarified that he’s not much of a fan of Bitcoin. But he adds that just at the time when the fiat currency has a negative interest rate, it is a prudent option to park the excess money into fastly evolving assets like Bitcoin.
The world’s largest asset manager BlackRock – managing over $8 trillion in assets under management – announced its exposure to Bitcoin (BTC). BlackRock managing director Ried Ricker had the same thing to say about the decision to invest in Bitcoin. Speaking to CNBC, he said:
“We’re holding a lot more cash than we’ve held historically. “It’s because duration doesn’t work, interest rates don’t work as a hedge and so diversifying into other assets makes some sense. Holding some portion of what you hold in cash in things like crypto seems to make some sense to me, but I wouldn’t espouse a certain allocation or target holding.”
Over the last few months, some of the biggest financial giants have announced their entry into Bitcoin (BTC). Well, we would rather say thanks to the central banks for their money-printing mania which has forced big players to flush their cash in BTC and understand its true potential.
We are still not late to the Bitcoin game. Bitcoin looks strong above $50,000 and its parabolic advance, as per technical indicators, suggests the next rally to $240,000. The open interest in Bitcoin Futures and other technical indicators are also at a record high.
