British pound, the oldest getting dumped

If we take a look at the world’s oldest fiat currency, it is British pound. This currency has lost not just a majority of its value but almost all of its value as put by the co-founder of InterchangeHQ and former Global Data/Rider Growth at Uber, Dan Hedl on Twitter:

As shared by Fundstrat Global Advisors’ Thomas Lee last month, there is an important correlation between bitcoin and emerging markets.
