The former chairman and president of Duquesne Capital, Druckenmiller, has a net worth of roughly $4.4 billion. His recent comments regarding Bitcoin represent a change in his position on crypto. The billionaire investor earlier has claimed that BTC could never be a medium of exchange, as it has the highest price volatility in the market.
Gold as a haven asset has previously been mentioned by Druckenmiller, which will protect investors from fiat exposure. Because every day, some countries like China are eager to challenge the U.S. dollar's domination. The currency, however, takes up more of its stabilization as a brand.
