New Fidelity report flags ‘stark contrast’ between Bitcoin and fiat currencies

Fidelity Investments, an asset manager, predicts that Bitcoin’s future (BTC) may be “in stark contrast to all the rest of the globe”.

Fidelity Digital assets, the crypto subsidiary of Fidelity, has drawn a line between Bitcoin and all other currencies in a recent research article, “The Rising Dollar and Bitcoin”, published Oct. 10.

Report: Bitcoin “doesn’t correspond to another person’s liability”

Fidelity, despite being a regular bull on Bitcoin, continues to publicly affirm its belief in the largest cryptocurrency despite a near year-long bearish market.

Analysts outlined how Bitcoin has changed from the norm as an asset in the report. Particular importance is given to Bitcoin’s supply and fixed issuance in the current high-inflation environment.

They explained that bitcoin could soon be in sharp contrast to the paths taken by the rest of the world, fiat currencies, and the path of increased supply and currency creation and central bank balance sheet expansion.

Although the title of the report refers to the strength of the United States Dollar relative to other currencies around the world, Fidelity highlighted the crisis in British Pound as an event that could not be measured by a Bitcoin standard.

The firm concluded that more monetary debasement might be necessary to reduce the high debt burden among developed economies. Recent events in the United Kingdom have revealed counterparty and liability risk in the system, making monetary interventions and doses liquidity features that are unlikely to disappear any time soon.

It concluded that bitcoin was “comparatively” one of few assets that doesn’t correspond to another person’s liability, has zero counterparty risk and has a supply plan that cannot be altered.

Investors and the market will ultimately decide if these properties become more appealing.

Volatility is a crypto-sector base case

Fidelity’s positive assessment of the current state Bitcoin network diverges from that of its crypto-sector counterparts.

According to the firm’s October roundup, the BTC illiquidity reached a ten year high and network fundamentals were surging.

Cointelegraph reported that in its weekly newsletter “The Week on-Chain”, Glassnode, an on-chain analytics firm, concluded that Bitcoin’s future would likely be marked by volatility.

The Bitcoin market is ripe for volatility with realized and implied volatility falling to historic lows. It concluded that On-chain spending behavior is becoming more pronounced, with spot prices falling to a point where they intersect with the Short Term Holder cost basis.

In a wider context, traders are planning for a sudden exit from Bitcoin’s limited trading range in the coming weeks.
