Mike Novogratz: Bitcoin will pass Gold’s $7.5 Trillion market cap


  • Mike Novogratz is the CEO of Galaxy Digital, one of the biggest investment firms in the crypto space.
  • He also shared his views on CBOE suspending Bitcoin futures and Goldman Sachs and Intercontinental Exchange entering the space.

Mike Novogratz, the CEO Galaxy Digital, believes that Bitcoin will pass Gold’s $7.5 Trillion market cap. Speaking with Morgan Creek Digital founder Anthony Pompliano during an interview, Novogratz shared his views on multiple topics.

On Goldman Sachs and Intercontinental Exchange:

“I know Goldman for instance is gearing up around securities tokens. They’re not doing anything yet, but they’re getting really ready and looking at all the questions on – where would you store them? Do you have to build your own custody, or can you use someone else’s custody? How to get them to work.

Listen, the regulatory framework isn’t there yet on security tokens. We’re working really hard on our security token business and we’ve got, I think, some cool things in the hopper.”

On Bitcoin surpassing Gold’s $7.5 Trillion market cap:

“I think the macro case for [Bitcoin] is pretty strong. And so, if you can put a couple percent of your portfolio in, there’s a decent chance it catches wind. Fidelity is just getting set up. Bakkt continues to get delayed a little bit, but it’s not going to be delayed forever. They’re going to be in the game. And there’s lots of other players coming.

Gold’s got an $8 trillion market cap, or a $7.5 trillion market cap. And so, we’re 100x off on that. We’re not going to get there in Bitcoin in the next year or two. But over a 20-year period, could that happen? Easily. Easily. And that’s giving zero optionality to all the other stuff. And so I think it seems like a pretty smart portfolio bet.”

On CBOE suspending Bitcoin futures:

“The reality is, the CME kicked their butts. And these guys have limited resources on what they’re going to spend their focus, and they decided to spend it elsewhere. Finding leverage in Bitcoin is going to get easier as the architecture in the space gets better. You’re already seeing the lending market around Bitcoin went from 10% to like 3%. So once you can borrow you can short. And so now it’s not so hard to short Bitcoin. It used to be almost impossible to short Bitcoin in 2016… It wasn’t great, but it’s not critical.”
