    I would be long Bitcoin, and neutral to skeptical of just about everything else at this point with a few possible exceptions. There will be one online equivalent to gold, and the one you'd bet on would be the biggest.

    While I'm skeptical of most [cryptocurrencies], I do think that people are underestimating Bitcoin. It's like a reserve form of money, it's like gold, and it's just a store of value. You don't actually need to use it to make payment.

    There's about $70 billion worth of Bitcoin in the world. There's $9 trillion worth of gold. If Bitcoin ends up being the cyber equivalent of gold, it has a great potential.
