The increase of US stimulus package talks serves as a booming situation for Bitcoin and Gold. However, Bitcoin price strikes a new record while Gold declines.

Bitcoin in 2021 so far has brought way too many similar headlines of “new all-time hits”. These many Bitcoin stories have created much interest even for those who are new to it and the entire crypto space. Currently, Bitcoin has rallied past 50,000 dollars to strike a new all-time high of a little above 52,000 dollars in the last few days. Eventually, the biggest cryptocurrency BTC continues to outperform gold which has achieve a low level since last year and has currently seen a sharp fall to about 1,760 dollars.

According to market analysts, gold’s continuous decline comes as a result of an increase in the US treasury yields. Gold may even encounter deeper duress as the US foresees a greater and increasing yield. With a year rise, decade yield set of 1.33% and over 35 basis point achieved this year, more unfortunate news awaits Gold.

US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, in a recent interview, made mention of the $1.9 trillion stimulus package suggested by the U.S. government which she believes will go a long way to bring back the full employment stance of the United State this year.

The US government and the Federal Reserve are continually filling in the system with more money over the past months to uphold the weak economy.

Yellen stated that, when the scale of spending is enlarged, it lowest the risk related to giving very little stimulus. Yellen again believes that more money input will fully bring back the US economy.

BTC and Gold may surge high with much government spending as they are seen as big barriers against inflation due to their overly controlled supplies. However, that seem not to be the case. Many analysts see Bitcoin as a better barrier to inflation than gold, as gold is currently experiencing consistent declines, while bitcoin is going on with what seems to be a never-ending bull run.

Bitcoin (BTC) over Gold

Bitcoin is the largest cryptocurrency by market cap and with no doubt the most striving cryptocurrency has to overpower gold in all ways. At a high-level rate, Bitcoin is the only cryptocurrency that can be looked at with a great appeal to gold. Bitcoin has in fact outperform big players through the years and as such many analysts and even investors have placed it as the standard.

Most importantly, this writing is not in any position of recommending Bitcoin however, the cryptocurrency has been able to gain much attention and interest across the globe. Bitcoin has proven to be secure with its fungibility nature, a limited supply and incredible performance this year. Bitcoin seems to be on the right path to be the gold of the future.
