- BlackRock suggests an 84.9% BTC allocation, a move that could potentially propel Bitcoin’s value to exceed the combined value of all equities, real estate, and bonds.
- The introduction of a Bitcoin ETF by BlackRock could generate massive demand, bolstering Bitcoin’s price and potentially setting the stage for the largest ETF launch in history.
BlackRock’s Cryptocurrency Crusade: The Potential for Bitcoin’s Domination
In a groundbreaking proposition, global investment giant BlackRock suggests that Bitcoin could soon eclipse all other forms of global wealth, fundamentally redefining the contours of the global financial landscape.
Their research suggests that optimal portfolio composition would see Bitcoin taking the lion’s share at 84.9%, leaving a mere 15.1% for all other assets combined. This bold proposition rests on the assumption of total global wealth currently sitting at around $800 trillion. Should this allocation strategy be implemented universally, Bitcoin’s value would sky-rocket to a staggering $190 million per coin.
If all investors follow BlackRock’s optimal BTC allocation, Bitcoin will be worth more than 5x the total value of all equities, real estate, and bonds.

Driving Factors: ETFs and Bitcoin Halving
In addition to this seismic shift in portfolio composition, the potential introduction of a Bitcoin ETF by BlackRock could add fuel to the fire, potentially driving Bitcoin’s price even higher. A Bitcoin ETF would likely increase daily demand for the digital asset by an incremental $100 million, according to BlackRock’s estimates.
This heightened demand, coupled with the scheduled Bitcoin halving in April 2024, could drastically increase Bitcoin’s market price. Bitcoin halving, a process which slashes miners’ rewards by half, inherently limits Bitcoin’s supply and has traditionally triggered substantial price increases.
BlackRock’s research indicates that the introduction of a Bitcoin ETF could lead to an influx of new investors, further propelling demand for the cryptocurrency. The firm also predicts that a Bitcoin ETF could even break records for initial investment inflows, eclipsing the previous record-holder, the Invesco QQQ ETF, in its first year.
This new category of investment could become a behemoth in its own right, with Bitcoin ETFs potentially exceeding the current $230 billion precious metals ETF market. BlackRock suggests the Bitcoin ETF market could burgeon into a $300 billion category, a trend that would contribute to Bitcoin’s dramatic price increase.
This monumental transformation isn’t merely hypothetical; other financial analysts are similarly bullish about Bitcoin’s potential. Earlier this month, Standard Chartered predicted a positive feedback-loop that could catapult Bitcoin’s price beyond $120,000 in 2023.
BlackRock’s research underscores the immense potential of Bitcoin and the potential for a revolution within the global financial sphere, suggesting a reality where Bitcoin no longer competes with, but instead, eclipses, traditional forms of wealth.
