Cathie Wood’s Confidence in Grayscale and Bitcoin
Cathie Wood expressed her confidence in Grayscale back in Nov. 2022 in a Bloomberg Television and Radio interview. “We know that the Grayscale Investment trusts are the most valuable part of that company right now, and they’re cash cows,” Wood said. “We think they’re going to try and hold onto that if nothing else.”
Ark Invest has been a perpetual bullish investor of bitcoin. In the Bloomberg interview, Wood insisted that the price of bitcoin will reach $1 million by 2030.
