During a recent conversation on CNBC, billionaire investor Anthony Pompliano was questioned about the unpredictable characteristic of Bitcoins, and he responded by stating that analysts, investors and market as a whole is viewing bitcoin volatility in the incorrect manner. “Volatility is neither good nor evil, is it?” he was cited as having said.
According to cryptoslate.com, “volatility is only negative when it works against investors, therefore if you are long in an asset and it declines, volatility is not something you enjoy; if you are long in an asset and price goes up, volatility is something you do want,” they said.
