Bloomberg has revealed an increasingly pro-Bitcoin stance in its latest publications. Earlier this month, he favored Bitcoin’s price increases over those of altcoins such as Ether (ETH), which he described as “more speculative.

On the subject of the precious metal, with which Bitcoin still correlates, McGlone said on Monday that the rise will continue to have the advantage.
“Above previous highs of about $1,900 an ounce in mid-August, the market for gold bullion seems to be in its infancy, but it is likely to consolidate gains for a while,” said part of another tweet.
As Cointelegraph reported, the weakness of the U.S. dollar seems to be fuelling the success of safe haven stocks, something that shows no signs of abating as the dollar’s currency index hits a two-year low.
