ARK Invest 创始人 Cathie Wood 表示，由于监管机构推动该行业的主要公司在其他国家开展业务，美国正在失去对比特币运动的控制。
“It would be nice if the US were leading this movement, but we’re losing it because of our regulatory system,” Wood said last week at the Fortune Most Powerful Next Gen Conference, referring to crypto firms that have begun to shift their operations outside of the US.
That’s largely due to US regulators, Wood said, which have begun to tighten the screws on the crypto industry after the implosion of FTX in late 2022.
She pointed, for instance, to Coinbase, which recently received approval to operate in Bermuda while the firm is being investigated in the US by the Securities and Exchange Commission.
Wood also said the collapse of FTX as well as regional lenders like Silicon Valley Bank and Signature Bank backed up the case for bitcoin.
“The reason it’s adopted is, first of all, many people like the idea of a decentralized, transparent, auditable monetary system. It was born out of the 2008/2009 crisis, when people just lost all trust in financial services,” she said, according to CoinDesk.
“And, very interestingly, it took another two crises within the last year to prove the concept. FTX failed because it was centralized, opaque, and not auditable.”
Wood, for her part, has scooped up large volumes of Coinbase in investment arm, Ark Invest, over the past year. The crypto firm is now the fourth largest holding in Ark’s overall portfolio, with $647 million worth of shares split among its exchange traded funds.
她也一直是比特币的看涨者，并在今年早些时候预测，到 2030 年，这种加密货币可能会反弹至 150 万美元，这意味着比当前价格上涨约 5500%。
比特币周四交易价格为 26,295 美元，自年初以来已反弹 59%。它的价格仍远低于 2021 年底创下的 64,000 美元的历史新高。
