Is Bitcoin a Safe Haven? A Note from CZ | Binance Blog

There are people who are relatively new to crypto….When the stock market crashes hard, more people will feel the cash crunch to a higher degree and, hence, a stronger conviction to sell crypto in the short term as well….So there’s increased demand or pressure of people wanting to sell their investments (stocks or crypto) into cash, again in the short term.  In theory, gold prices should go up, but that didn’t happen either….Due to inefficiencies in fiat transfers, it takes time for people to deposit money into crypto exchanges to buy bitcoin….With crypto, it’s different….But this time, people have more choices.
