The CEO of financial advisory firm Devere Group believes that 2020 will be a breakout year for bitcoin, fueled by the U.S. presidential election and the weak dollar. Amid political uncertainty and the Fed’s new inflation policy, investors will pile into safe-haven assets not tied to any specific country, such as bitcoin.
2020: Breakout Year for Bitcoin
Devere Group CEO Nigel Green predicted last week that the U.S. presidential election and a weak dollar will drive the price of bitcoin for the rest of 2020. Following the Federal Reserve’s policy shift on inflation, he also warned about investing in the stock market.

Noting that “Bitcoin is already one of the best-performing assets of the year, up around 70% year-to-date,” Green asserted, “We can expect the world’s largest cryptocurrency to be further fuelled for the rest of 2020 by the U.S. presidential election and the weakness of the U.S. dollar, which will serve as high-octane price drivers.” The price of bitcoin stands at $11,613 at the time of writing.
“A U.S. presidential election always stirs uncertainty — but 2020 is seen by many as particularly important as not only will whoever wins be the CEO of the world’s largest economy, they will be in that role as the world economically readjusts following the global fallout of coronavirus,” Green opined. “As uncertainty heightens, investors will pile into safe-haven assets, in particular those not tied to any specific country, such as bitcoin and gold.”
