Charlie Morris, chairman of ByteTree, joined Teana Baker-Taylor for this week’s onchain reaction. They discussed bitcoin and the correlations between interest rates and bond yields.
(49:50) “Basically bitcoin spent a lot of time going up and some time going down and then some time consolidating. And the time it’s been going down has been the same time when global central balance sheets have also been contracting mainly 2014 and 2018. It’s as clear as mustard.”
