Only gold and Bitcoin will protect against what’s to come – Alex Mashinsky’s 2022 survival guide

2022 will be a year of heightened volatility from growing fears of the latest Omicron variant, as well as rising inflation, and the chance of monetary tightening from the Federal Reserve, said Alex Mashinsky, CEO of Celsius Network.

The key is to look at which economic scenario is most likely to play out and act accordingly.

“If there’s a lot of volatility because inflation is out of control [and go into] the double digits then gold and Bitcoin are going to become safe assets. But, if we have single-digit inflation and the Fed is fighting it, then all assets are actually going to lose value because everybody is going to be hurting,” he said. “And, if the opposite…if the Fed decides that inflation is not an issue and they can accommodate longer, then all asset prices are going to go up. So, we have several scenarios here and we have to watch very carefully what happens with each print each month and make decisions based on that.”
