Brazil: Bitcoin Surpasses Gold Trading

Globally, gold is still an asset with higher volumes than bitcoin. As claimed by the London Bullion Markets Association, the average daily value of gold transfers is roughly US$ 20 billion, whereas bitcoin trades amount to over US$ 1.5 billion.
Such market data as well as recent developments indicate bitcoin is increasingly being perceived as a new safe-haven asset, to which investors can resort in times of crisis. In short, it is a genuine competitor to gold. The big difference is the thousand years track record of gold against just seven years of bitcoin.
