PayPal创始人Peter Thiel大笔押注比特币

2017年以来,比特币价格仿佛坐上了过山车,一路从年初的几千美元攀升到年末的近2万美元。而随着比特币期货的出现,这种加密货币更是成为了投资市场的"香饽饽",吸引了不少投资者的注意。

这其中就包括PayPal公司联合创始人Peter Thiel。据《华尔街日报》报道,Peter Thiel早先曾通过其创立的Founders Fund大笔买入了价值2000万美元的比特币,而如今这笔投资已经价值数亿美元。

Peter Thiel可以说是硅谷一位标志性的企业家。除早先创立了支付巨头PayPal外,Peter Thiel的Founders Fund还累计对外投资30亿美元,其中不乏多家知名科技创企,比如Stripe、Facebook、Lyft、Affirm和Airbnb等等。Founders Fund表示其目标是为投资者赚取更多的收益,而但就从这次比特币投资而言,他们的承诺可谓是名副其实了。

Peter Thiel, via his Founders Fund, has apparently made an sizable bet on the rising value of Bitcoin. According to a report in WSJ, Thiel gambled on BTC some time ago buying up to $20 million worth of the cryptocurrency. That investment has since grown to “hundreds of millions of dollars.” The report calls it a “Moonshot” but in reality a $20 million gamble for the billionaire is more like pocket change. In this case, Thiel has gotten lucky. And why not?

The price of Bitcoin has been on a roller coaster ride rising from less than a thousand dollars at the beginning of 2017 to about $20,000 at one point several weeks back. Each bullish rise has been met with a retrenchment – only to scale higher. Bitcoin has become a legitimate investment as futures now trade on both the CBOE and CME. ETFs are rushing to be set up to provide more retail access.

Thiel, an iconoclastic Silicon Valley entrepreneur, made his money as a cofounder of Fintech senior citizen PayPal. Founders Fund has investments totaling around $3 billion. The Founders Fund portfolio boasts a good number of prominent tech names like Stripe, Facebook, Lyft, Affirm, Airbnb and more. The Founders Fund manifesto states their intent to earn outstanding returns for their investors. They have certainly done that with their Bitcoin purchase.
