Nowadays, Bitcoin (BTC) is cited among the most significant assets of the global financial ecosystem. The latest figures reveal that the flagship cryptocurrency is so dynamic that it has managed to rank in the top 10 most strategic financial assets worldwide. In doing so, it has also dethroned some well-known financial behemoths.

Bitcoin, the 10th most important financial asset in the world

Following a particularly thunderous weekend, Bitcoin has risen among the top ten most important assets in the world. The flagship crypto subsequently broke the $40,000 resistance barrier. It is currently trading around $41,730, up 5.40% over the last 24 hours!

This surge underscores the increasing influence of this digital asset in the financial domain. An advance that has catapulted it into the upper echelons of market valuation, notably surpassing some of the most significant financial behemoths of the globe.

Indeed, with a market capitalization of $813 billion, the queen of cryptos has overtaken Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway and its $777.3 billion market capitalization. BTC has also surpassed the automobile manufacturer Tesla and its $759.22 billion market capitalization.

An advance linked to the explosion in Bitcoin’s valuation?

It must be said that this rise in ranking for the queen of cryptos is related to the remarkable explosion in its price over the last few months. With an astounding increase of 150 % since the beginning of the year, BTC’s price rally is the most remarkable financial performance.

While the asset’s market capitalization continues to grow, it seems to position itself as the focus for investors seeking growth and diversification. However, this comes with a certain disparity in performance compared to gold.

Since the beginning of the year, the precious metal has appreciated by 12%. A positive dynamic that testifies to its resilience in the traditional financial market, even though its price has recently eroded significantly. This disparity in performance between traditional commodities such as gold and the digital giant that is Bitcoin is meaningful. It highlights the shift in investor preferences and the growing importance of cryptos and their industry.
