Fundamental analysis: Norweigan oil billionaire to start a new company to invest in Bitcoin
Norwegian billionaire businessman Kjell Inge Rokke has joined Bitcoin supporters and said the top cryptocurrency will become the best hedge against disruption surrounding the finance industry and central banking.
Rokke’s holding company Aker ASA is starting a fresh business named “Seetee AS” to tap into Bitcoin.
“Bitcoin may still go to zero. But it can also become the core of a new monetary architecture,” said Rokke in a shareholder letter. He says it’s not inconceivable that one Bitcoin could one day “be worth millions of dollars.”
“People who know the most about Bitcoin believe its future success is nearly inevitable,” he added.
Bitcoin has continued its outstanding rally in 2021 and hit as much as $57,000 last month, up from $8,000 it reached only a year ago. A number of major companies and investors have backed the cryptocurrency lately including Elon Musk’s Tesla, Mastercard, Square and more.
According to the statement, Seetee is expected to start small with only 500 million kroner ($58 million) in capital. Still, the company said it wants to keep all its liquid investable assets in the cryptocurrency.
The new business will focus on backing Bitcoin, collaborating with leading players in the Bitcoin and crypto community, as well as launching Bitcoin verification businesses and supporting innovation projects and companies.
