    Robinhood probably profited from traders ‘protesting with Dogecoin’

    The exchange apparently became the world’s top Dogecoin holder thanks to its users investing in the coin

However, the plan may have backfired in a big way, according to blockchain analytics firm Elliptic’s chief scientist and co-founder, Tom Robinson.

    “Bitcoin is destroying all other assets in the world, and I have never seen this before in my career where an asset has drawn the attention of the likes of Elon Musk and mainstream institutions like no other asset," Pal said.

    The head of the bank’s Investment Strategy Unit also argued that “something with a long-term volatility of 80% can’t be considered a medium of exchange.”

    In a recent briefing on Goldman Sach's 2021 outlook, Sharmin Mossavar-Rahmani, head of the firm's head of the Investment Strategy Group for the Consumer and Investment Management Division, poured cold water on the idea Bitcoin is a new digital gold, saying, "just because everybody piles into an idea and talks it up doesn’t mean it’s a store of value.”
