Bitcoin's real valueAlthough most investors view bitcoin as a store of value, there are two key elements that increase its attractiveness, says Laidler.
What that means simplistically is despite the very high volatility, an investor can add bitcoin into a broadly diversified portfolio and it can lower the risk in that portfolio, Laidler says.
Advice to investorsWhile Laidler has an enthusiastic outlook on bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, he doesn't recommend investing in anything you don't understand.
So whatever you do, don't just invest in bitcoin, make that a small part of your overall portfolio," Laidler says.
