ETF Battles: Gold vs. Bitcoin (Which is the Superior Investment?)

Are you ready to rumble? In this round of ETF Battles, you’ll see the SPDR Gold Shares (GLD) and the Grayscale Bitcoin Trust (GBTC) go head-to-head. It’s gold vs. bitcoin in a classic duel for the ages between these two investment alternatives to fiat currencies.

Bitcoin was invented in 2008 while gold’s history goes back 5,000 years. Another way to think about this battle is new kid on the block vs. the established neighborhood kid. Which is the better investment?

In this episode, Ron DeLegge @ETFguide referees the showdown with guests David Kreinces at ETF Portfolio Management and Mike Akins at ETF Action judging the ETF battle.

GLD and GBTC battle each other in key categories like cost, exposure strategy, performance and a mystery category. Who wins? #ETFBattles #Bitcoin #Gold
