March 5, 2020      Jyoti Singh

Andrew Bailey, who would soon become the governor of the Bank of England, once again echoed his past warnings on Bitcoin. The former head of the UK’s Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), while addressing the Treasury Select Committee, said that the people investing in digital assets should now be prepared to lose all their money.

It was the second time Bailey gave a negative response to investing in Bitcoin.

Andrew Bailey’s Interview With BBC’s Newsnight

Earlier, in December 2017, during an interview with the BBC, Bailey mentioned that investing funds in Bitcoin is similar to gambling because, neither it is a currency nor a volatile commodity.

Bailey again stated, “If you want to invest in Bitcoin, be prepared to lose your money – that would be my serious warning”.

According to the report, in February 2020, Warren Buffet, a billionaire investor, also had claimed that presently, Bitcoin’s value in the market has been going down. However, there has been a time when Buffett does not share his clear view of cryptocurrency, Bailey has remained very consistent regarding his view.
