Robert Kiyosaki on Why He Buys Bitcoin
The author of Rich Dad Poor Dad, Robert Kiyosaki, shared why he buys bitcoin in a couple of tweets Friday.
Rich Dad Poor Dad is a 1997 book co-authored by Kiyosaki and Sharon Lechter. It has been on the New York Times Best Seller List for over six years. More than 32 million copies of the book have been sold in over 51 languages across more than 109 countries.
In one tweet, the Rich Dad Poor Dad author detailed that he buys bitcoin because pension funds are buying the cryptocurrency. He referenced an article published by Forbes, titled “Your State Pension Is Now Gambling On Cryptocurrency,” which features a survey showing that 94% of America’s state and local government pensions are investing in cryptocurrencies. Tweeting the article to his 1.2 million followers, Kiyosaki wrote:
Why I buy bitcoin. Pension funds are biggest investment businesses in the world.
The survey is part of the latest Investor Trust Study, published in April by the CFA Institute, the global association of investment professionals. The study showed that institutional investors have become bigger users of cryptocurrencies, with two-thirds saying they are currently invested in these products. In addition, government-sponsored pension plans are the most likely to be invested in crypto assets.
In another tweet, Kiyosaki elaborated on why he has recommended buying gold, silver, and bitcoin. The famous author explained that when pensions nearly collapsed, it exposed central banks cannot fix inflation. He noted that pensions have always invested in gold and silver, and now they are investing in bitcoin.
Last week, the Bank of England told lawmakers that a number of pension funds were hours from collapse when it decided to intervene in the British bond market after a massive U.K. government bond sell-off.
Kiyosaki also stated in his tweet that pension funds know that fake money, stocks, and bonds “are toast.” The famous author recently warned that the end of fake money is here, urging investors to invest in “real money,” naming gold, silver, and bitcoin.
The renowned author has been recommending buying bitcoin alongside gold and silver for quite some time. Last month, he urged investors to get into crypto now, before the biggest crash in world history strikes. He noted in June that he is waiting for the price of bitcoin to test $1,100.
Last week, he said that as the Federal Reserve continues raising interest rates, there will be buying opportunities in gold, silver, and bitcoin. He also predicted that the U.S. dollar will crash by January next year after the Fed pivots.
