Buyshares.co.uk's research also compared the Return of Investment between Bitcoin and the major indices based on Year-to-Date statistics. Bitcoin had the highest ROI at 28.71%. NASDAQ had the second ROI of 8.74%, to emerge as the only index with a positive return between January 1st and June 26 this year.

Various factors have contributed to the recent crash of the leading indices offering Bitcoin a golden opportunity to thrive. According to Buyshares.co.ke research report:

“With coronavirus pandemic that led to the traditional market crash, many view Bitcoin as an alternative store of wealth. Bitcoin fans consider the pandemic as the catalyst for elevating the cryptocurrency to the digital gold.”

The current crash will offer investors a chance to put money in stocks with the hope to reap later.
