1 - Decentralisation

Unlike traditional currencies, they are not dependent on any central authority. This reduces the risk of currency manipulation and censorship, and offers transparency thanks to the blockchain technology on which they are based. Transactions are recorded immutably and can be verified by anyone, which increases confidence in the system. Bitcoin and Ethereum are sufficiently liquid and distributed assets to be safe from market manipulation.

2 - Potential hedge against inflation

In a context where central banks around the world are increasing monetary supply, Bitcoin, with its limited supply of 21 million units, is often compared to digital gold. This programmed scarcity is seen as a way of preserving value in the face of the devaluation of fiat currencies.

3 - High yield

Although volatile, they have grown exponentially in value over the past decade. Assets such as Bitcoin and Ethereum have offered returns on investment that far outstrip those of traditional markets such as equities or gold. This performance is attracting investors looking for diversification and potentially high returns.

4 - Innovation in finance

With the development of new projects and the emergence of decentralised finance (DeFi), investors have access to a range of innovative financial products. These products offer investment opportunities in lending, exchange protocols, and even non-fungible tokens (NFTs), paving the way for new forms of returns.

5 - New asset class

The growing institutional adoption validates the relevance of cryptocurrencies as an asset class. Companies such as Tesla and financial institutions such as Goldman Sachs, BlackRock, Société Générale or HSBC have integrated cryptocurrencies into their investment strategies or offer services linked to these assets, reinforcing their legitimacy and integration into the traditional economy.
