Recently, Rieder expressed optimism towards investment in emerging markets given the low-yield environment in the U.S. and Biden’s presidency, allowing for moderate global policies. Bitcoin falls right in this arena

The BlackRock CIO added today that the “receptivity” of digital assets and technology among millennials is high. Moreover, the central banks pondering over CBDCs adds to the narrative. In conclusion, Rieder said: “I think cryptocurrencies are here to stay.” 

Further, on Bitcoin’s proposition as a competitor to gold, the BlackRock CIO said:

“Do I think it’s a durable mechanism that will take the place of gold to a large extent? Yes, I do, because it is so much more functional that passing a bar of gold around.”

Despite the SPX and gold reaching new highs, Bitcoin’s growth has outpaced all investment assets year. The market capitalization of BTC is close to 2.5-2.75% of the gold market.

Institutions like BlackRock looking at a small allocation to Bitcoin in their portfolios is currently a no-brainer.
