While Bitcoin has certainly outperformed gold in recent years, underlying volatility brings its “inflation hedge” status into question.

Meanwhile, investment demand for precious metals (gold, silver, and platinum) has risen steadily in the face of mounting inflation, trending +17% YoY on a 365-day moving average.

The price of these assets has underperformed risk-on assets like stocks and Bitcoin over the past 2 years. But, growing concern about the USD has prompted many consumers, central banks, and forward-looking companies to begin accumulating precious metals.
