Ron Paul’s Twitter Survey Suggest, People Prefer Bitcoin as a Long Term Investment
Ron Paul, the former US Congressmen, asked his Twitter followers, where they would invest $10,000 gift if they cannot use it for a decade. Most of those followers preferred Bitcoin over the more traditional forms of investment like Gold, or Federal Currency.
The break down of total 94,894 votes show, 50% preferred Bitcoin as their primary choice for investments while 37% said Gold is still a good option to invest. The US treasury bonds came third with 11% vote share, and the US Dollar had only 2% in their support.
A wealthy person gifts you $10,000. You get to choose in which form you’ll accept the gift. But there’s a catch: You must keep the gift in the form that you choose for 10 years without touching it. In which form would you accept the gift?

The survey was tweeted out on 14th November, a day before it lost 10% of the total market cap within 24 hours. The analyst at Fundstrat believes the market might take a couple of weeks to bounce back if not months. However, on the contrary, Bloomberg believes that Bitcoin prices are on its way to slump down as low as $1500 in coming months.
Ron Paul conducted a very similar survey on December 5 of 2017 and received pretty much the same result. Bitcoin had 4% more taker while the other three options received votes on the same line as the current one. The Bitcoin was trading at $11,500, and on Dec 17, it hits the $20,000 mark.
