🤑 Rich Dad, Bitcoin Dad

Robert Kiyosaki, the author of "Rich Dad Poor Dad," advocates for Bitcoin as a hedge against what he sees as the systematic erosion of wealth by entities like the Federal Reserve and Wall Street.

But why is this important?

He’s relatable and trusted by many people. For someone with his influence to be advocating for Bitcoin, could potentially spark the curiosity of people who have previously been dismissive of it.

 💀 Is the 60/40 Dead?

Cathie Wood's ARK Invest suggests that the optimal Bitcoin allocation for portfolios in 2023 was 19.4%, a recommendation based on maximizing risk-adjusted returns.

This allocation represents a significant increase over previous years, which sat at 6.2% in 2022, highlighting Bitcoin's role as a diversifier in a portfolio.

The 60/40 split between stocks and bonds may not be dead yet but in today’s environment, funds are certainly upping their recommended Bitcoin exposure.
