Here are some of the most important developments from the crypto world in the last few days

Whales and professional traders are the only investors who have made money from bitcoin, and retail investors likely lost their money if they bought bitcoin after 2015, the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) said in a report.

The BIS report examines how retail investors flooded the space as coin and token prices began to fall. Most of the buying happened when Bitcoin was above $30,000, Decrypt said, citing the BIS report.

Bitcoin is currently trading around $25,000, down 64 percent from its all-time high of $69,000.

According to the BIS, larger holders typically benefited at the expense of small investors when Terra and FTX collapsed.

Digital currency can solve inflation, says world’s largest hedge fund founder

Bridgewater Associates founder Ray Dalio said that digital currencies have the potential to solve inflation.

“Money as we know it is at risk because we print too much, and it’s not just affecting the United States,” Decrypt quoted him as saying.

Dalio, who is also the world’s largest hedge fund founder, said that the closest he had to his vision on the market was an inflation-linked index bond in the form of a digital currency. “I think what… would be best would be an inflation-linked coin,” he said.

Dalio ruled out Bitcoin as a solution as it has proven to be too volatile. He said biotech and many other industries are “more interesting than Bitcoin.”
