The Signs are Already Here
Measured in USD, 2017 was a very good year for equities: The Dow-Jones was up 25% in USD terms.
But measured in one of the more stable crypto currencies, who rose in price in 2017 but modestly compared to other coins, Bitcoin, the Dow-Jones was down 91% in 2017!
This has many reasons, but some are because more and more assets are migrating to the digital world and are represented in cryptos rather than fiat currencies, and because of the network effects.
Over the past 5 years, a portfolio with just 1% of Bitcoin in it would have outperformed the same portfolio with 0% Bitcoin by 20%. And a portfolio with just 5% Bitcoin would have outperformed by almost 100%!
