As the Bitcoin Cash hard fork date approaches wall streets favorite crypto analyst Tom Leee sides with Bitcoin over Bitcoin cash for new money.

Lee Likes Bitcoin Over Bitcoin Cash

Tom Lee sat down with the panel of CNBC’s Fast Money once again to talk about the differences between Bitcoin and Bitcoin cash at the moment.

Lee who is a regular on such economic television shows as one of the market’s chief bullish advisors said that he prefers Bitcoin over Bitcoin cash for “fresh dollars” adding thatIf I was putting new money to work, a fresh dollar, Id be much more interested in buying a laggard that could attract inflows, rather than something that is potentially overbought.

Lee saying that at the moment BitcoinCash is overbought references the recent momentum the currency is getting from the scheduled may 15 hard fork that will among other things increase its block size from 8 to 32 MB, thus increasing its transaction speed.

Bitcoin Cash itself is a result of a fork from the original Bitcoin that happened in August 2017 for the same reasons. Bitcoin was created as 1 MB block size that as the coin gained popularity as an investment proved too slow for traders. The 2017 fork increased transactions speed from days to minutes.

Ever Bullish Lee Sees Bitcoin Going to $55,000

Fundstrat’s Tom Lee was asked by the Fast Money panel to chose between Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash as both were rising in price at the beginning of the week but then dropped Wednesday with Bitcoin losing 2.4% and Bitcoin Cash falling 17%, to which he answered: I prefer not to pick winners and losers when were looking at cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin/Bitcoin Cash.”

The conversation turned to institutional money and whether money managers were now being “allowed” to speculate in the cryptocurrency market. To which Lee said

Every week that passes theres further progress and further clarity. I think more clients are starting to be very serious about how they want to have exposure to this asset class Were having more conversations with people youd never think would actually have an interest who want to talk about it.

Lee continued saying that the cryptocurrency space was maturing as it gainedclarity and custody which will attract money from serious investors citing the fact that Goldman Sachs plans on opening a dedicated trading desk for the crypto market this summer.

Lee who acts ashead of research at Fundstrat Global Advisors has remained bullish on Bitcoin throughout the market correction of 2018 and has predicted its price will go to $25,000 at the end of the year and $55,000 by 2022.
