Renowned investor Jim Rogers, who co-founded the Quantum Fund with billionaire investor George Soros, now regrets not buying bitcoin. However, he is still worried that governments can outlaw bitcoin if it becomes a viable currency.

Jim Rogers’ Bitcoin Regret

Jim Rogers said in an interview with Real Vision this week that he wished he had bought bitcoin years ago. Rogers is George Soros’ former business partner and the co-founder of the Quantum Fund and Soros Fund Management.

He believes that bonds are in a bubble and expects the prices of gold and silver to skyrocket. As for bitcoin, he said:

The price of bitcoin has surged about 54% this year, 612% since the beginning of last year, and 1,152% since the start of 2019. Surpassing previous all-time highs multiple times this year, the BTC price is currently $46,577 at the time of writing with a market capitalization of $871 billion, based on data from markets.Bitcoin.com.

Jim Rogers Warns Government May Outlaw Cryptocurrencies

However, Rogers is still in the mindset that governments will not let cryptocurrency flourish if it succeeds as a currency. In June last year, news.Bitcoin.com reported that the veteran investor warned that governments will stop cryptocurrency while discussing bitcoin being used as money.

During his interview with Real Vision this week, he was quoted as saying:

Popular television personality and bitcoin proponent Max Keiser has predicted that when the BTC price reaches $50K, Rogers will go all-in on bitcoin, as will Shark Tank’s Mark Cuban and gold bug Peter Schiff.

While Rogers is now regretting his decision not to invest in bitcoin earlier, Schiff still insists that the value of the cryptocurrency could fall to zero. Nonetheless, he has admitted that it can also reach $100K. Rogers is also not confident in the U.S. dollar. In September last year, he predicted the end of the dollar dominance.

Rogers is not the only person who has warned about governments stopping cryptocurrency. Harvard Professor Kenneth Rogoff has repeatedly said that governments and central banks will never allow bitcoin to go mainstream and he thinks they will win. Dan Nathan, the founder of Risk Reversal Advisors, said that the U.S. government will not keep allowing corporations like Elon Musk’s Tesla to replace the dollars in their balance sheets with bitcoin.

Another investor who strongly warned about regulators coming down hard on cryptocurrencies is Shark Tank star Kevin O’Leary, aka Mr. Wonderful. “Grown men are going to weep when that happens. You will never see a loss of capital like that ever in your life. It will be brutal,†he said. However, he changed his mind after the approval of two bitcoin exchange-traded funds (ETFs) in Canada. O’Leary is now a bitcoin investor and believes that cryptocurrencies are here to stay.
