The Major Points
The report titled “Crypto: A New Asset Class?” was first shared on Twitter by Santiago Roel Santos, General Partner at ParaFi Capital.
According to Goldman Sachs Global Macro Research, the strongest argument of Bitcoin (BTC) as a store of value is its scarcity. Its limited supply and high adoption will continue to set Bitcoin as a store of value.
Ethereum (ETH) on the other hand continues to enlarge its coast for applications, creating what is regarded as the largest ecosystem.

Going by the report, Ethereum provides developers a way to create new applications and most of the decentralized applications (DApps) are built on the Ethereum blockchain. “The greater number of transactions in ether vs bitcoin reflects this dominance,” the report stated.
Likewise, the boom of non-fungible tokens (NFTs) has contributed immensely to the expansion of the Ethereum network in terms of development.
“Given the important of real uses in determining the store of value, ether has a high chance of overtaking bitcoin as a dominant store of value.”
