Goldman Sachs Warned It Will Soon Be Scrambling To ‘Catch Up’ On Bitcoin

Goldman Sachs

, along with other Wall Street giants, has been eyeing bitcoin and cryptocurrency markets this year—and has already taken some big steps into the space.

Those steps follow the bitcoin price, up some 40% so far this year and hovering at a little over $10,000 per bitcoin, finding support through a roller coaster 2020 as a potential hedge against a wave of inflation that some see on the horizon.

Now, after it was announced last month a 20-year Goldman Sachs veteran will be joining merchant bank Galaxy Digital in early 2021, the firm’s founder and chief executive, Michael Novogratz, has warned Goldman will soon be scrambling to catch up with its head start in bitcoin and crypto.

Goldman Sachs Says Election Fears Are Overblown; Suggests 2 Stocks to Consider

November 3 is just around the corner, and Wall Street’s gaze has locked in on the race to the White House. Biden currently leads in the polls, but it’s still anyone’s race.  

Now, with President Trump’s COVID-19-related hospitalization rocking the last leg of the 2020 presidential election campaign, and Senate control also up for grabs, fears regarding a divided government are circling the Street. 

That said, this might not be such a bad thing, if you ask Goldman Sachs. “A divided government scenario would lead to a smaller change in interest rates and a reduction in political uncertainty,” the firm’s chief equity strategist David Kostin wrote. The strategist argues that such an outcome could push the S&P 500 to 3,700, which would reflect an 11% gain, with the index reaching 4,000 by mid-2021. 

But what will happen if Biden comes out on top? Kostin believes a blue wave wouldn’t be

  • Former Goldman Sachs CFO and CIO Martin Chavez says all workers in the future should be prepared to learn some form of coding. 
  • LinkedIn data shows that there’s been a recent boom in users taking introductory coding courses online, with increases as high as 500% in the past year.
  • But the Wall Street executive recently told CNBC that for most workers the key is to learn an algorithmic, problem-solving way of thinking, rather than becoming an actual computer coder.

A new tech skill all workers need to be valuable: Former Goldman CFO

Martin Chavez served in more than one major role during his Goldman Sachs career, including chief financial officer and chief information officer, and those experiences were prime opportunities for the self-described “quant” to learn a valuable lesson about the future of work and technology. 

Wall Street will not be run by computer code alone, he says, but the rise of algorithms in financial services is a lesson in why most workers will need to become familiar with computer code if they want to be valuable to their organizations.

“Not everyone needs to be a coder,” Chavez said. “The idea of coding is valuable and wonderful, but the idea everyone should learn to code? … I don’t know, but everyone does need to have an algorithmic data, problem-solving mindset. That is a baseline skill for every professional in the workplace, no matter what the role is,” the former Goldman Sachs top
