Bitcoin as a Safe Haven/Store of Value (SoV)

Updated: Mar 18, 2020

It appears from the news coverage from 2016 - 2019 (not comprehensive) the thought that Bitcoin being a store of value is all over the map. It floats from absolutely not to absolutely is. Who is correct? Is Bitcoin a Safe Haven? One thing for sure - the conversation is being had much more and the news cycle is talking about it more.
