In a recent tweet, Lawrence McDonald, a Lehman Brothers veteran, argues that Bitcoin, the world’s largest cryptocurrency, has likely destroyed “far more” wealth than it managed to create.

He believes that Bitcoin cannot actually serve as a viable store of value due to “unbearable” drawdowns.

While cryptocurrency proponents always tend to point to Bitcoin’s stellar returns over the past 10 years, McDonald is convinced that no one has actually held the largest cryptocurrency for such a long period of “Do you believe in flying elephants too?” he tweeted.

The cryptocurrency is down 75.72% from its all-time high that was achieved in November 2021.

Last month, he tweeted that Bitcoin continues to be anything but an inflation hedge.
