The co-chief investment officer of Bridgewater Associates, Dalio said in a Linkedin post, "Bitcoin looks like a long-duration option on a highly unknown future that I could put an amount of money in that I wouldn't mind losing about 80 percent of."

Calling the cryptocurrency "one hell of an innovation", he said those who created bitcoin had "done a fabulous job" of sustaining it and turning it into an alternative gold-like asset.
