A Dubai-based crypto-based investment fund, FD7 Ventures, announced that it will offload bitcoins worth $750 million and use the proceeds to increase Cardano and Polkadot tokens positions.
According to FD7 Ventures, this switch to the two altcoins will help the fund serve better investors’ interests looking to diversify their portfolios.
In his remarks following this announcement, Prakash Chand, the managing director at FD7 Ventures, touts the potential of the two altcoins while claiming that BTC “is actually pretty useless.” Chand added:
The managing director adds that after spending time with the founders of both projects, he is “willing to bet that each of Ethereum, Cardano and Polkadot will be more valuable than Bitcoin within the next few years.”

Taking note that since the start of the new year, Cardano’s ADA and Polkadot’s DOT have soared, with the latter setting a new all-time high (ATH) of over $41 on February 20.
