The astonishing rise of cryptocurrencies, including red-hot Bitcoin, just handed one of the world’s leading gold miners one more reason to urge investors to buy the age-old haven that is bullion.

“If you’re into cryptos, you want to consider having some gold,” Newcrest Mining Ltd. Chief Executive Officer Sandeep Biswas told Bloomberg TV after the Melbourne-based company reported earnings on Thursday. Bullion “may act as a bit of a hedge against the volatility of cryptos,” he said.
