One Bitcoin or Student Loans

I have $50k outstanding in student loans ($25k of which is deferred until May). Will be getting a bonus next month which will be around $50k after tax. I plan on working in NYC Finance for the foreseeable future. Should I use my bonus to payoff my student loans (5.5% WACC) or buy 1 Bitcoin and HODL?

This is a serious question btw. I considered buying more ETH and SOL but want to be somewhat responsible. Recommendations welcome.
