Lighten Up Your Monday with 10 Bitcoin Believer Bull Calls on the Bright Future of BTC’s Value
As is clear for everyone to see, over the past couple of years, digital assets have gained mainstream acceptance across the globe — especially in a number of Asian and European nations. As a result of this, a plethora of well-known individuals from the world of finance, digital tech, and R&D have started to support premier alt-currencies such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, XRP etc.
In this piece, we shall look at some of the biggest crypto advocates in existence today. So without any further ado, let's get right into the heart of the matter:
(i) Tim Draper:
Draper is a well-known venture capitalist who has been associated with the crypto market since its inception. For example, he was one of the first big-name individuals to invest in Bitcoin— a time when the flagship currency was trading for less than USD $1,000.
In addition to this, many of our regular readers may also remember that Draper is a massive Bitcoin bull who has time and again claimed that the premier currency will push past the $250,000 mark by the end of 2022.
(ii) Jack Dorsey:
Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey has been a big fan of Bitcoin as well as its second-layer payment protocol ‘The Lightning Network’ for quite some time now. During his now infamous appearance of the Joe Rogan Experience, Dorsey quite explicitly stated that he was in favour of a single, unifying currency for the internet.
In this regard, he believes that Bitcoin can fulfill this role quite well.
“We would love to see something become a global currency. It enables more access. It allows to serve more people. It allows us to move much faster around the world.”
(iii) Anthony ‘Pomp’ Pompliano:
‘Pomp’ as he is affectionately referred to across the globe, is of the opinion that even though Bitcoin is going through a massive financial struggle at the moment, the flagship crypto asset has the potential to experience an economic breakthrough sometime in the near future.
Anthony has often likened BTC to conventional stock options and investments — since the digital token is independent of any other asset in the market today.
(iv) Bobby Lee:
BTCChina co-founder ‘Bobby Lee’ is a Bitcoin bull who famously declared last year that the world’s largest cryptocurrency (by total market capitalization) would scale up to a price point of $77,000 by August 2020.
Also, in his opinion, as and when BTC is able to break past the $60K barrier, the currency will start to experience more and more long-term financial stability.
(v) Peter Thiel:
Venture Capitalist and Paypal co-founder ‘Peter Thiel’ has bet-big on the future of Bitcoin. In this regard, the billionaire believes that BTC is somewhat like gold— primarily in the sense that it can serve as an excellent store of value for the masses.
During a recent interview with a mainstream media outlet, he was quoted as saying that even crypto skeptics are now beginning to agree that
“Bitcoin is slowly but surely turning into the online equivalent of gold”.
(vi) Steve Wozniak:
Wozniak is probably best known for being the co-founder of multi-billion dollar corporation Apple. However, what many people might not know is that he is one of the biggest Bitcoin advocates on the face of this planet today.
He has often referred to BTC as the ‘world’s local currency’. Not only that, he also believes that the decentralization aspect of crypto is what makes this entire domain so appealing to the investment community at large.
(vii) John McAfee:
One of the most entertaining and controversial proponents of Bitcoin today is an eccentric billionaire ‘John McAfee’. In his fight to eliminate centralized banking institutions from the face of the earth, McAfee has been advocating for the widespread use of BTC for quite some time now.
To further his vision and cause, he has devised a number of novel ways to promote Bitcoin. For example, he infamously challenged his Twitter opponents that he would “eat his d*ck” if Bitcoin failed to reach a price point of $1 million before 2021. If that wasn’t enough, the crypto savant has also been seen promoting a number of novel Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs) and blockchain projects over the past few years.
(viii) Bill Miller:
Miller is a well-known investment banker who has often referred to Bitcoin as being one of the most “important technological experiments” of the 20th century. In addition to this, he previously revealed to his Twitter followers that right after BTC hit its all-time high of $20K at the beginning of 2018, he invested
“50 percent of the money from his hedge fund into various digital offerings”.
(ix) Abigail Johnson:
Fidelity Investments CEO, Abigail Johnson, has been a massive supporter of virtual currencies for quite some time now. In this regard, she has been pushing her firm to adopt these offerings since she believes crypto to be the logical successor of digital cash.
(x) Zhao Dong:
Chinese investor Zhao Dong is a billionaire who swears by Bitcoin— so much so that he thoroughly believes that 2020 will see the resurgence of the flagship cryptocoin.
However, all of his optimism might stem from the fact that he owns a majority stake in one of Asia’s largest crypto-trading platforms ‘Bitfinex’.
