Jim Rogers: bitcoin will drop down to zero
Renowned American investor and Chairman of Rogers Holdings Jim Rogers stated that bitcoin continued to be a bubble and at one point in the future its price would plummet to zero. He pointed out that cryptocurrencies could not exist because they were not controlled by authorities. "But their governments have something that crypto people don't have. That is guns. The reason why I think cryptocurrency will be gone eventually is that it is not based on the armed force of governments' power.", Rogers worded his point of view. He added that money was turning into a digital form, but it continued to be controlled by regulators unlike cryptocurrencies that would not be able to become legal tender. Max Keiser: the BTC price will grow to $400,000 when dollar collapses
Bitcoin investor Max Keiser confirmed his forecast about the growth of the first cryptocurrency exchange rate up to $400,000 and specified that specific dates would depend on the collapse of the US dollar. According to Keiser, the interest payment on the USA's national debt comprised the main item of expense for the government. "The debt is big. But the interest on that debt is now bigger than America’s number-one budget item, the military’s 1.6 trillion spend. When the interest on the debt gets close to 100% of GDP then America will officially be a failed state. This looks like it will be the case within 5 years — as short interest rates snap back to historic levels of 5%, not the current 0.5%", the trader said. He added that he had been waiting for BTC to grow up to $100,000 since 2011, but had recently increased his forecast to $400,000. The increase will start with the collapse of US dollar, Keiser thinks. Anthony Pompliano encouraged pension funds to buy bitcoin
Co-founder of Morgan Creek Capital Management Anthony Pompliano addressed pension funds encouraging them to invest money in the cryptocurrency. Last week he sent a letter to investors where he called bitcoin the most effective equity in the nearest years to come. According to the businessman, pension funds should invest at least 1% of the capital in BTC — the optimal level would be 5%. "And you want to know where the greatest innovation is occurring at the moment? Bitcoin. There is a group of individuals who have built a $150+ billion asset with the goal of assuming the position of the next global reserve currency. If that happens, it will be the best performing asset for the next 20+ years. But even if that doesn’t happen, things will be okay", Pompliano pointed out.
