Positive Things Famous People Said About Bitcoin

What a year for crypto enthusiasts, Bitcoin has been on a roller-coaster ride all this year. Digital currency has attracted both love and hate from all sections of the world. Some experts call it a speculative bubble, fraud and what not, while its lovers call it the best thing that has happened to mankind since the invention of Internet. Since its inception Bitcoin has attracted people from all kinds of life: scientists, celebrities, investors, politicians, sportsman, law makers, geeks, students and you will hear countless stories of adventures and misadventures. Below we put down some positive things famous people said about Bitcoin.

Bill Gates (CO-FOUNDER, MICROSOFT CORP)

“Bitcoin is exciting because it shows how cheap it can be. Bitcoin is better than currency in that you don’t have to be physically in the same place and of course for large transactions currency can get pretty inconvenient.”

Eric Schmidt (CHAIRMAN, ALPHABET INC)

“Bitcoin is a remarkable cryptographic achievement. The ability to create something which is not duplicable in the digital world has enormous value.”

Abigail Johnson (CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER, FIDELITY INVESTMENTS)

“I am a believer. I am one of the few standing before you today from a large financial-services company that has not given up on digital currencies.”

Steve Wozniak (CO-FOUNDER, APPLE)

“Bitcoin is better than gold and the U.S. dollar. There is a certain finite amount of bitcoin that can ever exist. Gold gets mined and mined and mined. Maybe there’s a finite amount of gold in the world, but cryptocurrency is even more mathematical and regulated and nobody can change mathematics.”

John Mcaffee (FOUNDER, MCAFFEE INC)

“If Bitcoin does not reach $500,000 in 3 years, I will eat my dick on national television.”

Richard Branson (FOUNDER, VIRGIN GROUP)

“Bitcoin as a currency is working. There may be other currencies like it that may be even better. But in the meantime, there’s a big industry around bitcoin. People have made fortunes off bitcoin; some have lost money. It is volatile, but people make money off of volatility, too.”




Lloyd Blankfein (CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER, GOLDMAN SACHS GROUP INC)

“I don’t have an investment in it, but I’m not willing to pooh-pooh it, and that’s why I say I’m open to it.”

Peter Thiel (CO-FOUNDER, PAYPAL AND BILLIONAIRE VENTURE CAPITALIST)

“Bitcoin critics are underestimating it. It’s like a reserve form of money, it’s like gold and it’s just a store of value. You don’t need to use it to make payments.”

Mark Cuban (BILLIONAIRE VENTURE CAPITALIST)

“Bitcoin’s value is a function of supply and demand, it doesn’t really do anything else, Blockchain is a great platform for future applications.”

Christine Lagarde (MANAGING DIRECTOR, INTERNATIONAL MONETARY FUND)

“Not so long ago, some experts argued that personal computers would never be adopted and that tablets would only be used as expensive coffee trays. So I think it may not be wise to dismiss virtual currencies. Countries with weak institutions and unstable national currencies may see growing use.”

James Gorman (CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER, MORGAN STANLEY)

“Bitcoin is certainly something more than just a fad. The concept of anonymous currency is a very interesting concept, interesting for the privacy protections it gives people, interesting because what it says to the central-banking system about controlling that.”
