 E-Crypto News:


  1. Now that Bitcoin has risen, what are your projections for now and next year?



It’s impossible to say but I will sweat when BTC hits $35000, and I think that will happen before 2021 is over. 

 E-Crypto News:

2. Why do you think the Altcoins haven’t followed Bitcoin this time?



You need a use case and a brand. Ethereum and Bitcoin dominate use cases because they have the brand. Altcoins therefore straggle. However, they will rise if BTC continues its vertical.

 E-Crypto News:


3. Do you think institutions are the new whales in the cryptospace? Please tell us the reasons for your answer.


Crypto-whales are a red herring.

 E-Crypto News:

4. Do you think we will have a massive reversal of prices the same way it occurred in 2017? Please tell us the reasons for your answer.


Highly probably, but so is $250,000 BTC; the route there will be wildly volatile. 

 E-Crypto News:

5. What are your thoughts on decentralized finance (DeFi)?



Revolutionary, world-changing, and absolutely the next big thing. Colossally impactful. 

 E-Crypto News:

6. What are your thoughts on Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDCs)?


All currencies are digital currencies; 90% of all money is digital already. The Fed doesn’t send paper to banks anymore.

Misnomers are dangerous things. Central bank crypto? Why not? Crypto is about political structure and that can be whatever is coded and as good as the code and its structure. Would central bank crypto be any good? Probably not at first.

 E-Crypto News:

7. Do you think that there is an Altcoin that could replace Bitcoin in the future? Please tell us the reasons for your answer.


No. Bitcoin has an unassailable first-mover advantage.

 E-Crypto News:

8. What do you think are the factors causing the current Bitcoin price surge?



The Halvening

Trouble in China and Hong Kong

Inflation worries

Continued growth of adoption

DeFi wrapping BTC

PayPal sucking up a lot of new issuance

Corporate treasury hedging

 E-Crypto News:

9. What is your timeline and prediction for the next Bitcoin All-time-high?



Before Christmas but it’s foolish to try and call; technically, market timing is impossible

 E-Crypto News:

10. How do you think the security vs. commodity dilemma that Bitcoin and many of the cryptocurrencies face can be solved? 

Politics is never solved… resolved perhaps. Yes, it will be resolved at some point because it will become yesterday’s news and the gatekeepers will re-engineer their rentier position and grab their slice of the pie.
