Long-term future of cryptocurrency is brighter than ever: Roger Ver
The bearish market has made many in the cryptocurrency community doubt the future of the space. However, Bitcoin.com CEO, Roger Ver, appears to be very optimistic. In fact, he believes that the future for cryptocurrency is brighter than ever.
In a recent interview with Bloomberg, Ver was questioned about the future of cryptocurrencies. In response, he stated that “long-term the future is brighter than ever,” for cryptocurrencies. He also added that there’s “more awareness,” “more adoption,” and “more stuff happening all over the world.”
In fact, Ver even went on to explain some “bullish signals” he noticed in the space. According to him, the fact that people are trying to demonize cryptocurrency for cybercrimes or for Ponzi scheme, or the security breaches in cryptocurrency exchanges resulting in millions of dollars stolen from investors. Ver believes these are the sign that show that “cryptocurrency is here to stay and here for the long-term.”
“If anything I think it’s brought additional awareness to the ecosystem in the fact that such big players are involved. The fact that hackers are trying to hack it shows its worth something. If it wasn’t worth anything, it wasn’t useful, hackers wouldn’t be wasting their time trying to hack it,” Ver added. “I’m incredibly bullish on the entire crypto coin ecosystem, and Bitcoin Cash specifically.”
Ver was also asked how the stigma surrounding cryptocurrencies can be shed. To which, he stated that influential people as well as businesses in the space “need to build an economy based on actually using cryptocurrencies as currencies rather than just a bunch of speculators speculating.”
It is to be noted that just last month, Bitcoin Cash had a hard fork which got split into two coins: Bitcoin ABC and Bitcoin SV. Bitcoin ABC was led by Roger Ver and other supporters, while Bitcoin SV was led by Craig Wright and its supporters.
“I wish every cryptocurrency good luck if they’re trying to bring more economic freedom to the world by making them useful as currencies for the world,” Ver concluded.
