Crypto Expert Tim Draper Says Bitcoin is Bigger than Internet
Tim Draper has taken part in the debate along with Overstock CEO and Bitcoin bull Patrick Byrne. They have been discussing the matter of crypto with two cryptocurrency skeptics. During the debate, Mr. Draper has compared Bitcoin and Blockchain as a whole to his early investments in Skype, Tesla, and Hotmail.
He also stated that Bitcoin would be “bigger than all of those combined.” Mr. Draper went on to say that the scale and importance of Bitcoin and Blockchain surpass that of major technological developments. He has stated:
“It’s bigger than the Iron Age, the Renaissance. It’s bigger than the Industrial Revolution.”
He also has reiterated his Bitcoin forecast that in five years from now, cryptocurrencies will replace fiat:
