The Winklevoss twins, owners of the US crypto exchange Gemini, seem to maintain their very bullish outlook on BTC’s future despite the bearish market.
During an AMA session on Reddit, crypto mogul Tyler Winklevoss said that BTC is walking the right path to surpass the market cap of gold which is currently around $7 trillion.
“Our thesis around Bitcoin’s upside remains unchanged. We believe Bitcoin is better at being gold than gold. If we’re right, then over time the market cap of Bitcoin will surpass the ~$7 trillion market cap of gold,” he wrote.
If BTC’s market cap surpassed gold, 1 BTC would cost about $333,333
If BTC’s market cap were to exceed the one of gold, one BTC would be worth about $333,333, once Bitcoin’s total supply of 21 million is in circulation.
Nick Szabo, the famous cryptographer, has recently explained his vision which is pretty much the same.
“There’s going to be some situations where a central bank can’t trust a foreign central bank or government with their bonds, for example. One solution that’s been developed is to have the Swiss government hold it for you – that’s not a trust minimized solution. The Swiss government itself is subject to political pressures, and so a more trust-minimized solution is cryptocurrency.”
He also said that there’s another issue with gold reserves: they are physically vulnerable.
BTC mainstream adoption is here
The year has just begun, and it seems that we’re on the right path towards mainstream adoption of BTC and crypto.
"This is great to see! #MainstreamAdoption – one pocket of spare change at a time!" cBc
