Tim Draper sticks to his Bitcoin prediction of $ 250,000

The venture capital investor Tim Draper reiterates his expectation that the price of Bitcoin (BTC) will reach $ 250,000 by 2022. During a round table this week at the Web Summit conference, he said:

"We are talking about a five percent market share to reach $ 250,000. […] All we really need to do is to buy coffee from Starbucks, and suddenly the world opens up and then they say, I have this choice: […] Do I want a currency that I can take from one country to another, or do I want a currency that binds me to a country or a geographical area that I can not use elsewhere? "

As for the legal currencies, Draper said: "Why do we even believe in currencies determined by one or another strange political party?"

According to Tim Draper, banks spend money "whenever they feel like it and for whatever reason they want it". The emergence of a "totally apolitical" currency, global and open, would renounce the control of money from banks to ordinary people.
