The Billionaire Investor, John Paulson Says Crypto Has ‘No Intrinsic Value’
John Paulson is the co-founder of Paulson & Co, a New York-based firm launched in 1994. He is the historic beneficiary of the United States housing financial market collapse of 2008 after placing a legendary successful short position. John Paulson condemned the volatile nature of digital assets while he recommends investments in traditional safe-havens such as gold. Paulson in an interview indicated that the emerging cryptocurrency market has assets that have a “limited supply of nothing” and “no intrinsic value,” Paulson in his final comment indicated thus: “Cryptocurrencies, regardless of where they’re trading today, will eventually prove to be worthless. Once the exuberance wears off, or liquidity dries up, they will go to zero. I wouldn’t recommend anyone invest in cryptocurrencies.”
Meanwhile, BTC’s price is in a downward move as sellers threaten to short .The bottom line is that the selling pressure will persist if the $46,700 support is breached. On the other hand, the upside momentum will resume if BTC price reclaims, the $48,900 high. BTC price is still trading marginally above the $47,000 support.
