Found this gem! CEO of transferwise says bitcoin is dead, April 2016 @ $450 per bitcoin. The irony being now that their competitor square cash app has integrated bitcoin they need to follow suit or get left behind.

    >Now, blockchain, I think, is a genius advancement in technology.

    Why do bitcoin death-pronouncers always have to hedge their bets with “blockchain is a great technology?” It’s not that great…except for cryptocurrency

    What’s square cash app anyway? Never heard of them and I think they have to be more afraid of Revolut and other neobanks offering interbank exchange rates and free international transfers.
    Also, this has barely anything to do with crypto…

    I feel like usage stats should be shown before making these kinds of claims. Bitcoin has been usable in a plethora of locations for some time now. But last I saw stats show practically no one uses it for anything beyond a speculative asset. Like >90% of btc txs are still directed towards exchanges.

    Transferwise support the Nigerian Naira but not bitcoin ffs. Any fintech company that claims to be a disruptor yet doesn’t integrate the worlds internet native currency (bitcoin) is not a disruptor they are really just part of the incumbent legacy system..
