There is no doubt that some light was pointed on the controversial crypto world during the just concluded SkyBridge Alternatives (SALT) conference held in Las Vegas. And, as usual, there were two competing categories of people at the conference: those who are bullish on crypto and those who do not see any future for cryptocurrency like Nouriel Roubini (AKA Dr. Doom). At the conference, an interview with Tim Draper, one of the founding partners of…

Crypto Battle: Ethereum’s Buterin vs. Professor Roubini in Seoul

The line between crypto enthusiasts and critics has always been conspicuously clear with both adversaries at the very ends of the line. Crypto enthusiasts, like the optimists, always believe in the growth and sustainability of the crypto ecosystem; while crypto critics are, most often, on the bearish end of the spectrum. We have had our fair share of face-offs between both parties over the years with more critics springing up theories and analysis to back…

Report: Declining Volatility Might Set a Bitcoin Bull Run

Report: Declining Volatility Might Set a Bitcoin Bull Run

History has witnessed the number of significant marks accomplished by Bitcoin as well as tremendous variations in its price movements.

Defying Reality, Famous Economist Nouriel Roubini Declares Crypto “Went Bust for Good”

Defying Reality, Famous Economist Nouriel Roubini Declares Crypto “Went Bust for Good”

The famed economist Nouriel Roubini is known for many things; subtlety is not one of them. In recent years, the famous NYU professor – who rose to stardom after predicting the 2007-2008 financial crisis – has been repeatedly attacking Bitcoin specifically and cryptocurrency in general. He even went as far as referring to crypto as “worse than North Korea” and calling Ethereum founder Vitalik Buterin “Dictator for Life.” Not very subtle. Now, after he took…

Nouriel Roubini Takes on Crypto in Front of the U.S. Senate

Nouriel Roubini has warned and predicted the Global Financial Crisis (2007-2009), and consequently earned a reputation of a world-renowned economist.

Dr. Nouriel Roubini: Crypto Is Worse than North Korea, Vitalik Buterin “Dictator for Life”

Dr. Nouriel Roubini: Crypto Is Worse than North Korea, Vitalik Buterin “Dictator for Life”

I like Dr. Nouriel Roubini. Yes, in spite of his blatant anti-crypto stance. Even if and when you disagree with him (which happens to occur quite a lot), he always makes at least some good points which make you wonder and think. Thinking is important, or at least that’s what I’ve heard. But now, the globally renowned economist who had famously predicted the 2007-2008 financial crisis seems to went off the rails – and not…
