"I often see people on social media saying that Bitcoin has no real use besides market speculation. In countries without serious economic problems, perhaps that is true. But countries like Venezuela, where the economy is dysfunctional, showcase Bitcoin’s greatest potential. The story of my son’s birth is an illustration of that," he said.

7.  Michael Novogratz, the CEO of Galaxy Digital, said that if the United States doesn’t transition to a digital world things can change fast. He went on saying that other countries such as China are way ahead in terms of fintech adoption and support and this could affect the U.S. dollar reserve status.
