Amid the price of Ether reaching an all-time high this week, businessman Kevin O’Leary still believes Bitcoin will stay on top of the token.
Speaking to CNBC yesterday, 的 鲨鱼坦克 star said Ether (ETH) 曾是 “always going to be number two” 到比特币 (比特币) despite the token reaching an all-time high price of more than $2,600 at the time of the interview, 并超过 $2,700 在出版时. 比特币的价格, 另一方面, has been volatile in April, rising to a new all-time high of more than $64,000 while later falling under $50,000.
O’Leary said Ether was more likely to be used as a “tracking and payment system” but the price of the token made it too expensive for that purpose at the moment. He pointed out that institutional investors moving in on Bitcoin may be the driving force behind the crypto asset hitting all-time high prices this year, 加:
的 鲨鱼坦克 明星说他自从拥有加密货币以来 2017, 上个月宣布他将分配 3% 他投资组合的一部分进入比特币. 然而, 他之前曾将数字资产称为“加密废话”，而将比特币称为“不是真实货币”。
此外, O’Leary has been a proponent for sustainable crypto mining, arguing against “blood coins,” i.e. cryptocurrencies unethically mined, which includes some in China. He has said his crypto investments would only include “clean” Bitcoin “under a mandate of 0 carbon.”
