Shervin Pishevar Talks of a US in Rebuild Mode

Entrepreneurship is a notoriously volatile world, so when Shervin Pishevar graduated from the University of California, Berkeley with a degree in molecular cellular biology, his success in this arena was far from preordained. Since making his initial foray into entrepreneurship, Shervin Pishevar has co-founded companies such as Sherpa Capital and Virgin Hyperloop One and has also been an early investor with a myriad of companies that have transcended their respective sectors, including Dollar Shave Club, Uber, Airbnb, Tumblr, and Rap Genius. With an uncanny eye for startups, as well as a virtuosic understanding of the entrepreneurial world, Shervin Pishevar often gathers quite the audience when he chooses to share his personal opinions on economic trends. He recently discussed his ideas regarding the financial position of the United States, as well as a number of global issues when he returned to social media after a brief hiatus.

During his posting session, which lasted a full 24-hours, Shervin Pishevar discussed the role of stateless digital currencies in the world today, as well as how they are affecting the future of the United States. According to Shervin Pishevar, we are on the cusp of a life-altering shift that will result in the banking and governing institutions that we have come to know, a thing of the past. In his opinion, many of these institutions will collapse in the near future and will have to be rebuilt under new guidelines. This sentiment seems to be a positive for Bitcoin and other leading cryptocurrencies. In recent months, Bitcoin has seen its value rise and fall significantly, causing a divisive sentiment to hover amongst investors. At its height, the price of Bitcoin had risen to just below 20k, but this trend soon reversed, and the price quickly fell below 8k. If Mr. Pishevar is correct, Bitcoin will eventually begin to see its price rise once again. During the tweetstorm, Mr. Pishevar divulged that this change is set to occur over the next 24 months, but will not occur at the same pace as it originally did during its 2017 explosion.
