On Monday, Business titan and billionaire investor Mark Cuban said “Bitcoin is a great alternative store of value,” while sharing his view on how cryptocurrencies might shape the future during his appearance on Fox Business.
“I think it’s a better alternative than gold, but not all crypto is the same. You put Bitcoin in the category of stored value, then you move to things like Ethereum,” Cuban told his host, Neil Cavuto.
“Ethereum is really a significant network, and because of their smart contracts and their security and their ability to have distributed management, I think you’re going to see a lot of unique business applications occur,” Cuban went on to say, before elaborating.
“I’m investing in things like decentralized insurance applications, decentralized ways to distribute NFTs, which allow for things like 3-D printing files, textbooks – so many different applications,” he revealed. “It’s very analogous to what we saw in the early days of the internet when we went from analog to digital.”
