Calling Bitcoin a “Bubble”, Credit Suisse Sold for $3 Billion, Binance CEO Makes a Statement
In light of this news, an old story resurfaced in which Tidjane Thiam, former CEO of Credit Suisse, stated that he was cautious about Bitcoin and that the current interest in BTC may eventually dwindle.
The CEO of Credit Suisse, who made these statements when the price of Bitcoin was approximately $ 7,000 in 2017, also angered crypto money investors by using the following statements:
“As far as we can determine, the only reason to buy and sell Bitcoin today is to make money, which is the very definition of speculation and bubble.”
When we come to today, we have seen that after Credit Suisse’s big financial troubles, even Dogecoin was sold for an amount below its market value, for $ 3 billion. Credit Suisse shareholders will suffer substantial losses by receiving the equivalent of just 0.76 Swiss Francs in UBS shares.
