In an interview with The Street, venture investor Tim Draper confirmed his forecast , according to which bitcoin will reach $ 250 thousand dollars by 2022.
"After the theft of funds from the Mt. Gox, I was sure that digital money would not survive. However, that day the price of bitcoin sank only 10-15%, and I realized that people really need it. From that moment on, I began to actively invest in crypto currency, " Draper said.
The investor believes that bitcoin is safer than the US dollar . So, he bought out 40,000 BTC, arrested by the US Federal Marshals Service at Darkkarket's Darkk Road.
