From Jack Dorsey to Jay-Z, here are the most interesting and pertinent quotes in the crypto industry for the week ending Feb. 14.
Miami Mayor Francis Suarez calls Bitcoin “Biggest Story of the Next Few Years”
While Bitcoin is surging to new all-time highs, Miami Mayor Francis Suarez has been busy pushing cryptocurrency adoption in the city. Miami is now officially the first major city in the US to endorse Bitcoin following the City of Miami commissions approval. The approval will allow Miami to implement Bitcoin usage legally.
The move will allow Miami to consider paying employees in Bitcoin and investing City treasuries into Bitcoin.
Suarez was quoted in an interview as saying “biggest story of the next few years.” when asked about how he feels about Bitcoin.
Musk Endorses Dogecoin “Toddler Hodler”
Tesla founder Elon Musk is no newbie when it comes to cryptocurrencies. The world’s richest man has been talking about DogeCoin for several weeks now. DogeCoin has enjoyed major success in price activity since Musk commented on the project.
Musk has yet to stop talking about DogeCoin. Earlier this week the billionaire tweeted about purchasing DogeCoin for his son. Musk stated in a tweet “Bought some Dogecoin for lil X, so he can be a toddler hodler”.
It seems like Musk is wasting little time getting his son into crypto. The toddler, whose name is ‘X Æ A-12’, will likely be one of the youngest crypto hodlers in the world. Perhaps one day DogeCoin may be worth something when X Æ A-12 is older.
Max Keiser Calls Oracle the Next Big Corporate to Buy into Bitcoin
Heisenberg Capital founder and cryptocurrency investor Max Keiser commented on who he thought would be the next big corporate to purchase Bitcoin.
Kesier recently tweeted that based on a source, he believed the next big Bitcoin investor would be Larry Ellison from Oracle.
Kaiser tweeted “SOURCE: Next big corporate #BTC buyer is Larry Ellison, Oracle”
The prediction is yet to come to fruition. However, the past month has seen the likes of Tesla entering the fray and purchasing Bitcoin.
Tesla became the second notable corporate to purchase Bitcoin, through crypto maximalist Elon Musk.
Musk becomes one of several high net worth individuals to openly invest in Bitcoin. Among these, billionaire entrepreneur Mark Cuban has also been openly advocating for cryptocurrencies after previously acknowledging that Bitcoin was better than gold.
The quote from Keiser could be big news if true and would see the likes of Oracle join Tesla and MicroStrategy in buying Bitcoin.
Ellison is set to be worth roughly $89 billion with a keen interest in the Fintech industry, which lends further credence that the tweet could be true.
