0 comment

Former CTO of Coinbase Balaji Srinivasan I believe A Sovereign Default Is “Very High” Likely to Occur Within Months, Sending Bitcoin Price Soaring.

He had clarified a comment he made about when a fiat currency crisis could occur during his talk at Consensus 2023, but the community misunderstood it.

He told the conference that with governments printing trillions of dollars, sovereign defaults were only a matter of time and would ultimately lead to a financial crisis of unprecedented magnitude.

Srinivasan said such a crisis was the reason behind his March prediction that Bitcoin would hit $1 million in 90 days.

During the meeting, he said:

“Does it take 900 days or 90 months? It’s possible, but not 100% likely.”

Some in the cryptocurrency community misunderstood his comments and took to social media to accuse Srinivasan of abandoning a $1 million Bitcoin bet.

However, he quickly replied that he was not backing down from his predictions, revealing that the 10% chance was “very high.”

He tweeted:

“10% is very high and worthy of attention. And some believe that the likelihood of a sovereign default is at an all-time high.”

According to Srinivasan, there is a 10% chance of a fiat currency crisis in the coming months. There is a 70% chance that it will happen within a few years. 19% in decades, 1% in hundreds of years.

He added that the market also agreed with his analysis, making the likelihood of a fiat currency crisis an all-time high.

The entrepreneur also said he plans to make another bet soon, related to Bitcoin price and sovereign default.
