The experts’ opinion on investing in BitcoinThe journalists wanted to explore and learn about the reasons that lead people to discover this world or the dangers it holds. The program contacted psychologist Antonio Gijón, who assured that cryptocurrencies are generating a great addiction among society.
«It is similar to gambling, pornography and online shopping; it is something instantaneous and with rapid changes, and the attraction of the digital is always a very important plus, so it has all the criteria to become potentially addictive,» concludes the specialist.
False hopes of becoming a millionaireEconomist Juan Carlos Galindo was also interviewed by the program to know first-hand the opinion of an expert in another field. Galindo emphasized that it is directly said that bitcoin can make you a millionaire, but also lose everything one has.
«You cannot recommend something that can ruin people in just one minute. The digital currency is not supervised and is not owned by anyone.» Regarding the disclosures on social networks, the economist believes that they usually respond to the profile of young and attractive people.
The price of Bitcoin went from below US$ 30,000 last Tuesday, July 20, to trade at almost US$ 39,000 this week. This is a rise of 30% in a few days, although still well below the highs it reached back in April when it was worth more than US$ 65,000.
He also explained again that as long as mining is not environmentally friendly, Tesla will not accept payments with this currency. On the other hand, he mentioned that it has some Ethereum and Dogecoin (although much less than Bitcoin).
«I love memes and dogs,» he added, in reference to Dogecoin which, let’s remember, was born as a joke to cryptocurrencies and became the sixth cryptocurrency (if we do not include Tether) with a market capitalization of more than US$ 28 billion.
Musk referred to the saying that the simplest solution is often the right one and added that someone once explained to him that actually the most ironic solution is often the right one. Musk said that he would go further and that his theory is that the best joke is usually the right one.
