Co-founder of monobank: Bitcoin isn’t going to disappear

Monobank co-founder Oleg Gorokhovsky owns a large portfolio of bitcoins. The entrepreneur wrote about this on his Facebook page.

“I don’t like to make predictions. But Tesla’s disclosure of investing $1.5 billion in bitcoin finally convinced me that bitcoin was not going to disappear anywhere. I have a fairly large portfolio of bitcoins for a long time and I recommend you to buy it too,” the businessman wrote.

Gorokhovsky also stressed that he shares the most positive forecasts for the value of BTC. He believes that the price of the first cryptocurrency will hit the $100,000 level in 2021 or 2022.
