Alex Tapscott on the impact of PayPal accepting payment through Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies
In a recent InvestorIntel interview, Tracy Weslosky spoke with Alex Tapscott, Managing Director of the Digital Asset Group at Ninepoint Partners LP about his critically acclaimed best-seller, Blockchain Revolution, and PayPal’s new “Checkout with Crypto” service that enables users to use Bitcoin to pay for goods and services.
Mr. Tapscott is the co-author of Blockchain Revolution, which has been translated into more than 15 languages and has sold more than 500,000 copies worldwide. In 2017, he co-founded the Blockchain Research Institute (BRI), a global think-tank investigating blockchain strategies, opportunities, and use-cases. In this InvestorIntel interview, which may also be viewed on YouTube (click here to subscribe to the InvestorIntel Channel), Mr. Tapscott went on to say, “it is a big leap forward for Bitcoin…I think PayPal is probably not going to be the last company that takes a step in this direction.”
In the interview, Mr. Tapscott suggested what people can do to feel more comfortable about cryptocurrencies and understand how Bitcoin has set off a spark that has captured a lot of people imaginations and today is worth over a trillion dollars and “is benefitting more than gold in this environment where inflation expectation is high.”
