Author of “Currency Wars” Calls Bitcoin the Biggest Fraud in History

Bestselling author of Currency Wars, James Rickards, has called Bitcoin the biggest fraud in the history of humans.

James criticised cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, Ripple, Ethereum among other, claiming that they have inherent limitations.

He said few weeks back when Bitcoin rose above $8,000, people were thinking the bull has resurfaced until a “whale” sold a large portion of his BTC, causing the price to fall.

Bitcoin Owned By A Few

According to the bestselling author, less than 450 individuals a 20% share of the entire bitcoin market. He stressed that if these people decided to sell their shares of it, Bitcoin price fluctuate immediately, as it was noticed few days back.

“As Bitcoin proves in the horrific crash of 2017-2018, it may collapse like a house of cards,” he said.

He said Bitcoin as an asset, cannot offer the world anything more than speculation and the wide usage it receives among terrorists, scammers, gamblers, tax evaders. James furthered that BTC is unsustainable considering its power consumption level.

James also stressed the fact that Bitcoin system is ridden with theft, bankruptcy, fraud and hacking of all forms.

He said even if Bitcoin go higher, there is high possibility it crashes again.
