Morgan Creek CEO: sell Amazon shares, buy bitcoin

Morgan Creek Capital CEO Mark Yusko said that bitcoin is the next groundbreaking technology, and that it is currently the greatest wealth-creation opportunity there is. At the same time, he called Amazon shares “dead money for a decade”.

Morgan Creek Capital is known for investing $5 million in Google in 1996. At the time, Google was the sixteenth-most used search engine and not known by many. Later on, this investment turned into $200 million.

BRICS can create its own cryptocurrency

BRICS countries (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) are considering a possibility to launch a payment system based on cryptocurrency. It would be used for mutual payments between countries – association members.

The idea was introduced by Kirill Dmitriev, the head of the Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF) at the BRICS forum in Brazil. According to him, the members of the association's business council supported this suggestion.

Bitcoin keeps falling. When will this stop?

Bitcoin will test again the resistance of $8,600 level, and in case of breaking it, it will carry on falling, according to Aayush Jindal, NewsBTC analyst. The closest targets are marks of $8,500 и $8,300. Jindal thinks that for a full turn, the price needs to settle over $8,880.
