Bitcoin has had a troubled start to 2019 with many predicting the long-running bitcoin bear market, which has seen the bitcoin price fall by some 80% over the last 12 months, could run on well into this year.
Not all are predicting doom and gloom for bitcoin, however. And now the chief executive of microblogging site Twitter and payments processor Square, Jack Dorsey, has repeated his prediction that bitcoin will “probably” become the internet’s “native currency.”
This isn’t the first time the often controversial Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey has said he expects bitcoin to continue growing.
Dorsey, who has previously talked up the potential of bitcoin and decentralized cryptocurrencies, was speaking to podcaster Joe Rogan in a wide-ranging interview that covered bitcoin, blockchain, free speech, and the formation of Twitter and Square.
