There are more than 7.3 billion people on this planet with trillions of opinions in their mind. Some of  them are rational, while some are just simply irrational. The world, in the last 20 years has changed much rapidly than it did in the last century, especially on the technology front. Bitcoin a.k.a the biggest cryptocurrency in terms of price, volume and  popularity is one such entity in the chaos of change that has managed to grab a lot of eyeballs and yes, opinions as well. As the heat in the cryptocurrency market is now building for yet another bull season, we thought to share some of the expert's opinion on what they have to say on Bitcoin/Cryptocurrency which we believe, will be driving the bull  run this season. So, here is a list of people who had sweet and bitter  opinions on cryptocurrencies.

And hey, if they beg  to differ from your opinion, it's a democratic world. Freedom of  expression isn't just written on books, it's practiced too.

1. Donald J. Trump - President Of United States Of America

I  am not a fan of Bitcoin and other Cryptocurrencies, which are not  money, and whose value is highly volatile and based on thin air.  Unregulated Crypto Assets can facilitate unlawful behavior, including  drug trade and other illegal activity....— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 12, 2019

Well, seems like the  supreme leader of the biggest economy of the world has a different say  on Bitcoin and many other cryptocurrencies.

2. John McAfee - Founder Of McAfee Associates (Mc Afee AntiVirus)

When  I predicted Bitcoin at $500,000 by the end of 2020, it used a model  that predicted $5,000 at the end of 2017. BTC has accelerated much  faster than my model assumptions. I now predict Bircoin at $1 million by  the end of 2020. I will still eat my dick if wrong.— John McAfee (@officialmcafee) November 29, 2017

This tweet is from  the year 2017, which can be considered as a bit old. However, in his  recent interview, this is what he had to say.

"Bitcoin is at the mid 10's and people worry. LMFAO!! Why do you pay attention to weekly fluctuations? Look at the past few months FFS! It's rising drastically. I'm still positive about my $1 mil BTC price by the end of 2020. Alt coins like MTC and Apollo will rise ten times more."

Seems like he is still pretty confident on his bets on Bitcoin.

3. Bill Gates - Founder & CEO Of Microsoft Company

The Strongest Believer Of Bitcoin - Bill Gates

The video is 16.50 Minutes long. However Bill Gates shows his full support for the Bitcoin and  other cryptocurrencies from the word 'GO'. He went on the record to say that,

"Bitcoin is better than currency in that you don't have to be physically in the same place and, of course, for large transactions, currency can get pretty  inconvenient. Bitcoin is exciting because it shows how cheap it can be."

4. Eric Schmidt - Former CEO Of Google, Former Chairman Of Google

Google’s Schmidt: Bitcoin is a remarkable cryptographic achievement

The video clearly shows his positive approach towards cryptocurrency. He even said,

"Bitcoin is a remarkable cryptographic achievement and the ability to create  something that is not duplicable in the digital world has enormous value".

5. Warren Buffet - CEO of Berkshire Hathaway

Warren Buffett, the man known for his brilliant investment plans and ethics has been very  skeptical on the future of Bitcoin. He even went on to say that Bitcoin is

"probably rat poison squared".

So the scores are 2-3. 2 against  Bitcoin and 3 in favor of Bitcoin.

6. Arun Jaitley - Former Finance Minister Of India

India is a country of 1.3 Billion people that holds big potential for  the growth of Bitcoin. It is also Asia's fastest-growing economy. And  when the late Finance Minister of that country goes on record to declare  Bitcoin as invalid and not a legal tender, the Government of India's  view on Bitcoin becomes pretty straight forward. They don't support it.

So the scores are now 3-3.

3 for Bitcoin and 3 against Bitcoin.

Well, the scores can go on and on. The tussle can oscillate on either side. What really matters is how much risk you want to take as an investor. Few governments are dead against Bitcoin like America and India and then on the other side, we have Governments like Japan and South Korea who are considering it as next-gen innovation. The same difference in opinion is amongst tech innovators, stock market investors and everyone. But it is only time that will tell us who's opinion stood its ground. Till then, happy trading.
