Back in October of 2018, as Bitcoin discovered itself above $6,000, Soulja"Drako" Boy,'' the rapper of"Crank This" celebrity, published a banger simply titled"Bitcoin." From the bit of music, a course in Soulja's Young Drako album, '' the Chicago-based artist awakens fire, so to talk concerning the world's very first cryptocurrency.
As many initially assumed that Soulja was planning to lambast the crypto asset, the rapper didn't. Instead, Drako went on to reference crypto's"Lambo civilization," quipping that foreign (automobiles ) sit in his drive. He even made a reference of Litecoin, while hinting at his dependence to assessing Blockfolio incessantly. It is very likely the Soulja's lyrics were so fantastical, made in an effort to garner some semblance of clout. However, the simple fact that he did much more than name-drop Bitcoin was optimistic yet.
However, just months later, he's seemingly turned his back towards cryptocurrencies.
In an interview with Cheddar, an up-and-coming Business Outlet, '' the tided-up Soulja, today the proud showrunner of a semi-business, talked about Tesla, flying carsalong with other technological advancements, also Bitcoin.
The artist noted that"it's a gamble," before adding that the prospective returns are lackluster, as too many people know of Bitcoin now.
Weird how Soulja is enamored with futuristic concepts, like Tesla's innovations, flying automobiles, esportsrecreational bud, but against a paradigm-shifting fintech creation.
The Bitcoin Renegers
Soulja isn't the only crypto enthusiast to own reneged on Bitcoin, as it had been. In an interview with MarketWatch, Finman, who abstained from college in pursuit of becoming an entrepreneur, explained that the largest cryptocurrency is"dead"
Finman chalked his inflammatory comment to the fact that Bitcoin's neighborhood is"too fragmented," likely touching on the amount of hard forks which have befallen the network and its spawn. The entrepreneur, famous for his rambunctious social media customs, elaborated:
"There is tons of infighting I simply don't think that it will last... It might have a bull market or two left inside , but long-term, its lifeless."
Interestingly, the teenage investor included that he sees possible in Ethereum and ZCash, touting their revolutionary offerings, namely intelligent contracts and privacy. But, he'd fire a shot Litecoin, noting that the Charlie Lee-backed job is all about to disappear, exactly like the Sun setting in the horizon. Finman made it crystal clear that Litecoin will not rise tomorrow .
