The founder of Icahn Enterprises, Carl Icahn, in an interview with Bloomberg, spoke about the planned “large-scale” investments in cryptocurrencies.
In the past, the bitcoin skeptic noted that he looks at digital gold as a means of saving, and at Ethereum – including as a payment system.
He is also confident that most of the issued digital assets will disappear over time, but in general” in one form or another ” they will remain.
“Currently, I do not own cryptocurrencies and I do not think that it is necessary to buy them now. I’m looking into how Icahn Enterprises can “seriously” get involved in this. These assets will remain in one form or another, ” Aikan said.
The billionaire stressed that cryptocurrencies are gaining popularity due to rising inflation, and any criticism of them is ” in some way wrong.”
“What is the value of the dollar? Its only value is the ability to use it for paying taxes, ” Haykan explained.
The entrepreneur refused to give a direct answer to the clarifying question about the amount of investment.
“A billion dollars, a billion and a half dollars, something like that. I won’t say for sure,” he explained.
