BitMEX CEO Arthur Hayes has spoken out in favor of Bitcoin, saying that the hallmark cryptocurrency is “society’s best hope for a private form of electronic money.”
The company is a cryptocurrency exchange and derivative trading platform. It is owned and operated by HDR Global Trading Limited, which is registered in Seychelles and has offices worldwide.
In a blog post published before the weekend, Haye’s latest thoughts on the industry entitled ‘Two sides of the coin: the bifurcated near-future of money’ suggested that the future of Bitcoin is ensured, commenting:
“Even in the face of the various centralized forces currently being marshaled: humanity’s bifurcated monetary future will be better than our monopoly monetary past, as some money becomes more convenient while other money becomes far more private.”
Hayes further suggested that until now, monetary systems had been dominated by monetary monopoly and a bifurcated system with Bitcoin representing the cryptocurrency industry would be the best hope for the future, despite the proliferation of alternatives such as Ether, Ripple, and others.
According to the BitMEX boss, another advantage that Bitcoin possesses when squared up against others is its security, having never been successfully hacked in its ten years of use. Painting a rather utopian picture of a background in which cryptocurrency can flourish, he went on to say that he felt Bitcoin could create an environment where individuals can work together towards a common end.
Hayes’ positive comments were made only weeks before he expressed his views about Bitcoin at the end of 2018, suggesting that it would continue its volatile bearish trend in 2019.
