The ex director of PayPal Bill Harris is known for his scepticism and harsh comments aimed at Bitcoin. He even called it “the greatest scam in the history”. This time CNBC interviewed Harris to find out whether his opinion on the world’s #1 digital coin has changed.
According to the businessman, Bitcoin is supposed to be “instant, free, scalable, efficient, secure, globally accepted and useful”, and it fails to fulfill all of those characteristics. Harris believes that there is “no value” in BTC.
He has also mentioned that there is no need in solving the problem of Bitcoin scalability, because we don’t need Bitcoin at all.
“Look how difficult it is to get money from one country across the border to another. It’s slow, it’s expensive, it’s all those things. Agree. You don’t need Bitcoin, you don’t need XRP, you don’t need any of that to solve that problem. What you need is faster networks.”
Unlike many of his colleagues, Bill Harris has way more trust in conventional fiat currencies due to their relative stability which cannot be said about Bitcoin.
In conclusion he summed up his thoughts by saying:
“Bitcoin makes no revenue, no profitability.“
Frankly speaking, the current CEO of PayPal Dan Schulman agrees with Harris on this issue, although PayPal might change its opinion on BTC if it becomes more stable.
