Economist Nouriel Roubini and former risk analyst Nassim Taleb took aim at crypto at the CoinGeek conference this week, while the always controversial Craig Wright boasted that the BSV blockchain was on track to hit billions of transactions a second.
Taleb, the author of best-selling economic books Black Swan and Skin in the Game, was a controversial addition to the lineup of the CoinGeek Conference in Zurich and came under fire on social media for giving BSV legitimacy.
Roubini meanwhile, offered a “greatest hits” version of his of attacks against crypto, familiar from crypto conferences prior to the pandemic.
“There is no reliability, no regulation, no AML, no KYC. [Crypto] is used by terrorists, money launderers, human traffickers, criminals, tax evaders.”
Taleb is gone. Calvin is going to brainwash him even more thoroughly at the Coingeek conference next week. He will be wined and dined and schmoozed and very soon he will be saying “Craig is Satoshi”.
