Jim Messina – a key adviser to former US President Barack Obama – thinks blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies are among “the most exciting developments of our lifetime.”
The American is highly bullish on bitcoin, saying he is ready to bet his Porsche that it will once again reach $60,000.
In a recent interview for Fox News, Messina predicted that today’s society will be remembered by two things: living in the time of COVID-19 and reshaping the financial system with the help of blockchain technology and digital assets.
The American described himself as “incredibly bullish” on the industry, particularly bitcoin. He admitted using the ongoing bear market as an opportunity to increase his exposure to the leading cryptocurrency. Asked about its future valuation, Messina said he is willing to bet his Porsche that BTC will skyrocket to $60,000 in the years to come.
Known as “The Obama White House’s Fixer,” the 52-year-old recently shifted from politics to the world of crypto. He joined BlockchainCom as a key adviser in 2021, and the firm has achieved some significant milestones since then. CEO Kasselman said much of the platform’s success in Europe and the USA is thanks to Messina’s efforts.
Apart from Barack Obama, he has advised numerous other prominent politicians throughout his career. Some top names include Italy’s previous PM, Matteo Renzi, ex-Argentinean President Mauricio Macri, and former UK PM Theresa May.
