Shervin Pishevar: A Top Business Figure in the United States

Shervin Pishevar had many thoughts about the economy and where the United States stood in the world during a Twitter rant in February 2018. He spent 21 hours talking about Bitcoin, Elon Musk and why the startup landscape is likely going to change over the next several years.

Bitcoin Will Experience a Period of Depreciation

According to Shervin Pishevar, those who hold Bitcoin could experience significant losses in the near future. He projects that the coin will fall to as little as $2,000 before it eventually finds support and starts to rebound. If those who have Bitcoin are lucky, it will only fall to about $5,000 a coin before going up again.

Elon Musk Is a True Visionary

In a period during which the United States lacks long-term thinking, Elon Musk is someone who dares to think bold thoughts about the future. This is what Shervin Pishevar had to say about the man who is trying to make it faster and easier to get between cities or from Earth to the Moon. Shervin Pishevar believes that the United States will not retain its status as a global superpower unless it starts to think longer than a few months or years ahead.

What It Means To Be an Entrepreneur Will Change

If Shervin Pishevar is right, being an entrepreneur has become more of an idea than something that you actually do. This change of perspective has come about largely because of technological advances that make it easier to start a company from anywhere. It is likely that companies will be founded both internationally and throughout the United States outside of Silicon Valley. As technology continues to evolve, California may find that it is no longer sacred ground for those looking for funding or connections to boost the profile of their startups.
