FROM CCN: Bitcoin Troll Rips Crypto at Davos: ‘Overhyped’ Blockchain is ‘No Better Than Excel Spreadsheet’
By CCN.com: Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies are the mother and father of all bubbles, and blockchain is nothing more than a “fancy database.” That’s what bitcoin-bashing New York University professor Nouriel Roubini said at the 2019 Blockchain Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.
Speaking on a one-person panel (perhaps so no one can challenge his anti-crypto FUD?), Roubini gloated over the current bear market. He insists that he was proven right in his rabid, longstanding opposition to bitcoin.

Ripple, a common name for the XRP digital token, currently boasts a market capitalization of almost $13 billion, however, Messari, a cryptocurrency data company, has suggested ripple’s market cap could be as much as $6 billion lower.
Ripple (XRP) has followed the wider cryptocurrency market lower over the last 12 months, losing some 80% of its value.
The circulation supply of ripple (XRP) is thought to be 41 billion according to CoinMarketCap.com, which tracks most major cryptocurrencies, but Messari has reported as much as 19.2 billion of that may be “illiquid or subject to significant selling restrictions”—suggesting its quoted market price may be wildly different from its actual value.
