Cobra does not trust american bitcoin research


Co-founder of and, Cobra, is convinced that the US National Security Agency (NSA) has penetrated into bitcoin and other open source projects provided that the agency “does its job well” and made it clear that he does not have faith in american bitcoin research.

“For this reason, I do not trust bitcoin research from American universities and American companies such as Blockstream, and I always check the statements in these labors,” said Cobra.

In a recent series of tweets, the co-founder of also responded to critics of Warren Buffett, Bill Gates and Charlie Munger with the first cryptocurrency and shared other interesting thoughts.

“Then, when Warren Buffett, Bill Gates and Charlie Munger will be dead for a long time, the rating of the richest people of Forbes will be headed by anonymous personalities using pseudonyms, as anonymity will define a world in which private capital is almost completely stored in bitcoin,” he said.

Cobra also added that Monero sacrifices anonymity parameters for further scaling, which in the long run will make this asset less competitive in the context of privacy than bitcoin.

In addition, the co-founder of is confident that the minimally viable implementation of the cryptocurrency without further changes to the protocol or hardpoints can be of great value.

Cobra also suggested that the cost of bitcoin could never reach $19,000.

“I wonder what people think that put their savings in bitcoin at around $19,000 when we tell them it’s a good saving tool,” Cobra asked rhetorically.

CIO of the hedge fund BlockTower Capital Ari Paul answered him in a comic form:

“In Venezuela, they probably think – this is not such a big volatility, and in Russia, it is better to lose 60% than to confiscate 100%,” he wrote.
