Orlando Bravo, the co-founder of American private equity firm Thoma Bravo has batted in favor of cryptocurrencies, predicting a glowing future for digital assets. Bravo revealed his crypto-related projections at CNBC's Delivering Alpha conference held earlier this week. His private equity company recently participated in fundraiser for crypto exchange FTX Trading. Bravo firmly believes that these decentralised cryptocurrencies will witness widespread adoption in the near future. While batting for Bitcoin, the investor revealed that he himself has invested in the world's largest cryptocurrency.
“How could you not love crypto? Crypto is just a great system. It's frictionless. It's decentralized. And young people want their own financial system. So, it is here to stay,” Bravo said in his address.
Addressing concerns around crypto, Bravo highlighted that the technology of blockchain, that supports the crypto ecosystem, is not only super powerful, but also comes with better use cases than data-based software.
“For me, it's pretty simple. More people are going to use in the future than today, and it's going to be more established. Institutions are just beginning to go there, and once that happens, I think it will increase significantly over the years. I'm very bullish,” Bravo said.
