Every once in awhile, a person goes on Twitter and decides to either spill their guts, go on the attack or make bold predictions. Recently, one notable Silicon Valley insider went on an epic 21-hour tweetstorm where he talked about everything from the future of Bitcoin to America’s infrastructure. That Silicon Valley executive, Shervin Pishevar, has set the world on fire with his incredible Tweets. Below are some of the highlights from that Tweetstorm.
The Dow Will Fall 6,000 points
The first bold prediction made from Shervin Pishevar was that the Dow Jones Industrial Average would fall hard in 2018. His 6,000 point drop forecast would put the Dow in recession territory. If this prediction were to come true, then it would mark an end to the longest bull run in the Dow’s history.
Bitcoin Will Crash
The next prediction had to do with the big daddy cryptocurrency Bitcoin. Mr. Pishevar predicted that the crypto-coin would fall from its high of $20,000 to the $2,000 to $5,000 range. If he is correct, then that would mean that Bitcoin would drop almost 90% from its highs.
Silicon Valley Will No Longer Be The Center Of Tech
Perhaps one of the boldest predictions made by Shervin Pishevar was that Silicon Valley would no longer be the center of tech innovation. Instead, Mr. Pishevar believes that people will work remotely from the location of their choice. And that people will be able to collaborate, in multiple locations, when launching their start-up.
America Will Continue To Fall Behind In Infratstructure
Mr. Pishevar also talked about America’s crumbling infrastructure and pointed out how far ahead nations like China are when it comes to building up their transportation hubs. In fact, Mr. Pishevar pointed out one case where the Chinese were able to build an entire train station in just nine hours.
Family update! I’ve moved to Florida with my Dad (Papa is my best friend). With the kids off to college, I’m selling our historic Boggs-Shenson home in SF if anyone is looking for a great spot to raise a family! https://t.co/jjWn1Ot7Np pic.twitter.com/H4i2mPOC3z
