Shervin Pishevar, the co-founder of companies such as An investing firm and Virgin Hyperloop One is a well-known figure among the investment community, and throughout his career, he has been very outspoken regarding his principles, often utilizing his personal brand of forward-thought to identify and invest in emerging markets.
In recent years, with the rise of social media, Shervin Pishevar has consistently taken to platforms such as Twitter, in order to convey his personal perspectives, while also sparking serious debate amongst investors and businessmen. Recently, after a brief absence, Shervin Pishevar rejoined the Twitter universe, releasing a flurry of posts that covered topics such as the fall of corporate unicorns in the US, the growing debate regarding Bitcoin, the end of inflation exportation, and the condition of America’s present infrastructure.
According to Shervin Pishevar, in the United States, there are currently five unicorns that include Apple, Alphabet (Google), Amazon, Facebook, and Microsoft, which continue to grow each year. While these companies have large consumer bases, as well as great rapport with the masses, the nature of their business, regarding their acquisition practices, has benefited them at the expense of American innovation. Many upstart companies with groundbreaking potential, are currently being swallowed up by these unicorns, making the ability to compete on the market virtually impossible for most. While this practice has been the major source of their growth in recent years, in Shervin Pishevar’s estimation, this enormous amount of power will eventually lead to their demises.
Bitcoin has been one of the more polarizing subjects to garner the attention of both the professional, as well as the neophyte investor. Several months ago, Bitcoin and Bitcoin investors were riding high based on its meteoric rise, seeing its price reach close to 20k, before a subsequent nosedive. While this has been the cause of much concern for those seeking to invest, Shervin Pishevar believes that the downward spiral is only temporary. Over the course of the next two years, the price of Bitcoin will restabilize and begin to see growth, but probably not at the same rate as it did months ago.
