Eric Schmidt remarked:
“Bitcoin is a remarkable cryptographic achievement… There is tremendous value in the ability to create something that cannot be duplicated in the digital world… The Bitcoin architecture, literally the ability to have these ledgers that cannot be replicated, is amazing progress. A lot of people will do business based on that.”
It should be noted that Schmidt made these priceless remarks when Bitcoin was still struggling for global acceptance. Though his stance on flagship crypto seemed unnoticed at the time, he’s one of those who paved his way to global notoriety.
