Billionaire VC Tim Draper Busts a Crypto Rhyme at Amsterdam Conference

Billionaire Venture Capitalist and crypto pundit Tim Draper is never far from the news, and as such has lived up to expectations with an on-stage interview and impromptu rap at a recent Dutch tech conference, reports Bloomberg.

His way out of tune crypto rap at the TNW Conference Europe 2018 Tech Conference at Westerpark in Amsterdam followed an on-stage interview. Sporting a bitcoin adorned purple tie he launched into his 3-minute rap to a bemused audience, singing:

“We want a new world order/we want to pay across the border,” the chorus went. “I just wanna be a Hodler on my Bitcoin hustle.”

Prior to his stage “performance,” he continued to promote bitcoin in typical Draper fashion ignoring the market’s current downturn. In an interview at the “Next Web” conference, he stuck to his recent position of bitcoin reaching $250,000 by 2022, suggesting that the market will regroup once the current halt on spending increases.

Draper has always backed Bitcoin since 2014, when he bought about 30,000 Bitcoins from a U.S. government auction, since investing in blockchain startups, including Tezos and Bancor. As such he has never been shy of interviews and predictions. His most recent, reported by CNBC, claimed bitcoin could be bigger than the internet, claiming.

”It’s bigger than the Iron Age, the Renaissance. It’s bigger than the Industrial Revolution. This affects the entire world and it’s going to be affected in a faster and more prevalent way than you ever imagined.”

Soundbites are very much the Draper style, a more recent claim from last month suggested:

“In five years you’re going to walk in and try and pay fiat for a Starbucks coffee, and the barista is going to laugh at you because they’re going to say, “What is this? Are you counting out pennies? Give me shells?”
