Professional poker player Bill Perkins is the latest guest to join Jeff Gross on the Coin Rivet podcast.
The Texan hedge fund manager turned poker pro is now a huge supporter of cryptocurrencies and NFTs, notably Bitcoin and Ethereum.
In this week’s fascinating podcast episode, Perkins describes how he bought into CryptoPunks when they were worth $5,000 each before diving into WorldOfWomen.
“I kept buying more [WorldOfWomen], now I know how people get into baseball cards, you just have to have them,” Perkins said. “Then I began talking to the founders, they are very forward thinking about the IP and how it works. When you buy a WorldOfWomen NFT, you own it. That’s extremely powerful, so i bought even more.”
The conversation went onto the price of Bitcoin and Ethereum: “I would definitely take Bitcoin over Nasdaq, Ethereum will probably be $3,200 to $3,500. I’m a bigger buyer of ETH than Bitcoin, even though I think Bitcoin has better functionality.”
“A lot of people complain about the fees on Ethereum. ETH isn’t made to buy a soda, it’s intended to be used on purchasing $20,000 NFTs,” he added.
