Roubini : Crypto Is the Mother and Father of All Bubbles

Nouriel Roubini at Salt Conference in NY: Crypto Is the Mother and Father of All Bubbles

Economist and notorious cryptocurrency critic Nouriel Roubini said that “crypto is the mother and father of all bubbles” at the Salt conference in New York. CNBC reported on Roubini’s declarations on May 9.

During the conference, Roubini also reportedly said that bitcoin (BTC) and other crypto assets should not be called cryptocurrencies. According to him, “cryptocurrency is totally a misnomer” since “to be a currency, you have to be a unit of account, valuable and a scalable means of payment."

Roubini also addressed bitcoin’s scalability, stating that while credit cards are capable of thousands of transactions per second, bitcoin’s network can only manage seven. He also claimed to have never witnessed a level of manipulation comparable to what is currently reported by the cryptocurrency market.
