On September 3, the co-founder of the Morgan Creek Digital investment fund, Anthony Pompliano, tweeted that the market dominance of Bitcoin has reached the 70-percent level.
He stated that the most dominant coin in the market is getting stronger, despite the recent fluctuations.
Bitcoin market dominance is at 70%.— Pomp 🌪 (@APompliano) September 3, 2019
The most dominant cryptocurrency continues to get stronger.
John McAfee is another permanent Bitcoin bull that believes in the ultimate BTC price surge no matter what. Recently, when the Bitcoin price went down and dipped below the $10,000 mark, McAfee twice urged his followers to stay calm and not to pay attention to brief fluctuations of the asset’s price.
The community does not believe in altcoins
Some members of the crypto community took Pompliano’s tweet as offence against altcoins. Besides, in one of his recent tweets ‘Pomp’ indeed made a prediction that all altcoins would eventually die.
Nice! Let alts die right? Btc maxis ftw! Dont think about the fact why btc reached ath last time. Wasnt because of alts also. No, btc only ftw! Let them die! Let everybody in alts get more rekt and loose interest for crypto!— Crypto Henkie (@CryptoHenk) September 3, 2019
Others have taken Pompliano’s side regarding altcoins.
As expected, Bitcoin investors only welcome it when the Bitcoin dominance in the market will increase higher than the current 70-percent level.
95% is what we need 💪💪— Vivek (@Vivek4real_) September 3, 2019
‘XRP is ready to blast off’ soon
As a counter argument to Pompliano, a Twitter user @CryptoWelson offers a screenshot of a chart that shows that XRP is going to show a massive rise at some point this year.
Pompliano suggests Satoshi should get a Nobel Prize
Earlier today, Anthony Pompliano went as far as suggesting that the mysterious Bitcoin creator, Satoshi Nakamoto, should be granted a Nobel Prize for inventing a global currency that proves its status without engaging people in wars with each other.
Satoshi should win the Nobel Peace Prize.— Pomp 🌪 (@APompliano) September 3, 2019
We finally have a currency that can assume global reserve status without anyone having to engage in violence.
The community did not take this statement enthusiastically, though.
The Nobel peace prize is completely worthless...Obama got it for dropping bombs/missiles while ‘at war’ with eight countries...zero credibility— foreverlost45 (@matchbox982) September 3, 2019
The entire Ripple team should get a Nobel Peace Prize for all of their generous donations to the educational system and non profit organizations.— Digital Asset Conductor (@AssetConductor) September 3, 2019
