3. Famous Author Robert Kiyosaki Waits For Bitcoin To Hit $1,100
Robert Kiyosaki, the author of Rich Dad Poor Dad, is back with a fresh take on Bitcoin. Kiyosaki and Sharon Lechter co-authored the 1997 book Rich Dad Poor Dad. It has spent more than six years as a best seller in the New York Times. The book has sold more than 32 million copies worldwide in more than 51 different languages.
He tweeted a “Rich Dad” lesson recently, saying he will be waiting for Bitcoin to hit $1,100 and see how it reacts to decide if he would buy more. On Twitter, many individuals disagreed with Kiyosaki’s prediction that bitcoin would ever reach $1,100. Some believed that the author of Rich Dad Poor Dad mistyped and meant $11,000.
The renowned investor has been predicting that when Bitcoin’s price bottoms out, he will purchase more of the digital currency. He began predicting that Bitcoin will bottom out at $20K when it started to decline significantly in recent months. He repeatedly updated his predicted bottom price when BTC’s price fell further.
