Rohan Advani a finance professional in dubai featured on a Gulfnews interview recently and told the reporter that, he invested in Bitcoin Because his son in law a Bitcoin Trader in Australia inspired him. On the possible risks he could be plunging himself into by investing in Bitcoins Mr. Rohan said,
“ The world currently seeks an alternative for the dollar, gold and Bitcoin are the only true best alternative to the dollar since they are beyond government regulations and control. He continued by saying “Bitcoin and Gold has no politics attached to them since the government has no direct regulations on them”
However not all the investors showed a high level of optimism about the future of Bitcoin with some investors opting for a controlled volume of investment should Bitcoin prices falls. Mr. Henry Cavalho a financial Executive based in abu Dhabi highlights that it’s still very risky to invest in Bitcoin Currently but believes that within 10-15 years Bitcoin will be much stable.

A couple of the investors believes that Bitcoin could crash anytime causing massive loss in pre invested capital. The investors say Bitcoin might not see prices beyond the current heights Bitcoin has reached.
