Brian Armstrong Predicts That Upcoming Financial Crisis Will Lead to Mainstream Crypto Adoption

During a recent Bloomberg interview, Coinbase’s Brian Armstrong weighed in on the future of crypto, claiming that mass adoption of cryptocurrencies will happen if a few years when a lot of countries are going to face harsh economic conditions.

Armstrong states that plenty of developed countries are already hopping on the crypto train and moving closer to introducing a regulatory framework.

He also calls ICOs an important innovation for crowdfunding but admits that there are some quality issues along with the legal uncertainty.
