Bill Gates reveals his ' amazing’ views on cryptocurrency and Hyperloop


Bill Gates is not very happy with the technology jargon of recent years. Gates, the former CEO of Microsoft, who we know with his philanthropic and futurist identities, doesn't think very deeply about cryptocurrencies and Elon Musk's high-speed train project, Hyperloop. 

Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates, one of the world's most successful startups, who attended a question and answer event via Reddit, answered questions from the platform on Tuesday. Noting his thoughts on cryptocurrencies, Gates expressed discomfort at the fact that they are interestingly anonymous.

"The main feature of cryptocurrencies is privacy. I don't think this is a good thing. The ability of governments to block money laundering, tax evasion and terror financing is a good thing. Currently, cryptocurrencies are used to buy illegal purchases and other drugs, so it's a rare technology that causes direct deaths. I think the speculative wave around ICOs and cryptocurrencies is very risky in the long run."

Gates also announced his ideas for Hyperloop, Elon Musk's high-speed train capsule project, which aims to exceed long distances in considerable time. Gates, who made statements that cast a shadow over Musk's concept, does not trust the system:

"I think the private markets are filling the innovation in this area quite well. Electric cars and autonomous vehicles will be great things. Our foundation is currently conducting trials in Rwanda and Tanzania for the transport of medical supplies by drones. I'm not sure the Hyperloop project makes sense as a concept, it's very hard to make it safe”

Gates ' remarks relate to two key technological revolutions that have not fallen out of language in recent months. Gates, who is currently interested in the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, which he and his wife founded, is far from his position at Microsoft, now seems to want to stay away from the technology agenda in the modern sense. And what do you guys think of Gates ' statements?
