Every once in a while, a big name in the tech world goes on social media and creates a huge dust up. Well, one of the biggest social media events happened right on Twitter. And the big tech name behind the Twitstorm was early Uber investor Shervin Pishevar. During his 21-hour Twitstorm, Mr. Pishevar made a number of hair raising predictions. Here are some of the highlights from the social media blitz from Mr. Pishevar.
The Dow Will Collapse
One of the first predictions made by Shervin Pishevar was that the major US indexes, such as the Dow, would fall into bear market territory. Specifically, Mr. Pishevar said that the Dow would fall 6,000 points. If that prediction comes to past, we could see some of the largest decline, in the index, in the last decade.
Bitcoin Will Also Fall
The world’s largest cryptocurrency was also Mr. Pishevar’s crosshairs, either. In a later tweet, the tech titan predicted that Bitcoin would nosedive from its heights in 2017. This tweet actually turned out to be true since Bitcoin did indeed plummet from a high of $20,000 to the high $5,000 range.
Start-Ups Will Look Beyond Silicon Valley
Another shocking prediction from Shervin Pishevar stated that start-ups will look to other places to hang their shingle rather than Silicon Valley. Instead, Mr. Pishevar believes that tech start-ups will stay where they are and work remotely with their customers and their partners.
American Infrastructure is Falling Behind
Looking outside of his usual tech circles, Shervin Pishevar stated that the United States is being outclassed in the global infrastructure race. The Silicon Valley executive believes that other countries, such as China, will be able to outperform the United States when it comes to building out cities and transportation hubs.
These predictions marked the first time, in months. that Shervin Pishevar made any public statements. And these Tweets, from Mr. Pishevar, have been shared tens of thousands of time all over social media. As the months past, people will soon see which of these incredible predictions will come true.
