In the interview with CNN, Mrs. Friedman offered optimism regarding the future of cryptocurrencies, stating “Do I think digital currency plays a role in the economy of the future, I think the answer is probably yes.” Mrs. Friedman added, “How it evolves and which of the cryptocurrencies may or may not be the one that ultimately gets embraced, I think that really the jury is still out on that.”

“But I do think the idea of a more globalized payments mechanism that’s more efficient than what we have today, that allows money to transfer cross country, and […] supports the internet economy,” said Mrs. Friedman. “It feels like it’s the right next step in the space of currency”

Such people do not allow themselves to talk too much in an interview. We can conclude that people with big money are trying to disperse the cryptocurrency-market.
