[Ethereum also mentioned]
In an interview, Icahn was asked about Ethereum (ETH) and expressed the following views.
“The Ethereum blockchain has two roles. The first is the payment system, and the second is the storage of value. Ethereum and Bitcoin are different things, and for me, Bitcoin is just a store of value.”
Icahn’s view is similar to that of a recent Goldman Sachs report.
According to the report, “Ethereum, a representative of the digital economy, has the potential to exceed Bitcoin as a means of storing value.” It is supported and can dominate the financial system in the future”.
