The founder of Bitcoin Advisory says billionaires are catching on to Bitcoin. Pierre Rochard made his remarks in response to a New York Times op-ed entitled “Abolish Billionaires,” penned by columnist Farhad Manjoo, who questions why anyone should have a billion dollars, and why anyone should be proud to brandish their billions in the face of worldwide suffering.

Rochard is a New York-based Bitcoin advisor to institutional investors, and says the world’s largest cryptocurrency has key advantages that make it an attractive asset class for the uber rich.

Billionaires are quickly realizing that it is time to rotate out of assets which can easily be plundered by the populist mob, into an asset which is much, much harder to seize – bitcoins.

International currency exchange provider Mercury FX says Ripple’s xRapid is the future, powering faster, cheaper and more secure payments.

1/1 We've made our largest payments across RippleNet using #XRP – 86,633.00 pesos (£3,521.67) from the U.K. to Mexico in seconds.
