Vinny Lingham: Bitcoin Needs to Get to $3,000 Level
South African internet entrepreneur and Bitcoin popular evangelist Vinny Lingham speaks with Cointelegraph about the Bitcoin scene in South Africa.
When will Bitcoin go mainstream?
CoinTelegraph: What inspired you to get involved with Bitcoin?
Vinny Lingham: I first heard of Bitcoin in 2010 in a news article and I was very dismissive of it, regretfully so. I was more inspired to get involved when I saw how the marketplaces were developing and after I started Gyft, I realized it was another way of improving payments, globally.
CT: Do you think Bitcoin will ever reach true mainstream status, or do you think it will always remain something of a fringe currency?
