"Fintech professor/expert" article from Jan 2016, saying "RIP Bitcoin, its time to move on.." (BTC < $500)!!

The Author:
Vivek Wadhwa (Twitter @wadhwa) is Distinguished Fellow and professor at Carnegie Mellon University Engineering at Silicon Valley and a director of research at Center for Entrepreneurship and Research Commercialization at Duke. His past appointments include Stanford Law School, the University of California, Berkeley, Harvard Law School, and Emory University.
When he wrote this article in Jan 2016 the Bitcoin price was under $500. Within 18 months it rose to $5000.
One of main bits of "evidence" this guy used was the fact that *one of the senior developers of BTC had sold all his coin's and hence Bitcoin was doomed to failure. etc. etc.
This really shows just how little some of the Fintech and Tech "experts" understand Bitcoin, it community, as well as the emotions behind it buyers and sellers, and of course - its future.
