Tim Draper is one of the most popular cryptocurrency investors in the world. He is in the same category as people like Mike Novogratz and the Winklevoss twins. These people started investing in cryptocurrencies early on and they’ve invested a significant amount of money in the industry over time. Even as the cryptocurrency market suffers a decline, Draper remains bullish about the nascent industry. Draper Talks About Digital Currencies During the 10th anniversary of Bitcoin, Draper was featured in an op-ed piece on CoinDesk.
