The Carlyle Group’s co-founder, David Rubenstein, says that the idea of the government stopping cryptocurrency from being something that investors want is unrealistic. He believes that cryptocurrency is here to stay. It’s not going away as “It’s clearly something that the market wants,†he said.

David Rubenstein Bullish About Crypto

David Rubenstein, co-founder and co-chairman of Carlyle’s Board of Directors, talked about bitcoin and the future of cryptocurrency in an interview with CNBC last week. He previously served as co-chief executive officer of The Carlyle Group, a private equity, asset management, and financial services corporation. In 2015, Carlyle was the world’s largest private equity firm by capital raised over the previous five years, according to the PEI 300 index.

Rubenstein said: “Crypto has come from nowhere to be a force in the market. It’s in effect a gold substitute for some. … It’s here to stay. Cryptocurrency is not going away, just like gold is not going away.†He added:

The Carlyle Group’s executive noted that cryptocurrency “has its ups and downs.†However, he emphasized: “that’s true of anything that’s relatively new, and I don’t think you are going to see anything like crypto going away and disappearing.â€

He continued: “It’s here and it’s here because people in the market want something other than just the traditional currencies that we have, and whether that’s right or wrong, it’s clearly something that the market wants.â€

Rubenstein emphasized that “If you go into cryptocurrency, you should expect big ups and downs and big fluctuations, and if you are not prepared for that, don’t go into cryptocurrency.â€

The crypto community welcomes Rubenstein’s comments. Michael Saylor, the pro-bitcoin CEO of the Nasdaq-listed company Microstrategy, which has amassed about 92 BTC so far, commented:
