Baseball Great Jose Canseco Predicts $10,000 Bitcoin By 2018

Former Major League Baseball star Jose Canseco is apparently a big believer in blockchain and cryptocurrencies.

The 53-year-old athlete took to Twitter last night and, in a series of posts, stated several bold beliefs – including a prediction that the price of bitcoin will be “at $10k by New Years[sic] Eve.”

Canseco, who retired from baseball in 2001, has long been known for using Twitter to express his blunt and, at times, out-of-the-ordinary views. Previously, he informed followers that he can paint any person’s “dragon essence” perfectly and that mermaids don’t need mermen “because mermaids are a hermaphroditic species.”

Not stopping with the price prediction, the former Oakland A’s outfielder went on to say that, in his view, the technology is on the cusp of going mainstream for many people – even for “morons,” according to the baseball great.

From there, Cancesco issued another prediction: that the next several years will see countries becoming more closely linked by way of digital finance systems. Blockchain, he suggested, would play a key role in this future.

Canseco’s final recommendation: “don’t be late to the party.’

“Soon this opportunity will cease to be one,” he concluded.
