Who exactly is this guy?
the amiable but pessimistic When Mati Greenspan was a senior market analyst for eToro, he rose to prominence as a commentator on the cryptocurrency market in outlets like Forbes, Bloomberg, and The Wall Street Journal. In 2019, he left eToro and founded research and advisory firm Quantum Economics on his own. For the past two years, he has been listed among the Top 100 Notable People in Blockchain by Cointelegraph.
The reason Greenspan is a lot less bolshie and provocative than some is likely due to the fact that he is personally responsible for his views, unlike the talking croissants and anime whales on Twitter. Greenspan’s account may not have the most followers (48,000), but it does provide knowledgeable market insights and alpha.
Because of his time spent as a market analyst in the 2000s and his “insider perspective” on the financial crisis, he has a slightly obsessive attitude toward cryptocurrencies.
In the next five to ten years, he says, we “have the power to completely displace the traditional finance industry.”
Mati Greenspan, a well-known figure in the cryptocurrency industry, recently revealed that he was bribed by his boss at eToro to join Twitter in 2012. The bribe came in the form of 1 BTC, which was a significant sum at the time and helped to draw Greenspan into the “crypto rabbit hole.”
Since joining the platform, Greenspan has built up a following of 48,000 people with his informed market insights and alpha analysis. He received a boost early on from Ran Neuner, who helped him crack the 10,000-follower mark.
While Greenspan may not have the largest Twitter account in the industry, his commentary on the market and the crypto space is highly valued by his followers. The unorthodox way in which he joined the platform, however, has raised eyebrows and sparked discussions about the role of bribes in the industry.
It remains to be seen how this revelation will impact Greenspan’s reputation and standing in the crypto community. However, it is clear that the 1 BTC bribe played a significant role in his journey and ultimate success on the social media platform.
