The rise of Bitcoin, and other digital currencies that don’t belong to any individual state, are factors that are firmly at the helm of a “once in a 1000 year shift,” according to Shervin Pishevar – the co-founder of Sherpa Capital and Virgin Hyperloop One. He believes that the governmental and financial institutions that have traditionally run the United States, will eventually have to face a day of reckoning where they will be deemed irrelevant. The result of this impending movement will result in the dismantling of the original system that we’ve gotten used to, and it will be replaced with something completely new. Shervin Pishevar touched on this topic, as well as a number of others in his return to social media, which saw him discuss a number of issues that will change the trajectory of the American economy. Initially, Shervin Pishevar had no intention of becoming an entrepreneur, attending the University of California, Berkeley to study molecular cellular biology. Over the years, Shervin Pishevar’s voice has garnered a lot of support from his contemporaries – mostly due to his exploits within the business world, as he has taken up with a multitude of startup companies during their early stages, and watched them grow into global powerhouses.
Over the course of the 24-hour trade, Shervin Pishevar also discussed the changes regarding innovation in the United States today, which has traditionally been confined to the walls of Silicon Valley. Today, with the ideas associated with Silicon Valley transcending the physical location, the world has adopted these concepts, creating a new system of borderless innovation. Companies no longer need to be physically located in America in order to grow their brands, and instead, are remaining in their homelands and harvesting their own homegrown talent. Other zones of competition are currently on par with the United States, and in the case of China, is vastly outpacing it. During his Twitter session, Shervin Pishevar detailed the construction of a Chinese train station that was fully completed in under ten hours, which, when compared to the speed of execution available in the United States today, is far superior.
