‘Don’t buy Bitcoin it is worthless’ said economist Samy Dana when BTC cost R $ 752.39

G1 economist and columnist Samy Dana is one of the main ‘unbelievers’ about Bitcoin and, over the years, has been criticizing the main cryptocurrency on the market.

However, despite Dana’s criticism and advisor warning investors about the ‘danger’ of investing in BTC, the main cryptocurrency in the market broke another appreciation record and reached R $ 100 thousand per unit.

Since 2014 at least the economist has been declaring his mantra “I don’t recommend investing in Bitcoin”.

So to congratulate all those who did not follow Dana’s advice and bet on Bitcoin, Cointelegraph recalled some statements by the economist and what was the price of Bitcoin in each of these moments.
