Twitter has been awash in controversy lately. And one of the biggest people to dust up the Twittershpere was none other than early Uber investor Shervin Pishevar. The Silicon Valley executive went on an incredible 21-hour Tweetstorm recently. During that time, Mr. Pishevar made some strange predictions. Below we will take a look at 5 notable predictions and see how they have performed during the year 2018.
A Crash Is Coming In the Dow
Shervin Pishevar was one of the first people to predict that there will be a big dip in the Dow. In fact, he was talking about a 5,000 point crash from the 2017 highs. So far, Mr. Pishevar’s prediction has been looking pretty good. The Dow has faltered and is looking to finish in the red. Now more and more people are talking about a crash in the markets.
Bitcoin Will Plummet
Back when Bitcoin was hitting $20,000, Shervin Pishevar predicted that the cryptocurrency will do a swan dive to around $2,000 to $5,000. This call was just about right on the money. Bitcoin did crash from $20,000 to around $6,000. And it looks like Bitcoin may fall below its lows before the year 2018 is done.
Silicon Valley is Done as the Tech Capital
One of the most shocking predictions is that Silicon Valley is done as the tech capital. Mr. Pishevar believes that tech companies will work in less expensive cities and coordinate with visual assistants from around the world. So far, this prediction seems to be coming true with more tech companies coming from unexpected places.
U.S. Infrastructure is in Trouble
Mr. Pishevar believes that America’s roads and bridges are crumbling and countries like China are pulling away when it comes to infrastructure building. This prediction is looking good as China continues to build entire cities in a matter of months while the U.S. continues to reduce infrastructure spending.
Uber is the Last Tech Giant
Shervin Pishevar believes that companies like Facebook, Google, Amazon and Apple are stifling competition. And that Uber will be the last mega-tech company to go public. This prediction looks really good. In 2018, we really haven’t seen any big tech companies come out of the start-up world.
Over the next couple of months, people will be watching these tweets to see which ones will come true. There is one thing for sure. And that’s Shervin Pishevar will not stop Tweeting his outlandish predictions any time soon.
