There is a lot of speculation in bitcoin price right now, still a big part, however, blockchain payment structure will be the standard in three-to-five years from now, according to Stephen Pair, CEO of BitPay.\r\n\r\nIn an interview with CNBC, Stephen Pair, CEO of the global bitcoin payment service company based in Atlanta BitPay commented that speculation is still a big part of bitcoin prices.\r\n\r\n"A very big component of the price is certainly speculation," said Pair. "It is investors that are speculating on the future usage and adoption of this technology. I am sure a small component of that price is the actual utility."\r\n\r\nPair commented that implementation of Blockchain technologies is still on an early stage. However, asked about the usage of blockchain-based currencies in daily transactions, he said everybody would use this technology in the next three to five years.\r\n\r\n"I used to say ten years, but now I think it is more like 3-5 years until you can go into a restaurant, a retail establishment, and just everybody is going to expect that that store will be able to accept a blockchain payment."\r\n\r\nPair also highlighted the possibility to have not only cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Ethereum or other tokens but also Dollars and Euros on blockchain platforms.\r\nBlockchain Developer was the hottest job in 2018 - Linkedin\r\nAre you looking for a job?
