Former stockbroker believes Ethereum is a scam


There are two types of people in the cryptocurrency market: those who blindly support their trade and those who believe that some tokens are scams, and Max Keizer is in the last group. After going through an online report about finances, the ex-stockbroker has just said that Ethereum is a pyramid cryptocurrency.

But Keizer says that Bitcoin is decentralized, scarce, and with a lot of resistance that could be boosted with crypto mining. The strategist feels that investors have learned of this theft method with alternate tokens, so they have stopped buying them. However, the graphs indicated by CoinMarketCap break Keizer’s claims because each Altcoin has risen its price along with Bitcoin.
