Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies are here to stay despite the current bear market, says Jeff Sprecher, chairman of the New York Stock Exchange and CEO of its parent company, Intercontinental Exchange (ICE). When asked about the plunging crypto market values, Sprecher said as an exchange operator, it’s not his place to opine about prices. However, he’s confident about the bright future of digital assets. “The unequivocal answer is yes [crypto will survive],” Sprecher said at the Consensus: Invest conference in New York this week.
