Pouliot’s Post Gets Deserved Attention
Frances Pouliot is one of those contributing positively to see bitcoin gaining its most desired adoption. Pouliot is the CEO and co-founder of Bull Bitcoin, a Canadian-based firm. The firm claims to be Canadian’s alternative to Coinbase and Bitpay.
A lot of his followers seem to agree with him as positive responses trailed his opinion on the social media platform. Among those who commented is Adam Back, Blockstream.com’s CEO.
From Back’s comment, it’s certain he believes bitcoin is worth a fortune, however, Back thinks equating bitcoin to 700 acres of land is simply an understatement.
In his responds, Back says; “I make it 6,000 acres/bitcoin.”
that sounds low, that’s less 5 quarter sections (160 acre quarters of a square mile), which in Canada is not that expensive in (like $100k-$200/quarter section eg $500k-$1mil CAD of land). I make it 6000 acres/bitcoin. land surface is 196912100 sq miles (640 acres per sq mile).— Adam Back (@adam3us) 2 June 2019
