Herjavec is a Canadian investor who founded BRAK Systems and co-host of ABC’s Shark Tank along with billionaire and noted Bitcoin critic – Mark Cuban. Speaking during a segment in Kitco’s news segment, he claimed that he isn’t a big believer in gold being a safe haven asset. Praising Bitcoin, Herjavec said:

I think the price of Bitcoin on a long-term basis will quintuple. 

He also added that a $100,000 and $1 million Bitcoin price “doesn’t sound crazy,” and called Bitcoin “convenient.” He also noted he would buy Bitcoin at these bargain levels, with the price dropping below the $10,000-mark.
