Shervin Pishevar is an Iranian immigrant who came to the United States some 30 years ago. After the country’s former president Ayatollah Khomeini placed a warrant out for the arrest of Pishevar for providing Iranian residents without formal citizenship status instructions for leaving the war-torn dictatorship. Shervin Pishevar knew he had to flee his homeland of Iran – he was born in the Middle-Eastern country and spent the entirety of his childhood there, but he knew he couldn’t risk being executed by the former dictator of Iran because he wouldn’t face punishment for doing something positive for society – which he went through with in the early 1990s.
After Shervin Pishevar safely landed in the United States – the land of opportunity people recognized as such regardless of their nationality – he found a job as a cab driver. His family safely traveled to the land of opportunity to shortly thereafter see Shervin enroll in one of the nation’s – not just the nation’s, but the entire world’s – finest four-year colleges’ molecular biology programs.
That school was none other than the University of California, Berkeley. Although he originally wanted to become a physician, Shervin Pishevar quickly changed his mindset and founded WebOS, a tech company, in 1997. Since then, Pishevar – once named “Bill Gates’ worst nightmare” – has founded a handful of companies on his own, co-founded a couple of other businesses, served on the board of directors at several civic-minded organizations found across the globe, and even reeled in two prestigious awards recognized around planet Earth – the Outstanding American by Choice award in 2012 to which he was elected to receive by the United States federal government, as well as 2016’s Ellis Island Medal of Honor.
Shervin Pishevar said Bitcoin would drop in price just to rebound – it happened. He also claimed that the NYSE would drop in value by thousands of points, which – again – did happen.
In the February tweet storm where he made the aforementioned guesses, he also included that the bond market would soon collapse, which started to happen just a few months ago.
