SWIFT is a legacy system that is very slow, very costly, and inefficient,” he added. He also used the following words for Ripple:
Ripple has the work to enable the banking system to process in seconds. So why not? Bitcoin was never meant for banks anyway. Let Ripple grow in this space. I don’t see conflict, so I’m bullish on XRP, among other things. I think XRPL is a very underrated tool.
Gokhshtein: The Terra community is crazy

This community is incredible. They are crazy. Lunatics have always been insane. I love them. All I want is to benefit. I want to see benefits, and I really want to see projects built on Terra come back and use Terra Classic. When they do, I’ll go into supreme ascension and go get as many Terra Classics as possible.
About SHIB and chest coins
Apart from that, Gokhshtein answered a question about other chest coins, especially Shiba Inu (SHIB). He said he wasn’t interested in SHIB when it first came out, mainly because it’s Dogecoin. He subsequently stated that people had told him to “look at SHIB”. He even said they recommended putting $500 on SHIB. He explained that if he had invested $500, he could have made millions of dollars, but not at the time. He says SHIB isn’t just about money right now. Gokhshtein uses the following words:
I think the Shiba development group did an impeccable job. And I think, next time around, everything they’ve built during this bearish market will be seen by everyone in the field. I am very optimistic about SHIB. I’m holding SHIB in this middle, but I’m very, very optimistic about this. I love the community. A tough, strong bunch of people. Surely they entered to make money, but they stayed because they fell in love with the ecosystem.
