Famous investors like to talk about how they made their millions. Investors like George Soros and Warren Buffett are always being interviewed. Small investors want to be just like the big dog investors when it comes to building wealth and prestige. Other big money investors don’t like to be in the limelight for a number of reasons, but it seems Shervin Pishevar, one of the early investors in Uber, and the founder of Sherpa Capital is not one of those wealthy capitalists.
Mr. Pishevar sort of disappeared after announcing he was walking away from his main company during a mid-December interview. But the people who know Shervin Pishevar know he doesn’t like to be silent for very long. Pishevar is the investor who convinced Menlo Ventures to take a chance on Uber. And he’s the investor Elon Musk is working with to get Hyperloop One off the ground. He is the executive chairman of Hyperloop One, and he has a stake in other companies like the Dollar Shave Club, Warby Parker, Didi, and Slack.

So when Shervin Pishevar went on a tweeting rage recently, investors got a taste of how talkative he can be when he wants to be. Shervin’s tweetstorm was an eye-opener for many people who follow what he says and does. When he tweeted that Bitcoin’s value will drop to the $2,000 to $5,000 range that message sent a chill through the minds of Bitcoin investors. And that was just one of the 50 tweets Shervin Pishevar sent during his 21-hour rant on Trump’s favorite way to get his frustrations out.
But Pishevar wasn’t tweeting to relieve frustration or to throw anyone under the bus like the commander-in-tweet likes to do. Shervin’s tweets were predictions, not insults. Pishevar sees a financial crisis brewing, and the stock market will drop by 6,000 points during that crisis. Silicon Valley’s potential demise was in another tweet, and the bond market is not going to be as solid for investors as it has in the past. And another tweet claims the U.S. is falling behind China in terms of infrastructure modernization and economic growth. And Pishevar didn’t stop there. But Shervin Pishevar did get a lot of things off his chest. Maybe more Pishevar tweets are coming now that he has everyone’s attention.
