Shervin Pishevar: Cryptocurrencies in 2018

Shervin Pishevar predicted initial troubles and then continued growth of the Bitcoin blockchain. Cryptocurrencies have relied upon Bitcoin to carry the market into respectability. Many of the reasons for past success are owed to key innovations. However, the future of cryptocurrencies will progress differently. They will need to be more substantial and the crypto market more mature. This is what Shervin Pishevar saw developing.

What Bitcoin means to cryptocurrencies is harder to ascertain today than before the rally at the end of 2017. Several months ago, most of the public had only heard of Bitcoin. Cryptocurrencies, if someone had even heard that word, were a passing fancy. Maybe seen as a hobby or obscure technology that might have valuable applications, but not something that would permeate life. In 2017 Bitcoin was the cryptocurrency market. By 2018, people began looking for the next Bitcoin in a growing pool of new ICOs.

There are many reasons for the past success of cryptocurrencies. However, the market capitalization was highly influenced by new innovations. It happened a few years ago with the introduction of Ethereum and again at the end of 2017. The more recent coinciding with a major fork in the Bitcoin (original) blockchain.

A lot of innovations are being planned by new cryptocurrencies for the end of the second quarter of 2018. EOS might be the most notable but is certainly not the only one. A lot of reputable projects center around the EOS platform. The developers have proven themselves by building one of the most success blockchains today.

The future success of cryptocurrencies will occur in a more mature market. This maturity is part of the reason why Shervin Pishevar mentioned a slow recovery of the Bitcoin price. Success in this type of market will unlikely be because of some high profile cryptocurrency being launched that same month. EOS might be the last of the blockchains to bring overwhelming capital to the cryptocurrency market. The maturity of cryptocurrencies appears to coincide with widespread innovation of digital transactions. This makes Shervin Pishevar’s statements about the economy both on target and early.

The career path of Dr. Mark McKenna that has led to him opening OVME

While completing his medical degree at Tulane Medical School, Dr. Mark McKenna realized that it would be difficult to make a sufficient income as a physician. As a result, he looked to go on to another field shortly after completing medical school. In 1999, Dr. Mark McKenna looked to build a real estate business so that he can establish long term wealth. Due to Hurricane Katrina, his business lost millions of dollars and he therefore had to rebuild his fortune. He would achieve this by investing in low priced homes and renting them out. Mark then moved to Atlanta, Georgia and opened up a business called ShapeMed which offered a number of cosmetic treatments such as Botox injections, laser hair removal and nutrition counseling. In 2015, Mark sold off the business and eventually started up a new venture known as OVME. This is an application that allows individuals to contact freelance Botox practitioners to provide injections on demand. It is known as the Uber of Botox treatment.

Dr. Mark McKenna decided to go on to business after medical school because he saw how his father was dealing with medical billing and reimbursement. Mark realized that his father was having difficulty collecting income in a timely manner and his practice was being negatively affected as a result. Due to this factor, Mark decided to invest in real estate during medical school.

In order to afford to invest in real estate as a student, Dr. Mark McKenna would work at prisons conducting physicals for a wage of $50 per hour. With the income he made at this, he would then use all of his income to acquire properties and take in the profits.

After completing medical school, Dr. Mark McKenna would work at his father’s general practice for five years. During this time, he would invest in more real estate and build a fortune. Real estate gave Mark a more fulfilling career because it allowed him to engage other parts of his brain and thinking.

Dr, McKenna would eventually start up OVME which would allow Botox patients a more convenient way of getting injections. The OVME venture would allow patients to contact OVME providers and then get their needed injections. This business venture has so far been a huge success for Mark.
