5:20 pm
i will take you to a chart using the trustee bloomberg. you can see we are not at the $4000 mark. we can see it going as high a $6,000. are we in a bubble like what cuban says? >> i think that is a very fair analysis. this?ne: what is sparking what do you think the people you're talking to, some of the f intech companies, why are they feeding this? >> it is important to separate out the bitcoin technology -- the currency from the blood chain technology underlying it. block chain has an enormous underlying potential, and much of the interest is finding the expression in the valuation of bitcoin. we are seeing a galloping ahead

of bitcoin in the technology. caroline: not only the price of bitcoin and ethereum ripple, but it is tempting a lot of to initial coin offerings. you go to the cloud and raise millions. is this something we are seeing techs in europe adopt? >> there are huge sales in ico's. the financial conduct authority in the u.k. is taking a keen interest. they are keen to make sure it encourages innovation while making sure it protects the markets and consumers. is real potential of ico's very exciting, but it comes with health risks. it is an extreme sport. caroline: therefore, do you think we will start to see u.k. regulators come in and say, these are going to be assets

securities that we want to be regulated and registered in the same way vs -- the sec has? >> they have been consulting over the past few months and have not declared a clear position yet, but they are looking at protection of the market and consumer, while encouraging innovation. they are keen to make sure they support innovation and help the maintain a great place to innovate. caroline: you are in the middle of morgan stanley or jp morgan, well.s based in london as how much are you seeing banking sector respond to the rise of block chain technologies and companies born out of it? >> that's a great question. the actual application of these technologies into great financial institutions of the world, it is a long and complex

process. you have to look carefully, listen, and look at people building deep relationships. that is what we support at level39. it is not dramatic. caroline: how can it change the way they operate? >> if you consider at the heart of the distribution of trust across networks, the fundamental peoplermation, many compare this to the early stages of the internet. the comparison is useful. much of the interest in bitcoin and cryptocurrencies look a little bit like the height -- hype that surrounded the internet in the mid to late 1990's. the transformation potential is probably as hard to see in full now as it was in 1995.
5:24 pm
caroline: that's an interesting point mark cuban made. from the ashes of some of these bubbles like bitcoin, you will see the ipos, the digital -- ico's, the digital currencies, come to be the real game changers. where will they be based? san francisco, london? caroline: there is a huge amount of innovation. we can look further as well. if we look at china, russia, japan, great innovation in crypto currency. we should be ready to be unsurprised about where the real progress arrives. of course, it is also important beyond the cryptocurrencies and consider implications of smart contracts. there are exciting developments that also come from the same essential foundation. caroline:caroline: there have been questions as to whether one digital currency will win out over all. do you believe that one will, or can we have many? >> i believe we will probably have many.
5:25 pm
if you look at the government debates and technology debates, particularly of that coin, but i don't think any currency is immune -- governance is a challenge, and scaling is a challenge. it's unlikely one challenger will emerge. to have diversity in almost every other -- in everything. are you discussing with government how they should be adopting and looking at cryptocurrencies? ti,used to work with u.k. getting startups invested. >> the government already does a fantastic job. the regulator does a great job of alan finkel challenges and maintaining protections for markets and consumers, while also being as permissive. it is the envy of regulators around the world.
5:26 pm
as far as the central government is concerned, there's no doubt in any of the minds i have been engaging with that developing the u.k. as a huge advantage of a great place to innovate is at the forefront. caroline: the head of level39. thank you. emily: caroline hyde in london. thank you. coming up, is facebook's copycat strategy paying off? one industry research group cautions that the highly sought after user base could be waning -- aged user base could be waning. this is bloomberg. ♪

of good news snapchat has had in a while. reporter: we saw the stock climbed today after a long, drawnout fall since he ipo. -- the ipo. one of the main reason's snap has fallen is because facebook has been copying its most popular features of the main app and on instagram. this company continues to be very compelling to a lot of young people. that's what the report reminds us. it is still a lot cooler than the big social network is. emily: how much of a concern is this actually for facebook? given that they own instagram, is it still a problem losing teenage users? reporter: when i speak to teenagers who use facebook, and a lot of them do, but they use it for more responsibilities or utilities. they use it to coordinate soccer matches, work on group projects with people from spanish class. it's the kind of thing you have
