Chamath Palihapitiya, founder and CEO of Social Capital, said will be worth $3 trillion in 10 years and its retail business unit won't be the biggest factor in driving the shares to that value.

The idea from the former senior member of the investment team at Facebook was presented Wednesday at the Sohn Investment Conference in New York.
