This tweet is a bit of complicated since Novogratz has been saying for fairly some time now that Bitcoin goes to turn into “digital gold.”
For instance, that is what he mentioned about Bitcoin again in February 2019 in an interview with Bloomberg Tv:
“We’re not gonna bubble again up… We’re going to grind again up…
“Within the subsequent run-up, you are actually going to separate Bitcoin from plenty of the opposite cryptocurrencies… I feel if there may be 118 parts on the periodic desk, solely, gold, is efficacious simply because it is a retailer of worth… Bitcoin goes to be digital gold.
“There’s going to be a spot the place you could have soveriegn cash. It isn’t U.S. cash. It isn’t Chinese language cash. It is sovereign. And so, sovereignty prices loads. It ought to value loads.”
This tweet virtually makes it seem like he has misplaced all of his confidence in Bitcoin, however if so, how may this have occurred so shortly to such an skilled dealer since at first of this month he was explaining to individuals on Twitter clarify why Bitcoin has been buying and selling not too long ago like a danger asset:
How did $btc go from being a hedge in opposition to dangerous stuff to getting washed out and buying and selling like a danger asset? When issues go from dangerous, to very very dangerous like they did final week, buyers take leverage down as quick as they will. They e book earnings to make up for different losses. Ouch.
