Macro investor Paul Tudor Jones said that he has “a little over 1%” of his assets in bitcoin during a Monday morning appearance on CNBC.…
Speaking to CNBC’s Fast Money, Bogart, who is regular commentator on the network and on cryptocurrency social media, adopted a notably bullish tone compared to just weeks ago when Bitcoin was trading around $6,000.
“Any number of catalysts could send bitcoin exploding higher,” he forecast, adding:
“Bitcoin is kind of a tinderbox right now, waiting for reasons to go higher.”
Bogart’s increasing optimism adds to a popular narrative in the cryptocurrency industry that has grown out of Bitcoin’s sudden price increase of over 33 percent this month, the majority of which occurred over the past ten days.
At press time Thursday, BTC/USD traded around $8,233 according to Cointelegraph’s price index.
Like many commentators, Bogart highlighted potential regulatory approval of a Bitcoin exchange-traded fund (ETF), geopolitical and macroeconomic “tensions” and continued interest in blockchain integration for payments from big business such as MasterCard in July.
“The cat’s out of the bag,” he continued to CNBC reporters, “[i]nnovation is going elsewhere if the SEC [U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission] doesn’t get on board soon.”
