Day Trader Dave Portnoy bought 29 Bitcoins on the fly after his ups and downs with the crypto leader
In August 2020, stock trader and Barstool Sports blog founder Dave Portnoy told his Twitter followers that he currently had “zero bitcoin”. “I’ll wait and watch”, the day trader wrote at the time. “I lost 25K. Just like with the stock market, it took my brain a while to figure it out. I know that. Link Marines are weak and orchid flowers are dying in the crypto world. I may or may not be done,” Portnoy added. Earlier today, Portnoy seemed very irritated with the cryptocurrency markets and stressed in a video:
This Bitcoin – I don’t trust this market at all. I could be out of it by the end of today and never come back.
The founder of the Barstool Sports blog had recently entered a BTC position when he sold his dogecoin stash (DOGE), after hearing that Tesla had sold bitcoin in April 2021. “I’m the proud owner of 1 bitcoin” , Portnoy said at the time. . Now, it looks like after bitcoin (BTC) fell more than 40% from its all-time high on November 10, 2021, BTC is priced right for Portnoy’s liking. The founder of the Barstool Sports blog tweeted:
I fucked and bought 29 bitcoins today.
