Coming as GameStop shares have again surged by 100%, closing at $91.71 in the final hours of trading on Wednesday, Cramer tweeted: “GME-issue one billion dollars in stock, Buy one billion in bitcoin and watch your stock go to $430…” Firms such as MicroStrategy, Square, and Tesla have recently been purchasing bitcoin as a hedge against inflation and a devaluing dollar. Cramer has previously endorsed MicroStrategy’s bitcoin treasury reserve and called its CEO, Michael Saylor, a “gunner” he wouldn’t bet against.

As a result, some short sellers lost billions of dollars. On Tuesday, it emerged that GameStop CFO Jim Bell – referenced in Cramer’s tweet – had resigned for reasons not disclosed. In another tweet over the latest GME price rise, Cramer added, “This is so wild west.. The SEC must be having a fit!!!” Bitcoin is the best thing to buy.
