A well-known financial consultant admitted that he was wrong with his bitcoin strategy
Stock market star Dave Portnoy wrote on his Twitter page that he made the mistake of selling his BTC too early. In his words, the investor did not understand the dynamics of the growth and fall of the most popular crypto coin. Earlier, the founder of Barstool Sports acquired BTC for $1 million. However, he quickly became disillusioned with this asset and sold bitcoins at a price below $12,000. “I want to congratulate all my bitcoin people out there. When you're wrong, you're wrong. I fucking paper-handed, sold it. I fucking can't take bitcoin, the ups and downs. I wish I had it. I took all my money and I put it in what I think I know, and what I can control. I don't know bitcoin. I fucked up, ”Portnoy said in his video message to crypto enthusiasts. JPMorgan: retail investors are more interested in bitcoin than institutional ones
Analysts at JPMorgan concluded that in the first three months of 2021, retail investment in BTC exceeded that of institutional investors. The latter began to buy less cryptocurrency. Analysts do not exclude that a decrease in the volume of investments from institutions may be one of the reasons that bitcoin could not stay above the $60,000 mark. According to JPMorgan, retail investors bought over 187,000 BTC, while institutional investors bought about 172,684 BTC. According to the Japanese investment company Mizuho Securities, about $40 billion of the $380 billion that American citizens will receive in the form of incentive payments can be invested in bitcoins and stocks.
