As Bitcoin Touches $5k, Ex-Goldman Sachs Partner Sees 10k In Less Than A Year

in bitcoin •  last year

It was with joy and exhilaration that I saw Bitcoin going relaxed over the $5k threshold today:

And since no good news come alone, I also saw an apparently bland news standing out from my news feed. Michael Novogratz, of which I never heard before, I confess in all honesty, but who appears to be a billionaire and an ex-Goldman Sachs partners, came of his retirement and started a $500 millions fund dedicated to cryptocurrencies.

"I never thought I'd come out of retirement but the space is so exciting right now I decided to build a business, hire a whole bunch of smart guys, and we're gonna to raise a fund ... and hopefully take advantage of what I see as a revolution, actually. A decentralised revolution."

In the process, he also slipped his opinion about Bitcoin price, telling that we'll see BTC at $10k in the next ten months.

Now, if BTC is $5k now, and if in 10 months it will double in value, AND if the value of Novogratz's fund is 500 millions, then I can clearly understand that he just wants another billion.

Simple as that.

So, I'm curious if GS will screw the clients who now buy per their rec? Will GS take the other side? The bastards!

I got up this morning and as pumped at the strength with witch it cleared $5000. I even wrote a post about where I think it will settle down at if you want to check it out.

I can't wait till someone comes up with an "index fund" for crypto.

$500 fund

I think you left off a million after that $500. Assuming that because down here you said

Novogratz's fund is 500 millions


Not an index fund, but

Bitcoin Investment Trust (GBTC)
USD$680.00 up almost 9% right now.
