"Put a little money in Bitcoin...Come back in a few years and it's going to be worth a lot."
He was of course correct, Bitcoin was trading around $200 at the time and as recently as three weeks ago was worth $5000...
The last time we heard from Novogratz was in June 2017, at the CB Insights Future of Fintech conference in New York, where he told attendees that he has cut holdings (in Bitcoin and Ethereum) after the cryptocurrencies' latest "spectacular run," warning that "Euthereum had likely hit its highs for the year," and "cryptocurrencies were likely the biggest bubble of his lifetime."
However, while this all sounded desperately downbeat, Novogratz was still very "positively constructive" on the space overall. He should be - he has 20% of his net worth invested in the sector... and now, as Bloomberg reports, Mike Novogratz is reinventing himself as the king of bitcoin.
