Dave Portnoy, the founder of Barstool Sports, has said that he still sees Bitcoin the same as he did in 2017, where he recently re-tweeted his 2017 video on Bitcoin by saying his view on the asset.
Portnoy said in a June 19 tweet:
“For everybody trying to get me in the Bitcoin game, I made this video in 2017. I still feel this way.”
However, active on social media, Portnoy has made noise since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic for his comedic stock day trading videos, in which he alludes to his lack of market prowess.
In his 2017 video, Portnoy said that he was a “Bitcoin investor” that year, due to the hype around the asset at the time. Most of the video includes Portnoy explaining his confusion on the asset, its ecosystem, and its underlying technology.
“I don’t know how to spend em. I don’t know how to get em. You gotta go to this think called Coinbase, which is how ya buy em and they keep shuttin down because too many people are trying to buy Bitcoin. The whole thing is run by the Winklevoss twins.”
Portnoy proceeded to call Bitcoin a scam, though he said that he wanted involvement so as not to miss out on all the gains boasted by those around him.
Likewise, Portnoy said in a June 20 tweet referring to Tyler Winklevoss:
“Ok I’ve decided I like you even though I think you and your brother are robots.”
Thus, Bitcoin has garnered multiple other comments this year.
