Scaramucci Is Long On Crypto
The Skybridge CEO said Bitcoin could potentially become a $300,000 asset in the space of six years. Speaking to CNBC, he said cryptocurrencies could prove to be great long term investments. Bitcoin and Ethereum are two of Skybridge’s largest positions, he explained, adding that they also have a large position in Algorand. He said his company is also interested in Solana.
“In the next six years, if BTC goes to $300K a coin, it will not matter whether you bought it at $20K or $60K. And I am just cautioning people that the future is upon us. It’s happening sooner than I thought.”
Describing Algorand as having an award winning technology, Scaramucci said, “We have a very large position in a smaller coin called Algorand.” He added that Bitcoin could witness huge commercial activity with improvement of the lightning network. An increase in applications and ease of transactions on the network could also result in positive momentum for Bitcoin, he explained.

Anthony Scaramucci Ethereum prediction is an encouraging sign to the community. “The Merge is coming with Ethereum and it is going to lower the transaction fees on that network. A lot of users are buying that rumor.”
He said people will probably sell on the news of The Merge which is scheduled for mid-September. “I would caution people against doing that. These are great long term investments.”
