“I’m going to be buying the top forever, Bitcoin is the exit strategy," he said last month, adding that the cryptocurrency is stronger than gold. “We believe capital is going to keep flowing from those asset classes into Bitcoin because Bitcoin is technically superior to those asset classes and that being the case, there’s just no reason to sell the winner and to buy the losers.”
