Anthony Scaramucci, who served in the White House for 10 days before being fired, has previously expressed interest in cryptocurrencies, most notably Bitcoin. However, his firm, SkyBridge Capital said it “can seek exposure to digital assets.”
Scaramucci, also known as “The Mooch”, expressed in a past interview that he believes that “digital assets have a future and obviously that blockchain has a future.” In that regard, it’s no wonder SkyBridge Capital said last week in a press release that you can invest in digital assets.
What exactly did SkyBridge Capital say?
In a press release published last week, SkyBridge Capital reported that it “may seek exposure to digital assets.” He noted that by “digital assets,” the company was referring to Bitcoin, but was not limited to only this cryptocurrency.
“The investments of the Company and / or the Investment Funds may also be made in companies that provide technologies related to digital assets or other emerging technologies.” “The company can invest in mutual funds that provide access to a particular digital asset or assets without a discretionary investment strategy,” the company added.
According to Reuters, the company founded by Scaramucci manages assets worth $ 7.7 billion. On one occasion, Scaramucci added that millennials are the current driving force in the adoption of cryptocurrency.
BTC status right now
For now, market analysts consider that part of the reason Bitcoin’s price has skyrocketed lately is due to high-profile numbers and companies expressing support for the asset and other digital currencies. One of these would be SkyBridge Capital.
As of this writing, Bitcoin is worth $ 17,657 according to our Crypto Online tool. This represents an increase of 5.15% in the last 24 hours.
Therefore, it is understandable that companies begin to test in one way or another the benefits offered by the world of cryptocurrencies and blockchain in general. However, you are not always willing to expose yourself to the volatility that Bitcoin has. That is why every ad like the one made by Scaramucci’s company generates such a stir.
