Billionaire Carl Icahn Eyes Potential $1.5B Crypto Investment
Carl Icahn evaluated GameStop events and developments in the cryptocurrency market in an interview with Bloomberg. Icahn, who was skeptical of cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin in the past, took a different stance this time.
The billionaire emphasized that he did not pronounce the name of Bitcoin or a different cryptocurrency regarding the investment he was considering, and that he reviewed the whole of the crypto money market.
Saying that cryptocurrencies will now be in our lives in one way or another, Carl Icahn explained that he is examining how they can be included in the market under the name of Icahn Enterprises.
In his statements in 2017, Icahn likened Bitcoin to the Mississippi bubble in the 18th century, saying that he did not understand it and stayed away from what he did not understand.
Saying that if they enter the market, they will enter with a substantial amount of money, he does not give an exact number, but he stated that They mean numbers like billions, one and a half billion dollars by substantial amounts of money and they invest sometimes larger amounts than that, sometimes much smaller amounts. That’s why; he claimed that he won’t give an exact number at the moment.
