CNBC’s Mad Money Host, Jim Cramer, Says ‘Not Too Late for Bitcoin’ Even at $19,000


Jim Cramer, the founder of The Street, took to Twitter to share with its 1.4 million followers that it is a good time to jump into Bitcoin. Cramer said,

“It is not too late for Bitcoin.. great alternative to gold… which I have always believed in.”

The host of CNBC’s Mad Money comments came when the largest digital asset is trading above $19,000, a level last seen during the peak of the December bull run. BTC is just inches, not even 5% away from its all-time high of $20,000.

While millennials are already into cryptocurrencies big time, boomers may make an entry into the market too.

Bitcoin is up 168% YDT, with the majority of these gains, nearly 80%, coming in these last two months.

Unlike BTC, which is strengthening its digital gold narrative, the precious metal itself is having a rough past few months. Ever since hitting a new high above $2,000 in August, the gold price has been on a decline. Up only 18.7% year-to-date, the bullion is down -3.74% this month, dropping to the $1,800 level today.

While gold is getting sold off, BTC continues to climb up, inching that much closer to its new ATH. As we reported recently, analysts at Deutsche Bank said that Bitcoin is seeing increasing demand to be used to hedge dollar risk, inflation, and other things for which previously gold has been used.

Bitcoin whales are the one that is busy accumulating bitcoin currently. In the short-term, a much-anticipated pullback could make an entrance, with the number of accumulation addresses falling.

However, going by the narrative that the rally is largely driven by professional asset managers, “this means that Bitcoin will play a more active part in portfolio construction, going forward,” said Denis Vinokourov of Bequant.

Talking about its implications for Bitcoin, he said it would make “its once cherished non-correlated asset appeal (…) unclear, but it makes sense that if more institutions hold it, the more likely it will become correlated to traditional assets.”
