He cited the vast amount of money printing taking place and how this narrative is increasing interest in gold and Bitcoin:

“Bitcoin still has a lot of retail interest in it. A lot of that retail interest shifted to the story stocks, to the tech stocks, because they were just more fun … Yesterday you saw a lot of money shift back over to gold and…
