Founder and CEO of Digital Currency Group Barry Silbert said on social media Monday that almost all cryptocurrencies are overpriced.
What Happened: Silbert’s comments came in response to a tweet from Bloomberg’s Joe Weisenthal that inquired if cryptocurrencies were overpriced generally or “just a bunch of sh*tcoins that have no business being where they are?”
Silbert said, “99% are overpriced.”
Why It Matters: Silbert’s Digital Currency Group subsidiary Grayscale Investments is in the cryptocurrency asset management business.
Bitcoin (BTC), the apex cryptocurrency, has surged over 23% in a seven-day trailing period as of press time. BTC traded 4.26% higher at $40,484.98.
