He tweeted, "Bottom is in." He also tweeted, saying, "If you're scared to buy now, that's the moment to buy. The market just made a correction of 38% on Bitcoin. Historically, one of the best moments to say; Hey, get me some of that. Don't listen to your emotions. Don't sell. Be contrarian."

Last month, he mentioned that he is expecting a "bull cycle" for Bitcoin to continue until April or May of 2022. He said that Bitcoin would continue towards the all-time high region if it breaks above the $64,000 range.
