The Barstool Sports founder turned stock trader appears to have been prematurely stung by the highly volatile world of Bitcoin trading. Following our latest bitcoin news, we can see that Dave Portnoy dumped about $25,000 of BTC after he suffered a loss.
The Founder of Barstool Sports the newborn stock trader was hit too early by the highly hazardous Bitcoin trading. Dave Portnoy who not so long ago stated his small knowledge on cryptocurrencies, posted this video on Twitter on August 21, saying that he was ‘getting killed on Bitcoin right now’.
In a tweet which was a follow-up of the one aforementioned said that he lost $25,000 right now and that he needs more time to ‘figure it out’ same as the stock market. Dave Portnoy mentioned Chainlink supporters, that are known as ‘LINK Marines’, saying about them that they are frauds, seemingly because the asset experienced certain correction not long ago after it reached the highest point since its beginning. Demonstrating his ignorance he said in the video:
“I don’t need this, I know how the stock market works. I own the stock market. This Bitcoin — I don’t trust this market at all. I may be out of it by the end of today, and never come back. If Bitcoin people want to keep my money, you better get Bitcoin up today, or else I’m f****** out.”
I currently own zero bitcoins. I will wait and watch. I lost 25k. Just like with the stock market it took my brain time to figure it out. I know this. The Link Marines are weak and the orchid flowers do die in the crypto world. I may or may not be done. #bitcoin

The cryptocurrency community characterized him as a week because he could not tolerate the hazard in Bitcoin trading. The full-time Bitcoin trader that goes by the name ‘Emperor’ added that “this is what happens if you come to our world, trying to act smart.”
The Barstool Sports founder, Dave Portnoy was a host of the Winklevoss twins at his home at the beginning of August in order to get educated in the ways of the cryptocurrencies market, in which duration he made some trades on their Gemini exchange, utilizing the $250,000 which allegedly sent to the exchange before their arrival. On the overly active feed of Dave Portnoy the newest tweet in connection to the cryptocurrency market says:
“I’m out on crypto because coins don’t always go up. Stocks on the other hand continue to always go up.”
Since reaching the reaching of the 2020 top of about $12,400 on August 17, Bitcoin began to fall. It looks like Dave Portnoy made his purchase at the top of this boom and bust cycle and was quite nervous when the bust comes, which is a praxis well known in the previous decade.
