“I encourage my cryptocurrency friends to participate in the stock exchange,” Portnoy, also known as Davey Day Trader, said in a September 2 tweet. “Bitcoin is stuck in the mud,” he explained, adding:
“Let me guide you. We will come back to cryptocurrency later. Time to strike! No time for weak hands! Take a step! ”
On Twitter, Portnoy tweeted a scene from Captain America: The First Avenger, a scene where protagonist Steve Rogers catches up with his military team and pulls a stick on the flagpole to get to the flag instead of climbing up. big pole.
In true Portnoy comic style, the Sports Media founder edited the protagonist’s smiling face off the stage, and also named his failed comrades Link Marines, a group known for their hype around Chenlink’s famous lineage.
Portnoy’s attitude towards cryptocurrencies has been very grim in recent weeks. First, he said he knew little about Bitcoin and its associated asset class. This was followed by an educational meeting with the founders of the cryptocurrency exchange Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss, as a result of which Portnoy allocated hundreds of thousands of dollars for cryptocurrency trading. He then left the industry, losing a small portion of his money.
