Scaramucci and Harrison are looking forward to Work Together
Scaramucci indicated in a tweet response to Harrison’s extensive thread about Sam Bankman-Fried and his employment at FTX US on January 14 that he was “pleased” to be an investor in Harrison’s new company.
However, Scaramucci’s investment and involvement in the company were not disclosed. Harrison hinted at his new crypto endeavor when he announced his retirement as president of FTX US on September 27.
He announced his resignation as president but said he would continue advising the exchange for the next few months. Meanwhile, Scaramucci remains bullish about the crypto industry’s rebirth, naming 2023 as a “recovery year” in the market forecast.
In an interview with CNBC on January 15, the crypto investor predicted that Bitcoin (BTC) would recover to $50,000-100,000 during the next two to three years.
Scaramucci sees #bitcoin at $50,000 to $100,000 in 2-3 years.
Is he going to be right?
