Bridgewater Associates founder Ray Dalio asked for and received a heaping dose of the “radical candor” he is well known for when he said he’d “love to be corrected” on the negative views about bitcoin he expressed last week.
From arguments of privacy to bitcoin’s use as a hedge against inflation, Dalio’s invitation brought out bitcoin bulls in droves along with a smattering of naysayers. Unusual for Crypto Twitter, the responses were largely respectful, informative and, in many cases, amusing and worth your time.
“I today can’t take my bitcoin and buy things easily with it,” he said at the time.
As of press time, bitcoin’s price was $17,587, up from $15,752 at the time of his Nov. 11 pronouncement.
