Bitcoin Exchange Guide

U.S. Treasury Secretary Mnuchin has taken his anti-crypto advocacy to a new level by saying he won’t be loading up on Bitcoin for the next 10 years. In an interview with CNBC’s Squawk Box on Wednesday, Secretary Mnuchin waved off suggestions that he would be a bitcoin billionaire in the next few years. The U.S. Treasury Secretary retorted: “I won’t be talking about bitcoin in 10 years, I can assure you that. I would bet even in five or six years [that] I won’t be talking about bitcoin as Treasury Secretary, I’ll have other priorities. I can assure you I’ll personally not be loaded up on bitcoin.”
