After Predicting An October Crash, 'Rich Dad Poor Dad' Author Robert Kiyosaki Declares His 'Love' For Bitcoin

After predicting a “giant stock market crash” in October, Robert Kiyosaki is now saying he “loves” Bitcoin (CRYPTO: BTC) although he doesn’t trust federal officials.

What Happened: The "Rich Dad Poor Dad" author on Friday tweeted his support for the apex cryptocurrency, but said he distrusts the Federal Reserve, Treasury Department and Wall Street.

Kiyosaki also told his 1.7 million Twitter followers that he's optimistic about Bitcoin as the price rises above the $60,000 mark. “Future very bright. Celebrate yet be cautious,” he tweeted. Kiyosaki added that he’s waiting for a pullback before he invests more in the cryptocurrency.

At the end of September, Kiyosaki tweeted that “Giant stock market crash coming October. Why? Treasury and Fed short of T-bills.” Although critics pointed out that he's made claims of an imminent market crash many times over the years, spanning back to 2011.

Over the past decade he has repeatedly tweeted about the Treasury and Fed, and warned about the dangers of the U.S. continually printing money.

What’s Next: Several of Kiyosaki’s followers questioned his prediction of a crash in October, some indicating that they will make additional investments when he predicts future corrections, saying the market behavior is typically opposite to his prognostications.

The author of the best-selling book “Rich Dad Poor Dad” indicated last month that he’s added Ethereum (CRYPTO: ETH) to his most-preferred investment instruments, which include Bitcoin, gold and silver.
