Last Year, Macro Guru Raoul Pal Shared A Tip With Bitcoin Investors — Here's What He Said

Former Goldman Sachs GS executive Raoul Pal shared a tip with Bitcoin BTC/USD investors last year to maximize their gains. Pal advised them to never use leverage on Bitcoin as it amplified their potential investment losses. 

What Happened: In November 2022, Pal tweeted that owning Bitcoin, by all means, was a good idea. “It will probably work very well over 5 years+.”

However, he then went on to ask investors to never “use leverage” to own Bitcoin.

Pal was responding to a Twitter thread by an anonymous user on how MicroStrategy MSTR CEO Michael Saylor had started plowing the company’s cash into Bitcoin.

“The strategy of buying Bitcoin as a replacement of dollars for the company’s treasury is already questionable,” the user tweeted.

The user pointed out that MicroStrategy took $2.2 billion in debt to buy more Bitcoin, which means “leverage of 14 times. It is reckless.”

When asked by another Twitter user “whether this time is as bad as times past"? Pal responded by saying, “No.”

MicroStrategy currently holds 140,000 Bitcoins.

Price Action: At the time of writing, BTC was trading at $30,011, up 5.99% in the last 24 hours, according to Benzinga Pro data.
