In December, Cramer said he cashed out his crypto investments last year and bought a farm with the earnings. Now he's wondering if the entire space is just one big con.

Cramer sold all of his Bitcoin BTC/USD  last year and bought Ethereum ETH/USD  instead, noting that people actually use the latter to transact. However, he sold his Ethereum position after he found out his bank was unwilling to accept it. 

Price Action: At the time of writing, BTC was trading at $20,777, down 2.48% in the last 24 hours,  according to Benzinga Pro.
