Gold or Bitcoin? Here’s The ‘Real’ Wolf of Wall Street’s Pick
The real ‘Wolf of Wall Street’ Jordan Belfort says he has always been a big believer in gold and would not touch cryptocurrencies. “Everybody and their grandmother is involved in bitcoin, I have friends who lost a lot of money with hackers stealing bitcoins,” he said in an interview outside the New York Stock Exchange. Belfort said he would never buy a bitcoin himself, but doesn’t dismiss the fact that the digital currency has a place in the world. “There is definitely room in the world for cryptocurrencies, but I think central banks will get together and create one as an alternative with some backing and regulation, but I don’t think it is quite there yet.” Belfort was out promoting his latest book, Way of the Wolf. “I want to help entrepreneurs make more money and feel better about doing it – I didn’t really have ethics and integrity,” Belfort said about his latest book. Speaking from Wall Street, Belfort said “there will always be a part of me,” on the street. The author’s life was brought to the big screen in the Oscar-nominated film The Wolf of Wall Street, directed by Martin Scorsese and featuring Leonardo DiCaprio.
