The CEO of Galaxy Digital who was recently at the Bitcoin 2022 conference held in Miami once again spoke in favor of the cryptocurrency, highlighting the future potential of the digital asset. Novogratz made his predictions while speaking at the conference, but this isn’t the first time a billionaire has made such a prediction.
