Mike Novogratz and Peter Thiel Like Crypto, and Shrooms….

Listen to our posts

Mike Novogratz and Peter Thiel, two Billionaire investors, are big believers in Bitcoin and Crypto. They also like Shrooms. I learned this a few days ago from a Bloomberg article on alternative investments for wealthy people. (So not all of us.) All I could think about while reading the article was those two taking shrooms and investing in some alt coin. There is a punchline that must be in there somewhere…

Do you take their crypto belief seriously if they also believe in psychedelic investments? Some might think that maybe they will invest in anything speculative, and so they are perhaps less serious about Crypto. Others will read that article and go try to figure out how to invest in Mushrooms along with Bitcoin.

I say good for them, they are risk takers, and have the money to bet. Marijuana is becoming legal everywhere, so perhaps some sort of psychedelic will be next. I don’t know that we need any more drugs out there, since everyone is already on so many legal and non-legal substances. But if it proves to be helpful and not harmful, then maybe there is something to it.

From the Bloomberg article “There’s a renewed wave of research and testing the use of hallucinogenic compounds, primarily psilocybin, the active ingredient in “magic mushrooms,” to alleviate treatment-resistant depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, addiction and other conditions.”

“It just feels like a cultural shift going on,” said billionaire Mike Novogratz, who’s an investor in Compass Pathways. “It’s been around for thousands of years; people kind of know its side effects.”

  • Hi! Do you have any info/opinion on BTCNX – NYDIG Bitcoin Strategy Fund? Thank you!

    • Hi Nancy, I do not have any opinion on the Stone Ridge Trust VI – Nydig Bitcoin Strategy Fund. I read they have over 10k bitcoin, not sure the total number. I would just check the expenses and fees before investing. Also any lockups. Best, Joe
