The CNBC host publicly thanks Anthony Pompliano after he made serious returns on a $500,000 BTC investment.
CNBC host Jim Cramer has revealed he made "a ton of money" on Bitcoin (BTC) but gold "let him down."
In an episode of the Pomp Podcast released March 22, Cramer thanked host Anthony Pompliano for inspiring him to invest $500,000 in BTC.
Cramer after Bitcoin buy: "Thank you"
"Here's what's going on: you made me a ton of money," he began.
Cramer is well known as a mainstream media finance pundit, and is also familiar to Bitcoiners after a previous Pomp Podcast appearance in September 2020. His latest outing, however, puts him in pole position among CNBC presenters when it comes to being bullish on Bitcoin.
Continuing, he said that unlike with his experience with buying gold and stocks, Bitcoin actually delivered.
"It happened just as you said," he told Pompliano.
"It also happened much faster than you said, but I'm very grateful — and you know who else is grateful? My kids."
Turning to gold, Cramer updated advice that he claimed to have espoused for almost 30 years.
