Bitcoin climbed up 6%, to $34,000 early Monday. Although it’s still far from its peak value of $63,381 in mid-April, it sure is way better than the $28,000 dip we saw last week. Mexican banker/billionaire Ricardo Salinas Pliego tweeted over the weekend, recommending the use of Bitcoin to average investors. “Me and my bank are working to be the first bank in Mexico to accept #Bitcoin,” he said in his tweet.
Following his statement of getting his bank to accept Bitcoin, he also tweeted in Spanish to encourage people to invest in Bitcoin as a way to diversify their portfolios. “I think that any investor should start learning about cryptocurrencies and their future. At @BancoAzteca we are working to bring them to our clients,” the post said. As the chairman of Banco Azteca’s parent company, Salinas Pliego, with a net worth of $15.8 billion, his words carry a lot of weight.
