Shark Tank Star Kevin O’Leary Says Most Crypto Tokens Are Worthless — ‘They’ll Eventually Just Go to Zero’ – Markets and Prices Bitcoin News

Shark Tank star Kevin O’Leary, aka Mr. Wonderful, says that most crypto tokens are worthless and they will eventually drop to zero in value. He added that he now owns seven cryptocurrencies and he is getting the same volatility he did when he owned 32 crypto tokens prior to the collapse of crypto exchange FTX.

O’Leary: Most Crypto Tokens Are Worthless

Kevin O’Leary shared his view on cryptocurrency investing in an interview with Scott Melker on the Wolf of All Streets podcast, published Tuesday. He said:

10,000 tokens, most of them worthless. They’ll eventually just go to zero because of lack of volatility and lack of volume. They are irrelevant.

According to some data providers, there are currently about 10,000 cryptocurrencies. Coinmarketcap, however, shows a total of 22,476 crypto tokens.

The chairman of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Gary Gensler, also said on several occasions that most crypto tokens will fail. He recently urged investors not to get caught up in the fear of missing out (FOMO).

Portfolio Diversification

O’Leary added that he marked all his crypto investments down to zero when FTX filed for bankruptcy in November last year. The Shark Tank star solely used FTX because he was a spokesperson for the exchange. FTX paid him $15 million to be its spokesperson.

While the FTX bankruptcy case is still going on, Mr. Wonderful said: “In the interim, to bring back our allocation, we simply went into the market and bought new positions in bitcoin, polygon, ethereum, HBAR, just a few — seven positions.”

He explained: “We went back to look at the volatility of our portfolio pre-FTX and now post-FTX. We had 32 positions on pre-FTX collapse, we now have seven and we are getting the exact same volatility with a fraction of the actual number of tickers.” The Shark Tank star continued, “So you don’t need to own everything to be exposed to crypto volatility,” elaborating:

You don’t need any more than seven, you are getting the same volatility.

Following the meltdown of FTX, O’Leary was heavily criticized for his continued support of the disgraced founder Sam Bankman-Fried (SBF). He said he would back SBF again if he had another venture, insisting that the former FTX CEO was a brilliant crypto trader.
