Billionaire Carl Icahn says he may drop up to $1.5B into crypto

Former crypto skeptic Carl Icahn, the founding father of Icahn Enterprises, advised Bloomberg he’s set to enter the crypto market in a “big way” — teasing an funding of round $1.5 billion.

Icahn is an investor and former advisor to the Trump administration who has a internet value of $15.6 billion in accordance to Forbes. In 2018 Icahn advised CNBC that crypto is “ridiculous” and added “maybe I’m too old for them, but I wouldn’t touch that stuff.”
