The millionaire “Twitter Philanthropist” Bill Pulte, dubbed “Bitcoin Bill” after his foray into the BTC market back in December 2019, has taken to social media, live-streaming to his followers to share claims that “30 billionaires” have bitcoin holdings they are not telling the public about.
“I was on the phone to a billionaire the other day and he said to me, ‘Bill, do you understand that there are literally 30 other billionaires who are in bitcoin who have not publically come out and publically said ‘I’m in bitcoin?’”
Pulte then claimed that the person he had spoken to had also revealed the identity of a high-profile billionaire who was rumored to have “the biggest position” in bitcoin.
Pulte refused to name names, but added that “everybody would know” the person in question. He also said that he was telling his followers about this “rumor” and was “just letting” followers “know what I know.”
The video sent an r/Bitcoin Reddit thread into a flurry of speculation as to the identity of the mystery BTC whale, with some guessing that the mystery BTC investor was Elon Musk – with Amazon chief Jeff Bezos and crypto-skeptic Warren Buffett also mentioned.
As for Pulte, the PulteGroup heir appears to have grown increasingly bullish about bitcoin in recent months – and recently took to Twitter to retweet one of his own predictions about BTC prices following the latest crypto price rises.
He also wrote that he was “thinking if giving away bitcoin today” on November 17 and then claimed to be having trouble sending BTC to someone who was not following him on Twitter. He urged another recipient of his Twitter philanthropy to buy bitcoin with a USD 20 handout.
