BlockTower partner Michael Bucella, formerly of Goldman Sachs Canada, recently told the exact same CNBC segment that while he expects for BTC to fall “one leg lower” before bottoming, he expects a subsequent sharp rebound to the upside, which may put short-term speculators well into the green ... xt-decade/
