SkyBridge Capital founder Anthony Scaramucci has said he has not lost his enthusiasm for Bitcoin and added that he is more optimistic than ever about the asset.
He has said:
"I’m not a cold figure in this space. I’m not an evangelist. I’m not one of these religious figures that’s going to chant ‘Bitcoin über alles’ no matter what is going on in life. So I want to frame it from that perspective, and then tell you that I’m more bullish now than I’ve ever been."

He has also criticized SEC chief Gary Gensler for the "disarray" in the department. The SkyBridge Capital CEO has added that Senator Elizabeth Warren is acting as if she is Washington's "shadow financial services chairwoman."
He has said:
"You know, our supposedly socialist neighbors to the north have two or three cash Bitcoin ETFs. We've got Gary Gensler and Elizabeth Warren."
Scaramucci believes BTC should be classified as a commodity and not subject to regulation by the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC):
"I think it feels like money to me and feels like a commodity. I think that these things that earn, or you have these staking positions where foundations give you more of something, I think anything that has an earning mechanism to it probably is a security."
