He purchased his first crypto ETH in 2017 based mostly on some bigger “astro patterns,” he says, however labored with Bitcoin in a earlier function at a hedge fund.

He is amongst a bunch of astrologers who’re consulting the celebs for clues in regards to the future habits of crypto markets. There is not any clear mechanism that will clarify why planetary actions can be linked to asset costs on planet Earth, however these crypto astrologers are discovering a following anyway.
