Mike Novogratz: A 'Herd of Institutional Investors' Is Moving Into Crypto

The institutions are coming for crypto.

Novogratz previously led a notable macro investment fund at Fortress Investment Group, where he oversaw close to $9 billion in fund assets and was estimated to have a personal fortune of $2.3 billion. But a poorly-timed bet on Brazilian assets in 2015 right after taking a losing position in a Swiss Franc versus Euro currency trade caused Novogratz's temporary retirement and the closure of his fund. The voluble Novogratz has since staged a comeback on the back of a $250 million gain on cryptocurrency, Ether, in 2017. He's now put about 10% of his own wealth into Bitcoin, Ether and other cryptocurrencies.
