Crypto booster Anthony Pompliano swung by Budden’s show for a far-reaching conversation about cryptocurrencies , and used the opportunity to spread the Bitcoin gospel.
The episode was called “Pomp It Up”—a reference to Budden’s 2003 song “Pump It Up.”
Budden said that he first became interested in Bitcoin after scoring a sponsorship deal with Cash App, the digital payments service run by Square and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, who’s been vocal about his support of crypto in the past.
“Let’s pretend that I took a portion of one of my deals in Bitcoin,” mused Budden. “How conservative or non-conservative should I be in that regard. And how stupid would I be to do that?”
Pompliano replied with some transparently unsound advice: “You should take 100% of your deal in bitcoin, and don’t sell it, and you will be an absolute gangster 10 years from now.”
