Barstool Sports Boss Baits Bitcoiners In Front of 1.7m Followers

Another day, another would-be bitcoin (BTC) troll (or a new investor): A Twitter storm is brewing online after Dave Portnoy, the man behind the popular Barstool Sports pop culture blog, decided to take a tongue-in-cheek swipe at the crypto community – following on from a similar tirade from Harry Potter author JK Rowling in May this year.

Portnoy has been regaling his 1.7 million Twitter followers and 750,000 Facebook fans with short videos entitled “Davey Day Trader Global (DDTG).” These mainly consist of joke-laden, irony-heavy rants about crypto, bitcoin and some of the scene’s most prominent players, including Gemini exchange co-founders the Winklevoss twins.

He compared BTC investment to playing Pokémon GO, and asked if he could “mine it with a green hammer.”

In one video, Portnoy claimed that he had “spent USD 20k on bitcoin back in the original bitcoin age,” but confessed that he “doesn’t know where it is now.”
